Along With Some Other New Items
Overwatch League fans rejoice. Last week the Overwatch League released the first of their new merchandise for season two. In addition to gear for the new expansion teams was the return of jerseys for all of the teams in both home and away styles. Several things were missing from the shop however such as more than one shirt in womens styles as well as some of the player jerseys. The most noticeable absence, however, was the lack of custom jersey options. No more. Custom jerseys are now on sale.
Coming in at a hefty $99.99 (one penny less than a custom Overwatch World Cup jersey). Custom jerseys are available for all 20 teams in the league. Fans can choose both home and away styles for their favorite team. The jerseys run the full range of sizes from XS to 3XL. The description for the example Vancouver Titans jersey I looked at said. “Rep your favorite Overwatch League team when you wear this exclusive Vancouver Titans custom jersey.”
A cool feature on the order page is the ability to see a preview of how the jersey will look. I played around with it a bit and was able to see what my tag looks like on a Vancouver kit. Importantly I did discover that some characters won’t be allowed. Trying to put in numbers, for example, will prompt the form to ask you to enter a valid name. The same for characters like $#%&@!. The name is limited to twelve characters and will show up in all caps on the back of the jersey. For number you can do one or two digits and it will appear on the back and shoulder.
Other items added to the shop include pins, magnets, and stickers (for some teams) and some framed pieces? Fans can get a framed 10.5″ x 13″ Sublimated Team Logo Plaque and Framed 10″ x 18″ Team Logo Panoramic Collage of their favorite teams. Like with the signed gear last week, this is something I’ve seen in traditional sports merchandise, but not in esports.
The Overwatch League is only days away from the start of the new season. If you were waiting for custom options to buy that new Atlanta jersey then the wait is over. Check it all out for yourself here.
