Our Team’s Top Pick

Jersey M54 font
Jersey M54 is one of my favorite sports fonts in this selection, and all fashion or sports designers must have this one in their toolbox. The typeface is blocky and sharp with the curve in edges which is ideal for basketball team t-shirts (or any street clothing), magazine layouts, banners, or team logos. The set includes both registers with 2 styles of “s” letter and alternates for some numerals.
Mudhead Family | Sports Display Font
Presenting Mudhead, a sport-inspired upper and lowercase typeface, including italic and regular styles. This striking font has five weights, twentieth types, slab serif, sans serif, and matching italics. This typeface has a clean and athletic look, all twenty sports fonts have 336 alternate glyphs and extensive Latin script support. Mudhead is a great choice for team logos, headlines, and especially for the sports branding industry, but just as good for any other projects.
Colleged is a baseball font with sharp slab serifs and a competitive appearance. It`s as old school as my grandma and it will help you give a perfect look to any apparel design, team logo, or even professional artwork. This typeface kit includes numerals and some punctuation symbols, but Colleged is an all caps font, so keep that in mind.
Sporty Varsity – Stencil Font
This guy is the King of athletic fonts. Being ideal for apparel design and naming sports jerseys, this type comes in two styles — solid and kinda cut in two parts. Combining these two variations you can add some impact and power to your overall design. It`s a good font, trust me.
Atlanta College Font
This bold font is inspired by American football and soccer uniforms. Atlanta College`s versatility is unlimited and you literally can create any jersey design with it whether it’s sports branding, logo design, or even typography (banners, invitation cards, or posters). In this set, you will find upper and lower cases, numbers, and some punctuation symbols. By the way, this font features multilingual support which makes it perfect for global projects.
Aerotow Font is a handcrafted vintage jersey font inspired by university sports, retro posters, and magazines from the ’70s to the ’90s. The font comes in 8 styles (regular, italic, letterpress variation, and many others) with contextual alternates for several letters. The font stays in memory once you see it and is ideal for display text, print, and also for user interfaces, mobile devices, web or even formal design, and posters, with a set of optimal characters for your design in any layout. It looks especially cool on a large scale, although it still carries it at a smaller point size.
Emilio 20 is a brand-new display font by Gunarta. Clean, with sharp edges this sports typeface is filled with style. It will suit well with sports logo design, football, and baseball team uniforms, and much much more! Unfortunately, the kit is a bit limited because Emilio 20 is an all caps font, so no lowercase for you, but I don`t think it can stop you from making your jersey designs!
Beckon is a neat jersey typeface (which is a rare thing among sports fonts). Three font styles are included — thin, regular, and bold in both cases. Beckon is perfect for sports, apparel, promo, and large headline uses. It’s simple yet eye-catching look allows you to brand each sport and is built with jersey placement in mind, so you could utilize Beckon on each sports jersey to tie things together!
Holtwood One SC
Holtwood One SC is a modern bold font with a competitive edge. In my honest opinion, this typeface is created for versatility fans. It will adorn any of your design ideas from apparel, uniforms, and sports logos to banners and even art! The kit has everything you need for your stellar design — upper and lower cases, numerals, and punctuation.
Scout – Athletic Typeface

This old-school font says everything with its distinctive style. I think it`s good not only for sports jerseys or sports teams projects but for almost anything. Apparel, headlines, maybe a logo … just choose what you need and this typeface will serve you well. It comes with a ligature set and some alternates for lowercase characters. And, of course, it features multilingual support.
Outright Slab Serif

This font is built with solid foundations, strong visuals, old-school vibes, and a minimalistic style. Outright is perfect for team jerseys, sports team posters, branding designs, logos, and any project with a sports theme.
When I see this font, I literally smell blood, sweat, and tears. It`s pushy, it`s rough, it`s shabby. If you are one of those designers who`s looking for something rugged yet professional, I`ve got you covered. Surely, this typeface is good for any jersey design, BUT it will look great on streetwear, posters, ads, and much other stuff. So if you need to upgrade your patterns, you should definitely pay attention to this one.
Touchdown Slab Font
Touchdown! A ballin’ new font that has all the excitement of the game in its classic letters. The lowercase is clean and neat and the uppercase is grainy and textured just like those retro photos of you at the ball games with your old man! This kit has OpenType features and some web fonts. Enjoy! 🙂
Beachwood – Los Angeles sign font
Los Angeles’ distinctive “shotgun” style street signs were last produced over sixty years ago, but these durable porcelain and steel signs are still in use all over the city, by both humans and birds, who like to build their nests between the panels. The Beachwood font faithfully captures the look of these vintage signs with a new matching lowercase. In addition to numbers based on the street signs, Beachwood includes four alternate number sets based on the jersey styles of Los Angeles’ pro football teams.

Mixing them with each other you can create an eye-catching poster, a logo or use it in any of your jerseys designs. If you want to make something with a classic style, don’t pass this font by!
Bronzier – Font Family
Bronzier is a strong font with 8 different variations. This typeface is created with strong and sharp serifs that give it a more masculine look. Classic and modern styles are blended together and which means that you can use this type for the tonne of design ideas. Bronzier design reminds me of the triton sports font family (which is one of my favorites), so I definitely like this one.
Jersey – Condensed Athletic Font
Jersey is a condensed sans-serif typeface, inspired by university sports and football jerseys. It features both outline and regular solid-fill versions. Perfect for titles and headlines, included are uppercase and lowercase characters, numbers, symbols, and support of Latin-based languages. If you were looking for some clean sports fonts don’t thank me <3
Fargo Faro NF Font
Fargo Faro is a (get ready) bold slab-serif bi-linear display jersey font (phew). Because of the lines split this font looks interesting and unusual. It could suit well with some kind of sports team logo, but it can also be used by fashion designers. Fargo Faro supports only uppercase letters, but it also features multilingual support.
Cut from the foundations of athletic block fonts and industrial typography, Redwings’ machined aesthetic & heavy-duty construction gives it the decisive tone ideal for key messaging and headlines. Its’ bold form and unapologetic angles demand attention and deliver with confidence on and off the field of competition.

JACKPORT COLLEGE NCV Font
Yo, this one is HUGE (ha-ha get it? huge font and huge letters… ok, nevermind). So, this font family is cool because it comes in 3 variations. You may ask something like “aaaaand?”. Aaaaaand I will tell you that one of these variations is styled after the Greek alphabet! Isn`t it amazing? Ok, maybe it`s just me being me… again.
College Fusion Font Combo
X,A,B,Y,X and you get a 4 fonts champion combo (yeah, I really tried to compare a font combo with Mortal Kombat). So, we`ve got 4 variations of this type, BUT! I wasn`t exaggerating when I said “a combo”. You can combine these 4 variations together to get tonnes of new fonts! That`s what I call a FONTALITY (I`m really sorry).
