“There is something incredibly unique in the connection that fans have with their favorite college team – it represents good times in their lives that they want to keep experiencing. Whether a fan is excited by the prospects of a new football season or wants to show pride in the traditions and spirit that his or her university represents, wearing college colors outwardly showcases that fandom—and those colors never fade,” said Nicole Armentrout, Vice President, Marketing at CLC. “We look forward to seeing the hundreds of thousands of fans who post pictures of themselves wearing their team gear on College Colors Day, August 30.”
