Philadelphia is home to some awesome sports teams – the Phillies, the Eagles, the 76ers, and the Villanova Wildcats, just to name a few. If there is one thing we know, it’s that Philly sports fans are extremely proud, very outspoken, and fiercely loyal.
There’s a good chance that you have some Philly sports fans on your holiday shopping list, and we have just the gift ideas you need. Any fan would love some new gear to wear when their favorite team is playing, whether it’s a warm knit hat for those icy cold nights at the stadium or a crisp new jersey to wear while watching the game at a local sports bar. Here at Wayne Sporting Goods, we have the gifts you need for every Philly Sports fan on your list – but first, we’d like to take a minute to talk about why Philly sports fans have been so very excited this year: the Philadelphia Eagles and the Philadelphia 76ers.
Why Are Philly Sports Fans So Excited?
There’s good reason for Philly Sports fans to be stirred up this year! Take the Eagles this season: out of 12 games thus far, they have set a new record for themselves of 10-2 – losing only to the Kansas City Chiefs early on the season and recently to the Seattle Seahawks. They remain one of the top franchises in the NFL, and this is undoubtedly their best season since 1960 so far. Needless to say, the fans couldn’t be happier or prouder! Some say that the most exciting game of the season was the Eagles’ jaw dropping 37 – 9 win against the Dallas Cowboys after trailing 9 – 7 at halftime. And fans love the strongest players, including quarterback Carson Wentz (think Wentzylvania!).
Fans of the 76ers are just as excited as the team currently has a standing of #3 in the Atlantic Division and #5 in the Eastern Conference. They beat the Pistons in a very close game of 108 to 103 just last week, and are due to play the Suns and Lakers this week. Fan favorites this season have been Joel “The Process” Embiid and rookie Ben Simmons, and both players have undoubtedly exceeded the expectations of their fan bases. Philly fans are as stirred up about the great season the 76ers are having as they are about our beloved Eagles!
Gift Ideas for Eagles Fans
For Eagles fans, we have a fantastic selection of high quality, high spirit gifts. A stylish and useful choice at Wayne Sporting Goods is the five-panel Marvin Snapback relaxed twill cap. What sets this cap apart from your typical fan merchandise is its vintage look, which harkens back to the older Eagles’ uniform. Longtime fans and new fans alike will love the attractive grey body with a contrasting green top button and brim.
Next, let’s talk about the Philadelphia Eagles Fairfax Knit Hat. This fan gear is both cool looking with the tri-color design in the Eagles team colors and useful because it will keep you at the stadium for the very last exciting moments that will be coming up this month! We’ve got a variety of hats and beanies for Eagles fans, as well as a large selection of socks for an easy stocking stuffer gift.
We also carry a huge selection of 47 Brand t-shirts for Philadelphia Eagles fans. There’s a style for every fan on your Christmas shopping list (and you should probably pick up a few for yourself, too). For the ladies out there, we also have a feminine Crosstown Flanker V-Neck Tee that lets her show her team spirit through a striking screen-printed Eagle on the front. This 100 percent cotton jersey has a soft feel and a tagless label to guarantee a comfortable experience wearing it. When it comes to the younger fans, we have Nike Carson Wentz youth jerseys, which your little fans have probably already demanded from Santa!
Gift Ideas for Sixers Fans
Wayne Sporting Goods has the perfect gifts for all those Sixers fans out there! We have Embiid and Simmons Sixers jerseys in youth sizes for those younger fans on your shopping list. And for the big kids, we offer a variety of 47 Brand t-shirts they can wear to show their Philadelphia 76ers team spirit, showing their love and support of this truly awesome team and the great season they are having.
