3 Items to Wear to the NFL International Games
1. Your Team Jersey
Rain or shine, cold or warm, you can't attend the NFL International Games without wearing a jersey to rep for your favorite team. Since they're competing on international soil, they need to see all their fans supporting them up in the stands! Wearing your favorite player's jersey is the perfect way to show your support.
Don't have a team jersey? No worries, a team t-shirt or hoodie (if you're prone to get chilly) gets the job done!
2. Warm Gear
Now, depending on which game you attend, this one is a biggie. In Sept., London will be chilly, so while you might not need to go all out with warm gear, it might be wise to wear a long sleeved shirt underneath your team's jersey or t-shirt in case you get chilly easily. Warm-blooded? Maybe pack a wind-breaker or hoodie in your teams' colors to bring along... you know. Just in case.
On the other hand, if you're attending the games in Oct. or Nov., it's time to bundle up! After all, the last thing you want is to freeze your buns off at the big game, right? It's time to plan in advance and invest in an under amor shirt, a team fleece or a heavy jacket. You can always throw on your jersey over these items and they'll keep you warm during all four quarters. Aim to keep your wardrobe in your teams' colors or grab items with their logos on so you're still showing your team spirit.
Looking for even more warm gear to rep for your team? Visit the team store to find scarfs, gloves, beanies, long socks, and much more.
3. A Poncho
As much as you don't want to hear it, rain is a consistent feature in London. While the rainfall makes the game more difficult and therefore more interesting to watch, it makes it a little less enjoyable for fans. That is, if you're not prepared. Be sure to pack a poncho or rain jacket so if you're in an uncovered area of Wembley Stadium you aren't getting soaked should the weather forecast call for showers. The last thing you want to happen is for you to be soaked in the late fall months in London.
Bonus No. Four
Regardless of if the weather cooperates or not for the games, it's important to remember that you're at the 2014 NFL International Series and that's a big deal! So go all out! Paint your face! Dress yourself up in every piece of team gear or team colors you can find. Rock a foam finger! Make signs! Bring team blankets! Go all out, folks!
It's not every year that your team gets a chance to show their stuff on the other side of the pond, and it's definitely not every year that you get to be there to watch them compete LIVE! It's time to go all in at Wembley Stadium and create the memories that will last a lifetime!
