It’s one thing to scream at the top of your lungs when the New York Giants claim victory at a home game at MetLife Stadium. It’s another when your entire outfit, from the top of your head to the bottom of your feet, displays the iconic logo, color scheme, and branded graphics of the beloved NFL team. That’s the beauty of wearing officially licensed sports apparel on game day. You can exhibit your sportsmanship, allegiance to fellow fans, and overall enthusiasm for the game of football in one article of clothing.
Memorabilia celebrating the Giants in the NFL also extends to the tailgating accessories you use to spend a football-themed day with your family and friends. Whether you’re in charge of preparing food at the tailgate party or exchanging predictions about this year’s seasons with other die-hard fans, you can ensure your devotion to the team is unquestionable. Explore must-have gear to learn what items you should be adding to your collection and wearing for the next kickoff.
A Giants jersey is standard attire for game day. Choose apparel that’s royal blue, white, or red so you can blend in with thousands of other fans at MetLife Stadium. Your jersey can also showcase the number and last name of your favorite player on the team. Plaster #26 on your chest and back by wearing the royal blue Saquon Barkley jersey, which also comes in white and red. If the linebacker is your favorite position, then you may want to sport a Kayvon Thibodeaux jersey that shows a bold, red #5.
Some football legends may no longer be on the field, but you can still demonstrate your admiration for them with your outfit. Pay homage to former players, such as Lawrence Taylor, Carl Banks, and Harry Carson, by wearing a legend jersey or retired player game jersey. Your apparel can also show off your status in the fandom and highlight your familial roots. Consider ordering customized Giants jerseys with your last name for each member of your family so you can have staple pieces to wear for football seasons to come.
Chilly Weather Apparel
When players look up at the fans in the stands, it’s important for them to represent the team colors, even when it’s windy, rainy, or snowy in New York and New Jersey. Apply additional layers of clothing to make sure you’re staying warm amid plummeting temperatures. Wear a branded pullover hoodie beneath your team jersey so you can use the hood to protect your head against the cold. You might appreciate the flexibility of a hoodie that has a full zipper, so you can take it off if the weather warms up throughout the day.
There’s winter apparel without hoods, which may ideal for fall when the season is just getting started. Keep things simple with a long-sleeved top that zips a quarter of the way, or opt for a crew neck pullover sweatshirt emblazoned with the Giants logo. You also can’t go wrong with the pullover hoodie with quarter sleeves, giving you the perfect balance of exposed skin and warmth.
The top of your head may be the first thing fellow fans see when you’re walking through a crowd at MetLife Stadium. Emphasize what team you’re rooting for by donning a hat with the Giants’ logo and color scheme. For a comfortable fit, pull the branded snapback hat from your closet and make sure it matches the jersey or T-shirt you’ve decided to wear. Another option is a two-toned fitted hat, which can elevate your look with its snazzy appearance and pay homage to the team’s iconic Superbowl win in 2008.
During the fall and winter game days, fasten a cuffed knit cap around your head to prevent the wind from entering your ears. Select the knit cap with a pom or the one with space buns to stand out when you’re sitting in the stands. A headband is also a nice alternative to a hat, its knit material designed to fit snugly on your ears. As the temperatures rise, use the hat with an adjustable visor or a bucket hat to shield your eyes from the sun.
Your outfit for game day isn’t complete without Giants-branded accessories from Fanatics. Add some bling to your look with a three-charm necklace with a silver chain. One charm is the team’s New York logo, the second presents the name of the team, and the third is a royal blue stone that sparkles from around your neck. An alternative chain to enhance your outfit is the pendant necklace, containing an 18-inch chain with a lobster claw clasp. The pendant’s sparkling rhinestones and team graphic will make it clear to onlookers where your loyalty lies.
The chain will match perfectly with a pair of post earrings, where the team logo and a blue stone dangle along a silver chain. Slide a silver cuff bracelet on your wrist, the red diamond accent coordinating with the other team colors you’re wearing, and stack a red, white, and blue lokai bracelet on the same arm to elevate your look. If you prefer to wear gold jewelry, then allow the gold paperclip necklace to adorn your neck. Pair the accessory with a gold pisa bracelet and logo wire earrings.
The young football fans in your family need gear, too, especially if they’re coming with you to MetLife Stadium. Instill loyalty to the Giants early by dressing your infant in a red, blue, or gray bodysuit with the team’s name. The sizes range from newborn to nine months, so the onesie collection can grow as the baby does throughout the football season. Commemorate your child’s first steps by purchasing a retired legacy jersey, which they’ll be eligible to look adorable in from their first birthday to they become two years old.
You can correspond the baby’s outfit with your own by fastening the infant version of the fitted cap or knit hat on top of their small heads. Use the knit hat and mittens hat to keep your bundle of joy warm during cold game days, and add layers with a long-sleeve bodysuit. Make sure their outfits remain picture-perfect by tying a big around their neck when it’s time for snacks.
Older children may want to show their support for the Giants in the NFL in adorable costumes. Dress the aspiring cheerleader in your party in the tutu costume, which includes a V-neck jersey T-shirt and a matching tutu. The jersey dress is another option that’s flowy and comfortable enough for the child to run and play at the tailgate party. Pair the outfit with low-top canvas sneakers or low boots with a faux-feather lining.
Even the socks your kids wear can exhibit their enthusiasm for the players on the team. Grab them a pair of crew socks with the face of Kayvon Thibodeaux plastered on them. They may also appreciate socks that show a uniformed Saquon Barklely, along with his team number. Keep all of your family’s belongings together with a miniature backpack.
As a fan of the Giants in the NFL, game day doesn’t start with a coin toss on the field. In reality, you would’ve already spent several hours outside MetLife Stadium celebrating your favorite team of all leagues at the tailgate. The IGLOO cooler is roomy enough for nine cold ones, so feel free to bring a few extra drinks for your friends and family. With the can and bottle cooler variety pack, you can preserve the coolness of your beverages, especially when the temperatures rise.
Tie a four-pocket apron around your body to protect your jersey from accidental spills when you fire up the grill. The spirit series spatula is perfect for flipping burgers. Don’t forget to throw on the barbecue glove to keep your hands clean while you slather sauce on the sausage, chicken, and hot dogs.
To stay hydrated while you cook, steal sips from sports collectibles, such as the thirst hydration bottle that has a capacity of 32 ounces. Reach for a tumbler or stemmed glass if wine if your beverage of choice. You can also use a mug to sip on hot chocolate or coffee when you’re attending a tailgate party in the fall.
After you’ve eaten, break out the board games to pass the time until kickoff and incite some friendly competition with fellow football enthusiasts. Challenge them to a cornhole, ring toss, or chip shot golf tournament. You can also unfold a pop-up tennis table and play back and forth over the net using a paddle and tennis balls. Whoever claims victory gets dibs on a personalized shot and flask set, which will be perfect for participating in tailgate activities for the rest of the season.
Take a break from the games by sitting in a foldable chair beneath your economy tent, which shields your area from the sun. You can maximize your comfort by placing an NFL Giants cushion inside the chair or leaning your head against a decorative pillow with the team’s emblem. With wireless earbuds blasting your favorite tunes, you can wind down before it’s time to enter the stadium.
