The Cost Of Purchasing A Football Uniform

We found our original blog post from 2012 to be so popular that we’ve decided to do some research and come back with a 2015 update on prices!

As a refresher, there are four factors you should consider when investing in football equipment:

  • Price
  • Comfort
  • Safety
  • Style

As the providers for all things football for commercials, TV shows, movies, music videos, and photoshoots, our commitment to our clients is to ensure that our gear meets the highest standards for each of the above factors. Our complete football uniform rentals go through rigorous checks and quality control to make sure it’s ready to go to set.

That being said, if you are looking to purchase a football uniform, here are a few things worth thinking about:

  • Football equipment is expensive.
  • Paying more doesn’t necessarily mean you’re paying for safety.
  • The latest styles and designs will always cost the most.
  • Football can be dangerous. We do not claim that the price you pay will make a product more safe.

By cross referencing multiple domestic retailers and vendors, we used our research to determine a price range of a full football uniform, from head to toe.

Our price ranges will give you a better idea of what you’re looking to pay when you go football shopping.
