Ways Your Sports Team Can Use Wristbands

Written by Michele Wheat

Athletics are a billion-dollar industry—providing entertainment all over the globe to millions of fans. But when managing a sports team, you also have to manage the crowd that follows. Whether you want to please fans that are looking for wristbands for teams or ensure the safety and security of the crowds, wristbands have been a reliable way of doing so for decades. Here are the top 8 ways to use them today:


Not only for games, but also for special events like exclusive events for team sponsors or community nights. Vinyl and Tyvek® wristbands can be fully customized with your team’s graphics and message, with barcodes to ensure validity. RFID bands can serve as a ticket or a cashless payment option. Both are memorable ways to encourage social media engagement!

Identify VIPs

Whether it is a team sponsor, season ticket holder, or a suite/box owner, let them know they’re important by giving them a customized wristband. It also helps your staff easily identify them to ensure that they have a great fan experience. Cloth wristbands are a great and durable option for a long-lasting bracelet for the VIPs, or our selection of holographic wristbands for a unique memento.

Manage access

Help security make their jobs easier with wristbands. Make sure no one enters restricted areas such as suites/boxes, locker rooms or offices. Wristbands such as Tyvek®, vinyl, cloth, and plastic, are non-transferrable and completely customizable. Lanyards can also be used to monitor restricted areas only for badge holders such as employees or members of the media.


Community outreach efforts/fundraising

Using wristbands for fundraising has been a proven way to rally support for any cause! In addition, give out wristbands for team members as a way to show pride and unity.
