It’s one of the most spirited times of the year! Welcome back to fall sports. From football to fencing to field hockey, this fall is packed with action. Whether it’s on the fields, the fencing strip, or wherever the fun is, you’ll need some great Naval Academy sportswear and gear to make it even more exciting. We’ve rounded up some of the hottest new fall sports items to take to tailgates, bring to the stands, and show your Navy pride when you’re hosting a watch party. Don’t see a game without them!
USNA Sports Tailgate Time!
The pre-game tailgate is as big an experience as the game itself. Outfit yours with style. This portable folding table is kind of ingenious, with pockets for your cups and a compact frame that folds up small enough to fit in a drawstring bag you can sling over your shoulder. It’s tailor-made for tailgates. The N* is front and center to cheer the Naval Academy on to victory. Constructed with a strong powder-coated steel frame, it’s also sturdy enough to stand up to the fun. The table features two additional pouch drink holders on the side plus a zippered pouch for phones, keys and whatever you need to corral. Bring this to the next USNA game and you’re sure to get a bunch of “where’d you get that’s?” from the crowd.
For even more Navy fun, add this set of gameday salt and pepper grinders to your table. They’ve got Bill the Goat style and will add USNA flavor to everything from burgers to chicken to veggies. Mediterranean sea salt and whole black peppercorn wake up the taste, and you can use these staples at home to make every day a Go Navy! Beat Army day!
If you want a fresh take on your Navy shot glass, this glow shot glass with a gold N* is the winner. A bright blue base looks great with any liquid. This conversation starter will help you raise a glass to the game every time. Cheers to a Naval Academy win!
The Best Gear for the Game
As the tailgate winds down and you head into the stadium, make sure you’re equipped with the latest fan favorites to keep warm, keep hydrated, and keep cheering the team to victory. To get into the game, use this clear stadium bag to keep your things in order. There are many restrictions on bags, and this approved bag ensures you can take your stuff inside. It’s sturdy and lined with navy blue trim. The charging Bill the Goat lets them know you mean business.
Make sure to grab one of the greatest inventions for games—after box seats. Stadium seats save your back and keep you warm when you’re sitting on cold hard bleachers or benches. Built sturdy with metal framing but soft with seating and back support, this one has adjustable straps to find the right recline. A hook and loop fastener strap keeps you safely attached to the bleacher, and when you’re done it folds up so it’s simple to carry. You’ll enjoy the game better when your seat is custom made. Plus, it has the Navy logo on the back to let everyone know your loyalties. If you just need seat support, you can also check out these soft and sturdy bleacher cushions with anchor or bleacher cushions with charging Bill.
After you’ve settled in, you can use this stadium blanket to keep warm when the temps dip and the stands get colder. Perfect to wrap around your lap and even tuck underneath you to keep your seat cozy and comfortable, this soft fleece blanket also comes with a convenient carrying bag to make toting a cinch. Waterproof and washable, these N* spirited blankets make wonderful gifts for your USNA sports fans, and they’re equally at home at the bonfire after the game too. They also have corner loops if you want to add stakes to keep them grounded for a picnic or playtime.
Hometown Crowds Bring Their Game
Even if you don’t have tickets to the game, you can still be a big part of USNA sports. When you’re supporting your favorite fall Naval Academy team from home, Navyonline has a bunch of great items that showcase your support for just about every sport. Grab a decal or six to cheer on everything from Navy crew to Navy cheer to Navy rifle. Put them on your car, water bottle, computer, or wherever you can spread your USNA spirit
You can also wear your fandom wherever you go, with t-shirts and ball caps emblazoned with the sports of the season. This Navy soccer sport tee is 90% cotton and 10% polyester for added stretch. Its simple design is a classic, and you’ll have fun showing off your Navy pride.
If you’re loving Navy rugby, this adjustable cap fits the bill. Gold stitching is offset by a deep navy blue. Or, get the stone color with navy stitching. You can even tee off with the golf team and say Go Navy! Beat Army! with your Navy Golf tee, the perfect shirt to show your support.
