How to Show Team Spirit for Your Favorite Soccer Team

How to Show Team Spirit for Your Favorite Soccer Team

If you’re a fan of professional soccer, then there’s no doubt you probably have a favorite team. Even if you only follow soccer here and there, you probably still have a few teams you like to root for. With that said, it’s easy to show team spirit for your favorite soccer team thanks to a wide variety of merchandise available.

Making its Mark in the United States

Soccer has always been huge in Europe, with the professional athletes being among the highest paid athletes in the world, in any sport. Games draw in hundreds of thousands and the fans are known for showing their “enthusiasm” in some pretty crazy ways. Here in North America, and the United States in particular, it seems to take a little longer to appeal to the masses.

The Major League Soccer (MLS) association was introduced in 1996 with 10 teams in the United States. Over the past few years, an increase in teams and fans has really put this league into the forefront. Today there are three teams based in Canada and 19 in the United States. In fact, this year's MLS championship game final was played on Canadian soil for the first time in Toronto.

While it still has a way to go to hit European levels of fandom, it’s certainly heading in that direction.

Getting Your Hands On Merchandise

It has now become rather easy to get your hands on soccer merchandise from right here within the United States. Websites such as soccerloco are now popping up offering not just team wear from the MLS league, but also teams across the world. For instance, getting your hands on a Ronaldo soccer jersey from the UEFA Euro 2016 championship is now pretty easy. The World Cup is now less than two years away, and fans are already starting to pick up their gear as well.

The Top Items to Buy

So how can you show your team spirit? Well there are a few standby favorites of fans all over the world. Let’s take a look.

Team Jersey – When it comes to popular fan gear it’s hard to beat the team jersey. Whether you pick up a home or away jersey, this is the ultimate way to show your support. You can have the name of your favorite player put on the back of the jersey to take it one step further as well. If your budget is tight, opt for a plain non-branded soccer jersey and just get your favorite player’s name put on the back.

Team Hat – Of course no jersey is complete without the matching hat! What’s fun about soccer is that you’ll usually find a variety of styles where hats are concerned, not just the typical baseball style of cap.
