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.
Are these better quality games jerseys the ones for sale in the NFL shop in the tailgate?
Is it pretty easy to tell the difference? I was going to buy one of the online store but will wait until sunday if the quality is better.

The quality at any of the stalls on the day will be better.

The numbers should not feel shiny.

The better numbers have a slight roughness.

That's the best way to describe it. For me anyway!

As stated, Yes. The base jersey is the same, it's the print where things are different.

The difference is quite obvious in an artificially lit environment such as a pub etc, where the reflection from lights shows up the shine from the thin heat-transfer print. The silicon-printed jersies have a more matt finish, and slightly (but noticeable) thicker, more substantial feel to the print.

There's also the issue of durability. The thin heat transfer print scratches very easily, and lots of people (on here and elsewhere) have reported problems with peeling soon after washing/wearing their NFL Europe shop "game" jersey. The silicon-printed jersies are durable and will stand up to many years of wearing, washing and drying.

Yes, all teams. Jersies £110 and £75, Hoodies £68, T-Shirts £30. Just one choice of each for most teams, but Jags/Ravens and the top 4/5 most popular teams (Pats, Packers, Cowboys, Giants etc.) at least have a choice of 2 jersies and t-shirts......

Does the gameday merch shop offer name printing or is it just pre printed shirts?

In other words can I get a Thomas 13, Snead IV 83 or a Vaccaro 32 or will it just be a Brees 9 like everywhere else?

Thanks.

Thank you.

I see there is an ATM there, is the whole place cash only or are cards accepted?

Thanks again.

That's a very fair description, I'd say. I've got 1 of each and it's exactly as you describe. I'm actually scared to wash my jersey with the shiny numbers for fear they peel off.

Cards are accepted

In previous years only Visa was accepted as they were the sponsors of the International Series, they are no longer sponsors so Not sure if that is still the case as I only ever pay with Visa anyway
