I'm going to the Rams game.
Just wondering how the queues are for browsing and buying in the shops/stalls?
I gather the queues are long for click and collect so want to avoid that.

Is there much different on sale to what's online?
I'd like a brochure and maybe some more souvenirs.

Cheers.

It's the Q's for the main merch outlets that are long, not the click&collect.

There are some differences between the gameday merch brochure (see Qualcomm's post above) and the Fanatics/NFL Europe shop site(s).

Note the gameday merch operation isn't anything to do with the NFL Europe shop. It's run by a specialist events merch outfit called IVS. The "game" jersies on sale @ the games will be the proper imported silicon-printed spec, not the inferior heat-transfer "printed to order" ones supplied by the NFL Europe shop.

No idea why anyone would want to wait to get their shirt etc on the day when there's plenty of online shops to buy from beforehand and save the hassle on game day.
Only if you make the mistake of using the main store......

There are other ones where at worst you queue a couple of minutes

It seems absolutely insane that if I order, say, a Ravens Weddle jersey to click & collect then it will be waiting at a stall for me but be a 'fake' jersey but if I walk across 50 yards to the AFC merch stand and get it there I'm getting the real thing.

It's been the same since the "print to order" thing started under Kitbag back in 2014/2015 - we only became aware of it following a rash of complaints about print quality on here, and people comparing notes to get to the bottom of it.

The reasons for it are probably more to do with Nike than anything else, but it's a pity that no-one seems able to improve the situation. Fanatics could quite easily source a decent range of factory-printed jersies for sale thru their international outlets via their US mother company - the only reason I can think of why they don't is there's some sort of legacy arrangement/contract with Nike which prevents it.....

Choice of matchday merch is very random again, last year the selection available was wildly different for each of the games with the Twickers games having by far the best range for depth of choice.

I like the player t's - a good addition to the choice if only one name for each team - but seems crazy to me that for the game in London for the Phins they pick Landry... sure Ajayi was the obvious choice???

IMHO the Rams Vs Giants had the best selection of merchandise and specific event merchandise we have ever had... I wish every game got similar options.

the £30 hoodies were especially cool IMO.

I think for the players pride t-shirts for Miami I have only ever seen Tannehill and Landry.

The ones on offer at special IS game name and number tees with IS logo on sleeve. So it isn't a matter of pre exsisting ranges

- Flacco and Ramsey are the choices for this weekend.

Brees and Landry the next and last 4 not announced.


Last year at twickenham they sold the NIke name and number standard ones for Gurley and Beckham. - incidentally the Beckham ones were of a far nicer quality as they had the raised and ridged numbers and not the smooth ones. My personal preference is the raised ones.

It seems in America they seem to get the raised ones and UK non raised is my experience for ordering both NBA and NFL tees
