Iowa Hawkeyes Team Shop: Ways to show your Hawkeye team spirit
As a University of Iowa student, alumnus or fan, you have more ways than can be imagined to show your pride for the Hawkeyes. Take a look at these fun and creative ways to weave team spirit into your workdays, weekends and special events. Use our Iowa Hawkeyes Team Shop to help make it all come together.
Make a fashion statement
Officially licensed Iowa Hawkeyes clothing includes T-shirts in various styles, sweatshirts, baseball caps and more. Here are some ways to wear your pride that go beyond a Tee and jeans.
- Pair a long-sleeved varsity Tee-shirt with a black pencil skirt. The combination of casual and refined says you're serious about fashion but a serious fan too. Add some black pumps, or trade out the black skirt for a gold one for a bolder look — a sequined gold pencil skirt adds even more flair.
- A Hawkeyes baseball cap puts the finishing touch on a casual jeans outfit to go out on the town or just out and about. Pair your baseball cap with a maxi skirt, and you've created your own style. Add a bomber jacket to make an elegant ensemble of any outfit.
- For the guys, a tailored jacket over a hoodie takes the sporty Iowa Hawkeyes sweatshirt up a notch. Add black denims or fleece joggers, depending on the look and comfort style you're going for. Penny loafers are a nice touch.
- Tuck a black and gold Hawkeyes polo into a pair of cargo pants or skinny jeans and add a black leather belt. Don your cowboy boots, boat shoes or high tops tennis shoes — your choice.
Show your pride at work
There are a lot of subtle ways you can keep your alma mater close at heart during your workday. Even if you have a small space such as a shared cubicle, nurse's station, locker or your desk, you can add Hawkeyes pride to your everyday workday.
- Beverages are a part of your routine, from your morning coffee or fruit smoothie to staying hydrated throughout the day. Tote your smoothie to work in a Hawkeyes shaker cup, fill your Iowa mug with coffee or hot chocolate on your break and keep water at the ready in a Hawkeyes water bottle.
- Tote your merchandise samples, materials for your business presentations or products you use for your mobile business in a hardcase spinner luggage that has a Hawkeye professionally displayed on it.
- For your desk, you'll find Hawkeyes note cubes, mini helmet desk organizers, branded pens and more.
- Hang a University of Iowa wall calendar in your cubicle, locker or break room.
- Even items like USB wall chargers for your phone and other devices can remind you of your love for the Hawkeyes throughout the workday.
Host a Hawkeyes game-viewing party
Attending a football game at Kinnick Stadium or taking your seat at the Iowa Field House for a basketball game are perfect ways to get right into the action. But when Iowa City is just too far away, the next best thing might be watching the game on your couch in your Hawkeyes slippers, socks and sweat pants, wrapped up in your UI fleece throw. We have all of that for you in the Team Shop. But better still, get your Hawkeyes fans together for rousing fun and make a party of it.
Email or text the date, time and gathering place to your group, or navigate to our Photo and Personalization Shop to create Hawkeyes party invitations online. By uploading your design, you can create customized postcards or stationery to let everyone know when and where the big game is. Depending on the style you choose, you can have your cards ready in one hour, choose same-day pickup from your neighborhood Walmart or have them shipped to your home.
Game day gear that's splashed with Iowa Hawkeyes official insignia includes tablecloths, paper plates, napkins, cups and more. Use Hawkeyes chips-and-dip platters and melamine trays to serve your goodies. If you'd like even more spirited decor, add black and gold streamers and balloons. Keep drinks cold and handy for guests in an Iowa Hawkeyes cooler. And to make sure everyone is really into the spirit of the game, grab some Hawkeyes temporary face decals to share with the crowd."
