Custom Jerseys- A New Era In Sports Equipment - Articles Surfing

Football Jerseys have undergone a complete change in its image, appearance and usage patterns. In the yesteryear sports jersey was just a part of the official sports equipment, nothing more nothing less. The jerseys meant for football players had long sleeves, were plain and their material was heavier than today's National football league jersey. Their simplicity and plainness has been a reason for many comments. Reason for their plainness was that jersey was the team gear with no frills or designing. According to legendary football coach Darryl Royal, they were "working clothes".

The growing popularity of National Football League (NFL) and advent of custom jerseys in the football teams has transformed the team gear. Team gear including the jersey has become trendier. Jersey has transcended its "working clothes" impression. Custom jerseys for today's NFL football players have shorter sleeves, vibrant colors and attractive patterns. The football teams now pay considerable attention towards design and appearance of their team gear.

Beginning in 2010, the visiting team jersey shall meet the some criteria.The yoke of the jersey (from the neckline to the seam at mid-chest inclusive of theshoulders) and the body of the jersey (the area below the yoke) shall be white and shall contain only the listed allowable adornments and accessory patterns: stripes, a maximum of 1 inch in width, may be placed on the sleeves; a border, a maximum of 1 inch in width may be placed around the collar and cuffs; a sideseam (insert from the underarms to the top of the pants), a maximum of 4 inches in width may be utilized.

Also beginning in 2010, the home team jersey shall meet the following criteria: the yoke of the jersey and the body of the jersey may not include white except as:the jersey number, a decorative stripe, a border on the collar or cuff, a sideseasm.

Wearing replica jerseys for NFL football matches to support their team has not been a new phenomenon for the football fans. However, now the jersey has taken a step ahead and you will find many people wearing NFL authentic jerseys even out of the football arenas. Wearing national football league team-jersey of their favorite football team or player has become a personal style statement of the younger generation. This transformation is the reason for increasing demand of sports equipment in general and jersey in particular.

Moreover, the extreme popularity of football as sport in America has further popularized the jersey. There are too many avenues for football fans; some of them are NFL Football, College Football, NCAA Football and very popular Monday Night Football. These events have added to the growing demand for football jerseys and team gear. Many people have a passion for collecting authentic football jerseys (game worn) and replica jerseys of NFL stars.
