Philadelphia Eagles Fans Waited In Line For Hours To Buy Kelly Green Jerseys

NFL: Philadelphia Eagles at Miami Dolphins

The NFL marketing gurus are geniuses.

Alternate and throwback jerseys create a fan-frenzy and increased apparel sales.

Never was that more obvious than on Monday, July 31, 2023, when Philadelphia Eagles fans waited outside for hours, tailgating as if it was a normal Sunday afternoon at Lincoln Financial Field, for the store to open.

The Eagles announced last week that their kelly green jerseys and helmets, circa the 1980s and early 1990s, were coming back in 2023.

Many of the fans in line have decades-long allegiance to the team and may own the original jerseys, but they wanted the new ones with current players’ names on them.

A Tik Tok video showed the line, and several of the fans waiting were interviewed.

Check it out.

The frenzy did not just happen in Philadelphia; 90 minutes outside of Philadelphia at the Lancaster (PA) Eagles Pro Shop, there was also a line waiting for the shop to open.

When Eagles Will Wear Kelly Green In 2023

Many fans expected the Eagles to wear kelly green on Christmas Day since it is a holiday color, but that’s not going to happen.

The two games when the Eagles will don the kelly green are both at home.

The first is on October 22 against the Miami Dolphins, and the second is on November 26, against the Buffalo Bills.
