There’s a commonly overlooked group in sports.

It isn’t the team. It isn’t the staff. It isn’t the water boys, or the bat girls.

It’s the fans.

While they may not be on the roster, your fans are an integral part of your  team’s success. They hold incredible power, and it can be felt when they show up in numbers to your games. However, their influence isn’t only on the field. It’s off the field too: with sports apparel, community engagement, social media, and more. In a way, your fans are included in the lifeblood of your team.

Here are some ways to engage with your team:

Get Involved in your Community.

Outside of sports, your fans are members of the community. Your fans give you lots of love; it always helps to give some of that back! It’s absolutely vital to show your community that you care, and what better way than to get involved in what concerns them most? (Outside of your season wins, of course).

Get Involved in Social Media.

Social media has gotten a bad rap over the past few years. Despite this, social media use is still widely popular, and continues to be at the front lines of communication and sharing. Never in history has there been a time where we could communicate as clearly and intimately with our fans as today using social media platforms like Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, etc.

These tools allow you to control the conversation and engage with your fans endlessly. This fosters a tight-knit community of loyalty, pride, and dedication, all of which are important both on-court and off-court.

Sell Merch!

When it comes to boosting school or team spirit, pride and fan loyalty, one of the most tried and true methods is sports apparel. Your fans are part of the team, so let them show off their pride! Here at Red’s Team Sports, we offer custom sports apparel in multiple forms, including embroidery, sublimation, and screen printing. In addition, we offer custom design, so your fans can sport your apparel with pride!


Communication with your fans has never been easier, and the sense of unity and pride within your fanbase is like no other. Your team can make an impact on your community and the world, and now is the time to make your mark.
