New line of tongue-in-cheek merchandise celebrates the link between fans coast to coast while letting them showcase local pride.

LOS ANGELES, CA, July 18, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ — Professional athletes have unions, so why not the fans? Enter United Tailgaters (UTG). This organization can’t get its members a slice of the TV revenue or battle the commissioner over a lame suspension, but it does have some pretty sweet merchandise.

UTG gear allows fans nationwide to celebrate their shared passion for the games while also showing love for their respective “local chapter.” The design for each chapter’s merch plays off some element unique to the city—such as a landmark, historical figure, or other icon—and incorporates that city’s legacy area code, e.g., 212 for New York City.

Merchandise includes t-shirts, hoodies, hats, and mugs, ranging in price from $13.99—29.99 and is available at
