Crowd Pleasing Concession Food and Spirit Gear

Posted by Stumps Spirit on October 26, 2012

Everyone knows fans like a little something to satisfy that rumble in their tum when they’re out giving their favorite team a whole lot of enthusiastic spirit. And you know that hosting a concession stand can help fluff up your pockets with a few extra-much needed fundraising dollars for your school’s student organization. So here are a few ways to PEP up your concession stand and please the crowd with these delicious tummy-loving and spirit-rumbling favorites.

Getting’ Diggy With It

The volleyball players won’t be the only ones going for the digs; fans will too. Stock your next concession stand with piping hot diggity dogs and you’ll be sure to spike a hit with your fans. What’s great about hot dogs, too, is- they’re simple! In just a couple of flame-broiled minutes you’ll have a crowd-pleasing favorite. They are a perfect addition to heat up early and have on hand slowly warming in a crock pot or roaster until your fans score a dog. And if you don’t have grill access, they’re just as easy to boil on a stove. Hand them their dog and let them do the garnishing. You’ll have an instant fan favorite.


Go Ahead – Get Sloppy, Joe!

While your fans are out watching their team dunk the ball, let them get a little sloppy with this versatile menu item. What’s great about Sloppy Joes is you can mix it up and make your menu a winner with Sloppy Joes on a bun, or let the fans get a little wild and add it to their hot dog. Even better, have nachos on your menu and you’ll have an instant nachos with meat and cheese. The team won’t be the only ones running the fast break. The fans will fast break to your concession stand, too.


Popcorn, here – Get your Popcorn!

Nothing screams great American pastime better than a good baseball game and a bag of popcorn. But don’t stop there, for those fans that just want to sneak a snack, have a few simple snack items available and you’ll be sure to hit a homerun. Candy bars, popcorn, and chips are quick and simple snacks that the crowd won’t be able to resist.


Give Your Fans the Fizz!

Anyone who craves the candy will tell you there is nothing the like satisfying compliment of chocolate and soda. That’s right, that smooth, milky-rich sensation melting in your mouth of tingling fizz is just the right way to satisfy your spirit-fervor fans. And for those wanting a little variety in their thirst-quenching selection, have bottled water and Gatorade or Powerade available, too. You’ll be sure to run laps around the competition.

Clap Your Thunder Sticks!

Kid and adult enthusiasts alike all get into the spirit of the events with noise-making spirit sticks. The crowd can clack the sticks and rev up the crowd or clap the sticks to the beat of the drummer and add a little unconventional pep to the band. And what’s great about spirit striking sticks is they are small and easily able to be stocked in even the smallest of concession spaces. So make sure to have some spirit sticks on hand and light up the gym with some thunder!

Moooooove Over Opponents!

Moooooooove over opponents, we can’t be defeated. And your fans can remind their opponents with a crowd of noise-making, cow-shaking, bells. And for a little added spirit, personalize your school spirit cow bells with your school logo and ring in the touchdowns at your school’s next football game. You’ll have a whole percussion line in the fan stands and they’ll surely have an utterly good time.

Give Your Fans a Hand!

Not that kind of hand… a Fan Hand! Decorate your stands with the high-wavering team mascot or # 1 sign with a unique fan spirited item. Everyone loves to wave their signs, so give them something to hold high – a school spirit hand. They’ll be sure to make your next big game a FANtastically good time.

Stock your concession stand with these food and spirit favorites for your next event and you will leave the rumble in the stands and not their tums!

Stock Your Tournament Concession Store

Posted by Stumps Spirit on October 26, 2011

From Yum to Fun Spirit Supplies

Looking for some bold and exciting ideas for stocking your team’s concession store? How about offering items that will not only satisfy the crowds hunger and thirst, but shout out support for your team? Think about how you can help create a winning atmosphere by selling items with your team’s name, logo, or colors on them. Fans will also be able to re-live an exciting event by taking something home to remind them of the “Game of the Year”!

Brightly team colored balloons and foam fingers visually lift the level of spirit in the crowd, while personalized noise makers help increase the volume. Megaphones not only help cheer your team on double as centerpieces for the victory or end of the season party. They can be turned upside down and filled with candy, whimsical ribbons on a stick, floating balloons, and/or pictures of team players captured throughout the season. The megaphone displays make meaningful keepsakes for both players and parents.

Who wouldn’t want to have a banner to hold up that proclaims a favorite team with pride? Or one just to boldly say “We Are Number 1,” or “Victory is Ours!” Durable banners with the team’s name and season would make great mementos when hung on a wall in a bedroom, basement, or proudly displayed on a front porch for all to see.

Add specialized candy to bring more fun to the game for young and old alike.  Savor rainbow swirl lollipops or personalized chocolate lollipops. These unique candies can be labeled with the name of the team, organization, or each member of the starting team.

Stock travel mugs with the name and logo of the team. Many parents want to have one of these to proudly display their son’s or daughter’s love for sports. Plus, you might want to offer a free re-fill with each purchase.

Finally, hang a sports related background illustration and bring the game inside the store. These can also be used as a hanging backdrop for the celebration party to come.

Stocking those shelves can be more than just the usual candy and soda items. You can play a large part in spreading team spirit and giving your guys or gals an edge in their important game, while offering something to remember it by, too!

Decorate Your Car- Hockey & Basketball Spirit Ideas

Posted by Stumps Spirit on October 19, 2011

Take your school spirit on the road with you this season for hockey and basketball by decorating your car with a variety of trendy car spirit supplies. Deck out your whole vehicle to let everyone see your school spirit and show them how proud you are to support your sport!

Car Magnets
• Basketball: The awesome flaming basketball oval magnet and the square basketball magnets are perfect for showing school spirit and can be easily removed and transferred to another car if needed.
• Hockey: Design your own hockey magnet by clicking on create-a oval magnet. Then add two lines of text, a hockey graphic design, choose the background color, and decided whether or not to add a background design.

Car Static Decal
To decorate your car windows, use car static decals with a basketball theme or custom make a hockey decal. Car static decals are reusable and easy to stick up and take off your windows.

Car Chalk
If you like to change up your car decorating, then use spirit car chalk or window markers to customize a new design for every game. Use more than one color for a shaded effect. Window markers are simple to use and easy to remove. Be sure to get an orange window marker (or try the orange fluorescent marker) to draw a basketball, and a black window marker to draw a hockey puck.

Antenna Balls
Top your antenna with a custom designed hockey or basketball car antenna ball. Choose the shape, color, wording, and design to imprint on the car antenna balls. Get some for teammates and fans as well.

Air Fresheners
After practice or a game, the smell of a sweaty uniform, equipment, or player can overwhelm the confined space of your vehicle. Hang one of the spirit air fresheners in your car to maintain a fresher smelling car.

Hitch Covers
Choose round hitch covers and select orange for a basketball oriented hitch cover and black for a hockey oriented hitch cover. Another way to go is to select one of your school colors for the hitch cover and then just put a basketball or hockey graphic design on the hitch.
