    Get the gear. Buy a jersey, t-shirt, or hat. A ball cap is a must for baseball. Your clothing doesn't need to be expensive. Instead of buying that $90.00 genuine jersey at the mall, you could drop by a discount store (like Wal-Mart, Target, or K-Mart) and get something for a lot less. It's up to you.
    • Decorate yourself! Spray paint your hair or face, in addition to team clothing.

    Cheer. Let everybody at the game know you love your team. It's good to cheer a lot, but too much will get on others' nerves. People and players alike can also find whistling, chanting, and screaming obnoxious and distracting.

    Decorate your room. Hanging posters and flags around your room is a good way to show you support your team.

    Parade your team pride. Bringing signs to the game is also a sign of support. For instance, you could get a large poster board at the crafts store and write or draw something on it, like "Go Chiefs!" or whatever you wish. Do not hold your sign up constantly because they obstruct the view of people sitting behind you.

    Stick with your team. A real fan will stick with their team through thick and thin. If your team has a bad season, that's no reason to stop supporting them.


  • You don't have to make supporting you team expensive. Discount stores usually have good deals on jerseys and shirts, especially in the off season.
  • Screaming, chanting, and whistling often get on other fans' nerves.
  • Show your support throughout the week before the big game. Flying flags on your car and wearing work-appropriate team gear the day before is fun and shows extra support.
  • Holding up a poster or sign at a game obstructs the view of others.
  • If the sports complex you are going to allow you to bring in your own food, do so. It's usually way cheaper than buying food there.


  • Some sports complexes don't let you bring your own food.
  • Foul language is not tolerated at most sports complexes.
  • Don't get too carried away with supporting your team.

Things You'll Need

  • A jersey, shirt, or cap with your team's name on it.
