Swag For Any Sports Fan

A true sports fan loves his or her team – and they love sports gear that makes watching the game they love more comfortable. At Promotion Pros, we understand the heart of a genuine fan and that’s why we create custom sports gear that is both fun and functional!


Here’s a list of some of our favorite promotional gifts for sports fans.


Micro Mink Sherpa BlanketBLANKETS

What better way to get cozy on those cool evenings under the stadium lights at a ball game than with a warm embroidered blanket? Whether a lightweight Econo Blanket for mild temperatures or an Oversize Sherpa Blanket for ultimate warmth on cold or rainy nights, blankets are a go-to item for any sports fan. This oversize blanket is laser engraved with a custom logo, with faux mink on one side and faux lamb’s wool on the other side to keep any sports fan focused on the game.






Comfortable seating is a necessity at sporting events. Maybe you don’t want to sit on hard bleachers with no back for the duration of the game. Or perhaps seating is limited at those Little League games, so you want to bring your own custom chair. Whatever the reason, sports chairs are a great value. The 3 Position Foldable Chair is a great option that folds up into a storage bag. Or the Cooler Chair with Beach Umbrella Attachment creates a comfortable space with a sun shade so you can enjoy your kid’s soccer game without worry of sunburn.





Dominator Sunglasses with Lens StickersSUNGLASSES

Sitting out in the sunshine during a match can be hard on the eyes, so protect the peepers with sunglasses. No matter a sports fan’s style, we have a huge selection of promotional shades for everyone. For the serious sports fan, check out the Aviator Sunglasses with UV Protection or the Black Sunglasses with UV Protection. For someone who can let loose and not take themselves too seriously, the Dominator Glasses with Lens Stickers are the ultimate choice. These sunglasses are a fun addition to any group of sports fans attending a game and come in a variety of color options to suit any need.




GameTime Basketball Drawstring BagDRAWSTRING BAGS

Gather up everything you need for a sporting event outing in one simple and convenient bag. Even better, drawstring bags are easy to open – ideal for those stadiums that search bags before entry. The Drawstring Tote and Backpack is a great option for any sports fan, and can hold a small jacket, snacks, water bottles and more. Or perhaps the GameTime Basketball Drawstring Backpack is a better fit. This ball shaped personalized bag is the perfect match for basketball fans to carry necessities with them to the arena.






Let’s face it. Sporting event arenas don’t have the most comfortable seats, so any sports fan will appreciate a stadium cushion! The Foldable Stadium Cushion folds small enough to fit into a back pocket. But the Screen Printed Stadium Cushion is the ultimate in seating. Not only does it come with a carrying strap for easy transport, it features a side pocket where you can carry tickets, event guides and more. The promotional seat cushion is made from PE polyfoam material for extra tushy comfort.

Whether you’re the more silent type or like to make a lot of noise, there’s something for every sports fan. The personalized Contour Handle Imprinted Pom and the branded Rally Towel are perfect for fans that want to cheer and show their support, but not bring a lot of attention to themselves. For the more outgoing sports fan, the Small Cow Bell with Handle is a great option. This fun and catchy bell makes a lot of noise for a favorite team and is made with study metal in a variety of colors.

Custom branded umbrellas are an ideal product for sports fans who attend outdoor games – whether professional, school sports or league events. Any fan of golf will appreciate the 58” Folding Golf Umbrella that comes with a nylon sleeve for easy transport and availability when out on the course watching shots taken on the green. The 37” Arc Telescopic Folding Travel Umbrella is an ideal option for baseball fans who get caught in drizzle. This personalized umbrella folds down to 6 inches, making it easy to carry or stow away in a bag just in case.

When you sit in the nosebleeds or in the outfield, sometimes it’s not always easy to see the action on the field. Bring yourself closer to the game without paying for the expensive seats with binoculars. The Victorinox Swiss Army Binocular is a compact pair that comes with a black carrying case. These promotional binoculars are available in several colors and are rubber coated, so you’ll always have a firm and comfortable grip on them. Any sports fan will feel like they’re in the middle of the action with these custom logo binoculars.

Planning a Tradeshow Booth? Don't Forget These Essentials

Tradeshows are a great way to connect with new customers and size up the competition in your industry.

If you don't have the right booth, tradeshows might also be a great way to sink a lot of resources into standing around bored. Avoid being just another dull booth in a long row by following these essential tips.

1. Dare to Be Different

Of course, that sounds like obvious advice rather than an insider tip. However, standing out from the crowd means looking different from everyone else.

As attendees scan the area and decide where to visit, being noticed is a must. Make sure that your entire display--from table covers and tabletop displays to tents and flags--makes a statement.

When you put your creative team to work, keep in mind that a versatile booth will be the best way to maximize your resources. Incorporating adjustable and flexible elements that can be scaled up or down to accommodate different sizes is a must.

Plus, using technology to maximize interactions will not only make great use of space, it will also keep the visitors coming.

2. Creative Messaging

As much as people enjoy collecting the awesome swag at a tradeshow, the real reason they are there is to learn about your company.

Make sure your messaging is not only informative, but also interesting to the observer. Think about the many ways that people like to be entertained and most of them will include some sort of storytelling. 

Your company or your brand has a story to tell, and the people you are trying to reach have a need that you can meet.

Focus on demonstrating how you can meet those needs with interesting stories that connect with real people. Whether it's through bold banners and displays, fun games, or interactive demonstrations, humanizing who you are and what you do will always make a big impact.

3. Speaking of Swag...

If you want to make a big impact at a tradeshow, leading the loot giveaways is an easy way to get there.

There's no shame in the giveaway game either as we all know that savvy gifts will not only draw in plenty of visitors to your booth, but also keep your name in the conversation for weeks afterward.

The trick to getting the giveaways right is to choose something that makes sense for your brand while also offering the visitor something they can use.

Pens and thumb drives are simple and effective, but a sweet pair of shades or a mini personal mister at a sunny outdoor show might be a little more welcome--and memorable. Plus, your giveaways don't all have to be the same.

Consider shelling out for a few really nice pieces to use as a grand giveaway or as prizes for games to keep the interest up over time.

Promotions that Work

Customized giveaways are not only part of the tradeshow experience, but they are also a great way to get your name out there and attract new customers.

Your promotional products can be as unique as you are--from rain ponchos to sewing kits. When it's time to get ready for your next trade show, count on the experts at Promotion Pros to make sure your swag bags are a hit.
