On September 7th, the Philadelphia Eagles and the Atlanta Falcons kicked off the 2018 NFL season and thanks to NFL Lifestyle, COED was there to tell you all about the experience.
Amidst a sea of cheesesteaks, beer, hot dogs, and screaming Eagles’ fans, I stood in the crowd awaiting kickoff. As a huge football fan, I was looking forward to this moment ever since February. If you’ve never been to Lincoln Financial Field or don’t know any Eagles’ fans, let me be the first to say that the atmosphere is exactly as crazy as advertised.
I am not an Eagles’ fan by any means–I, unfortunately, root for the Jets–but thankfully, I was able to blend in with the sea of green, white, and black with the gear that NFL Lifestyle set me up with. I walked into my hotel room in Philadelphia to find a large assortment of Eagles’ clothes and gifts so that I would be able to disguise myself as an Eagles fan for the evening.
To give you an idea of what they offer, NFL Lifestyle and the shop has a wide array of clothing to keep you dressed in your very best. Items include t-shirts, raglans, hoodies, headwear, and jerseys. There are even some more niche items like robes, joggers, leggings, scrubs, watches, ties, bracelets, ties, and purses. So, as you can say, there is literally something for everyone.
Not only do they have clothing, but NFL Lifestyle also has a bunch of items like platters, dessert trays, lazy-susans, mason jars, serve ware, drinkware, pillows, and throws, so that you can keep your fan experience going long after you leave the stadium.
Upon arrival in Philadelphia, we attended the NFL’s Kickoff Experience, an event set up at Penn’s Landing, complete with booths of NFL gear, exhibits (including the Lombardi trophy), and even a concert headlined by pop superstar Shawn Mendes.
Eagles’ legend Bryan Dawkins was on the scene to help present the Lombardi trophy and get the fans excited for the 2018 campaign. Needless to say, when he walked onto the field, the crowd at Lincoln Financial Field went nuts. Despite the game starting an hour late due to weather issues, the fans were ready to march into this season, and Dawkins led the way.
To give you an idea of the atmosphere inside the stadium, here’s the Eagles’ victory chant following one of their touchdowns.
“This Is How You Fan” is NFL Lifestyle’s motto this season and is dedicated to showcasing the fanbase’s individualism, spirit, and pride for their team. From the moment I got there, it was apparent that they had succeeded in this mission.
