National Jersey Friday

Celebrated on the first Friday of November, National Jersey Friday takes casual Friday to a whole new level. It is a way of celebrating our favorite sports teams so we can all join in the banter and laugh at our team’s colors due to their current form or lowly position. Let’s see why everyone should get involved and show their support for their favorite player on the team.

What Is National Jersey Friday?

November is a time when the football season is well underway, and families have already huddled around the TV and watched their team in unison many times. Still, this is more than a private gathering at home; National Jersey Friday means wearing your colors around town, wherever you go.

As Americans, camaraderie and arguments are part of the fun. We love to trash talk, and everyone thinks they know more about sports than the next person. Created by the NFL Players Association to unite sports fans, the word “jersey” derives from the island of the same name in the English Channel.

Jersey was famous for its sweaters, which is fitting since sports uniforms became known by the same name eventually. Jersey Day encourages debates, tears, and tense discussions about what’s what in the world of sports. National Jersey Friday started as a football trend, but now it doesn’t matter what team or sport you follow; just pull that jersey on the first Friday of November.

How To Observe National Jersey Friday

The only way to observe it is to get involved. Be sure to wash that jersey in advance, wear a classic from a time when your team was more successful, and ready yourself with the stats of your most successful era.

We like to see how people get involved, and you could inspire others by using the hashtag #NationalJerseyDay or use it to see how others around the States show their colors with pride.
