Flight of the Cardinals - Freshman Jersey

At the first UIW home football game, the incoming class of 2025 will be the honorary UIW hosts. Those who purchase a freshman jersey will take part in the pre-game ceremonies, including participation in the Flight of the Cardinals—the walk-through Tailgate Alley with the Spirit Team, pass the Bronze Cardinal for luck and across the football field!

All jerseys will have the number 25 on the back with a customized name of your choice above it. You can submit your customization during purchase. Each jersey is $25.00 and can be purchased online.

All purchases must be pre-ordered online so don’t wait. The deadline to make your purchase is August 6, 2021.

Our storefront only allows for one jersey per transaction, however, that does not mean you can’t buy multiple jerseys by going through our storefront multiple times. Be sure to input the correct customization, size, and email so that we can notify the right person.

The Office of Campus Engagement will contact you via the UIW email provided during your purchase transaction. We will give you details on the pick up time and location. All freshman jerseys will be available for pick up at the first UIW football game at the Campus Engagement tailgate hosted in the student section.

We will be reaching out to all students who did not get a chance to pick up their jerseys. This will be a reminder that we will hold your jerseys in the Campus Life office located in the SEC 3050 for pick up. The Campus Life office will be open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Thursday, and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.,  Friday.

Unfortunately, there is a deadline for jerseys because of the customization. There are at times a few jerseys that are available at the tailgate on a first come, first serve basis. These will not be available for customization and cost $25.00. Please note that sizes may vary and jerseys are not guaranteed.

In response to COVID-19

Your freshman jersey is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Jerseys are made every year with a different graduating year, so this is the only chance you will get to purchase your a jersey with your graduating year.

Should for any reason the first home game be canceled or under review, we will be sure to communicate with each student regarding an alternative method of getting you your Class of 25 jersey.
