ATLANTA, Aug. 30, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The 18th College Colors Day, a national holiday developed by licensing leader CLC to celebrate collegiate fandom and the kickoff of college football’s opening weekend, returns on Friday, September 2, uniting fans across the country by encouraging them to represent their favorite schools by wearing their apparel on a single day.
This year’s College Colors theme, “It’s About That Time,” underscores the anticipation and excitement of the upcoming season as college fans count down the minutes until their team’s first kickoff of the year.
New this year, fans can interactively shop for college gear by unlocking a new skill on their Amazon device. By simply asking Alexa to “show me my college colors,” fans will be guided by top college sports broadcasters Rece Davis or Desmond Howard to the Amazon fan shop for the latest in college fan fashion and spirit items.
“Enthusiasm and anticipation around college sports is at its highest now,” said Nicole Armentrout, Senior Vice President, Marketing at CLC. “College fans can’t wait to see their teams in action, gather with friends at tailgates and participate in other fun traditions throughout the season. College Colors Day sets the tone and provides a platform for fans to express that eagerness by showing their school spirit to the world. Whether you’re hanging up a flag outside of the house or showing off your new gear for the season, ‘It’s About That Time,’ for fans to display their fandom for their favorite college.”
