Opening weekend is here and it’s safe to say we’re ready for some college football.
The start of the football season also means it’s time for the UNISWAG Uniform of the Week contest to kick off. Each week, UNISWAG will count down the top 10 uniforms and present the winner with an award.
UNISWAG Uniform of the Week winners will receive a hand-painted cleat, customized to match the winning school’s uniform.
“The award is unlike any we’ve done in the past,” Skye Tilson, CEO and owner of UNISWAG, said. “The amount of detail that goes into it is incredible. In past years we’ve done a football or a helmet but designing a custom award for each school takes it to a whole new level.”
The design for each award will be created by Dez Customz and Kreative Custom Kicks. Adding an award that is customized to display the greatness of a uniform, in this amount of detail, is unprecedented.
“The fact that artwork allows the winner to be uniquely represented and stand out among their peers makes this award special.” Said Mohammad of Kreative Custom Kicks.
The award is used for more than looking great in a trophy case.A major topic of conversation between football programs and potential recruits is swag. Recruits are looking for uniforms that are unique and trending.
Appealing to the high school demographic is key and something that universities cannot afford to miss out on. Whether it’s sticking to a traditional uniform or making a dramatic change, if universities are making a positive impression on recruits with their swag, it’s the correct move.
Being the top source for athletes on all the latest uniform trends, the UNISWAG Uniform of the Week Award is something that the winning equipment staff and school can point to as an indication of their success.
