CHARLOTTESVILLE, Virginia – For the first time, Virginia track and field fans can now purchase custom fan jerseys personalized with the names and surnames of participating UVA student-athletes or with the fan’s name and number combination. The program was made available to the public through an agreement between UVA Bookstore and ProSphere, one of the nation’s leading producers of custom sublimated team apparel.
Fans can visit the UVA Bookstore website for custom fan jerseys and shop by participating sport for apparel featuring their favorite student-athlete’s last name and jersey number. Currently, custom supporter jerseys are available for the Cavalier football, men’s and women’s basketball, baseball, men’s lacrosse, and men’s and women’s soccer teams. Custom women’s lacrosse and softball fan jerseys will soon be added to the lineup.
The UVA Bookstore website allows fans to browse UVA student-athlete jersey options. Currently, custom individual jersey renders are only shown for Cavalier football student-athletes. The other sports programs included in the program will soon have this rendering function, but the list of participating student-athletes is now available to shop.
In addition to purchasing custom fan jerseys of their favorite Wahoo student-athletes, fans can easily create their own jerseys by submitting a preferred name and number through the website.
The selection of custom fan jerseys on the UVA Bookstore website reflects current student-athletes participating in this program. Not all UVA student-athletes or teams are available at this time. Come back as more join the program.
Until a UVA student-athlete enrolls in the program, their name and current jersey number are not available as a custom fan order on the website. Fans should expect two to three weeks for their order to be processed before receiving shipment.
Virginia student-athletes benefit financially from the sale of all supporter jerseys personalized with their last name and current jersey number. Through BrandR, Virginia Athletics’ Name Images and Likeness partner for group licensing, UVA student-athletes received educational information and support regarding this program and were given the opportunity to register and participate.
