Showing Team Pride: Best Sports Gear Swag

Take your brand to the ballgame, whether you’re a small business supporting your local college team, a travel league looking to excite the fans, or just looking to make your kid’s little league games more engaging for the parents, sports gear swag is one of the best ways to let the fans show their team spirit. Need some ideas to get you started? Here are our top sports team swag ideas to promote teams at any level. 

Why Create Team Merch?

Sports teams are about so much more than just the game. It’s about the energy and sense of community that surrounds the game. Team swag gives fans and spectators another way to engage. Wearing the team colors, sporting their logo or mascot on stickers, waving flags—these all make fans feel like a part of the team and, by extension, part of the game.  

Of course, you don’t have to be in the NBA to share sports swag. Local kids’ teams are also a great place to share team sports swag both to get the kids excited and to give the parents another way to be engaged. Hats, branded balls, t-shirts, and more give the kids something to represent their team at home and offer the community a way to show their support for their children.
