Academy Sports has the goods: If Bama wins, you can grab a jersey tonight


For some Crimson Tide fans, National Championship night is also the night to line up at Academy Sports and Outdoors so they can be among the first to pick up that sweet, sweet merch.

As in the past, the store receives its shipment of championship shirts before game day. They’re guarded before the game, much like the Harry Potter books were before they came out, but WVUA 23 got a glimpse of the boxes that won’t be opened unless the University of Alabama wins against Georgia tonight.

But if they don’t?

“We’re shipping them right away,” said Academy employee Bridget Crosby. “We don’t even open the boxes. But we don’t expect that. We plan to open the boxes and sell shirts.

If successful, the Academy will open its doors to customers who want a first look at the merchandise. They will likely sell out, but Crosby said there will be more to come.

If Georgia comes out on top, the jerseys will be donated to charity.
