End of Season Savings
A great way to save on football shirts is to wait until the end of the season. Retailers have huge football shirt discounts when the season is over. This is become the demand for them slows down. Most people want to get their shirts at the beginning of the season. This is so they can wear them during the season.
Even though some players will change teams after a season, many do not. Most players will stay with the same team for years. So it really does not matter when you buy your shirt. By waiting until the end of the season, you end up saving a ton of money.
Football shirt discounts will very by store. Some stores will offer up to eighty percent off the original marked price. Stores need to clear out their remaining supplies in order to get ready for the next sporting season. If the shirt is an authentic jersey do not expect such a high discount. A fifty percent discount on authentic jerseys will probably be the best you can find. This is still a huge savings though, as many are well over one hundred dollars a piece. Replica shirts will have the highest discount and will still be considerably cheaper than the authentic ones.
One place you should not expect to find football shirt discounts is over the internet. These companies are continuously replacing their stock. And they do not have to clear floor space for the new sporting season shirts to be displayed. This does not mean that you will not ever find discounts on websites. From time to time they will have discounts but do not expect them to be large discounts. When shopping online you also take risks. Make sure that the website has a good reputation before purchasing any thing from them. You do not want to find that you paid authentic jersey prices for a replica.
Another great way to get football shirt discounts is attending a football game. At the end of the football game the visiting team vendors will reduce the prices on their shirts. This is because they want to get rid of as much merchandise as possible. The less they have to pack up and haul the better off they are. But do not expect to see any discounts from the home team’s vendors until the end of the season.
Fans love to display their loyalty to their favorite teams and players. Football shirt discounts are a great way for the fans to be able to do this and still save money. Saving money allows them to buy more merchandise and attend more games. By having discounts the vendors are helping to keep attendance higher in this tough economy. Higher attendance means more revenue for the teams as well as the cities that the stadiums are located in.
Make sure you shop around before making your purchase. Even with discounted prices the vendors at the stadiums still tend to be more expensive then retailers. No one can tell if you bought your shirt at a game or from a retailer, so the decision is up to you.
