Academy Sports stocks up on gear for National Championship


Academy Sports and Outdoors is ready for the outcome of Monday night’s National Championship game.

Sunday afternoon, shipments of gear were delivered to stores in Alabama. T-shirts, hats, and other fan gear will be available right after the game, following a win by the Crimson Tide.

The store plans to open up statewide in Alabama if the Tide wins.

Jeremy West, Logistics Manager at Academy Sports and Outdoors, explained how the store is getting prepared for if Alabama wins.

“After the store closes, we’ll start preparing for the Alabama win, so that we can reopen as soon as the game is over. After the win, it’s usually pretty crazy in here, non stop people in here shopping yelling roll tide,” said West.

If the tide wins, Academy Sports and Outdoors stores will remain open Monday until the last customer is served or the Championship products are sold out.
