The upcoming NFL season is sure to inspire pro football fans and inspire NFL Merchandise manufacturers to create some colorful, new and fun NFL fanwear. If you’re an NFL fan, you’ve no doubt seen fan wear including banners, hats and masks at your NFL stadium’s fanwear merchandise store. You may have even purchased some of it. Serious fans pass by the junk however to get the fanwear everyone notices. Why because the cheap unofficial gear falls apart and just looks bad. Authenticity is important to football fans.
Dedication by fans to their local National League Football teams is an interesting cultural phenomenon that isn’t even rivaled by European soccer fanatics. The fact that their on-field heroes are adorned in uniforms with helmets emblazoned with team logos might have something to do with NFL fan’s insatiable demand for NFL fan merchandise. Another reason is that people want to have an event, even a party event to go to on the weekend. Sunday is normally a pretty quiet, uneventful day and that just doesn’t suit many sports fans. A Sunday afternoon is the perfect time for friends to gather and root for their home team.
Millions of fanatics and US football fans watch their favorite teams play every Sunday afternoon. It brings people to local bars and to parent’s homes. It’s the perfect excuse for socializing. The social part of NFL game watching is a big part of it too.
If you’re not that much of a fan and you’re wondering if anyone buys all the hats, wigs, sponge fingers, and jerseys, you should know that NFL fan merchandise is very popular. Fans fill their recreation rooms with footballs, bobblehead dolls, game masks, wigs, banners, mugs and posters. And kids love this stuff for their bedrooms.
Few kids will sit through a 3-hour football telecast, but when Dads and their kids can share something for a short time, that shared spirit brings them together. The fact they’re rooting for the same team makes them feel closer. Kids learn something about the spirit of a community and the sharing of common hopes. In a world of war and televised mayhem and tragedy, kids can be more concerned about someone completing a pass and making a touchdown. Whether for glory or not, kids get to aspire to something beyond themselves and their daily routine.
NFL merchandises such as game masks and hats represent their belief in a common dream. It might be winning, or it could be just improving, but we can all relate to it. That’s why Sunday afternoon football is hard to ignore and why some football fanatics can’t get enough of it.
For kids and teens, an official logo’d item of NFL merchandise is still a status item. Of course, when it’s worn to an NFL game, it’s a demonstration of the home team spirit. Win or lose, these fans love their team and all it represents. When you get down to it, the NFL team simply represents the city or community. Or it might go beyond that. If you’re wearing a Dallas Cowboy hat or fan face, it might represent the spirit of America or perhaps that the Cowboys are a successful team. Fans still cheer for the underdogs but you’ll see more hats, wigs and masks with the NFL’s top teams. Some cities have fans that are a cut above the rest. New York Jets fans for instance show very strong loyalty to their team even though they don’t win the Superbowl or play in it. That shows you there is something beyond winning that makes these fans so spirited. When it comes to NFL culture, you’re going to see some real dedication to the football experience in New York. In the mid west, you’ll also see strong support for the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears.
So, what if you’re a fan and you want to show a little more spirited support for the local team? There are some great online retail stores that offer a good selection of authentic logo NFL merchandise.
NFL merchandise can be divided into two categories: wearables and non-wearables. A wearable piece of merchandise would include a hat, mask, wig or jersey. A non-wearable would be a mug, cup, bobblehead dolls, football, or window shade for a car window.
Some of the best wearable items are the fan masks. These are made of a soft pliable rubber and there’s a headband to keep it on securely. Fan wigs are perhaps the most zany. Here, you’ve got an item that might keep your head warmer than without. Fan face rally caps are another item that fuses a rally cap baseball hat with a colorful mask. They have a fleece headband that has crazy team-colored hair attached to it and each has an officially licensed embroidered team name and logo.
For kids, you can get a youth football outfit. They come complete with a plastic helmet, padded shoulder pads, a football jersey and pants. These youth football outfit kits come with iron numbers so your child can pretend he’s his favorite player on the NFL team. Kids love these outfits. They can wear them as pajamas or even as Kids Halloween costumes.
This season, don’t sit on the sidelines when the game is on. Get into the spirit of the 2006 football season and get your official logo NFL merchandise. Whether for display or for wearing, they’ll lift the spirit of your football party or at the game.
