College Q&A: UHV apparel now available at online Fan Shop

I'd like to get a University of Houston-Victoria T-shirt for my son, but it's difficult for me to make it to soccer games. How else can I purchase a UHV shirt?
University of Houston-Victoria sports fans can now shop for T-shirts and sweatshirts without leaving their home or office.
UHV recently partnered with Fanatics Retail Group to create an online Fan Shop at uhvjaguars.com.
On the website, Jaguar students, alumni and fans can find a wide variety of men's, women's and children's T-shirts. Shoppers can pick the color, style and size they want. Purchased items are shipped the next business day.
"It is great to team with a company like Fanatics and help boost school spirit by offering more of a selection in Jaguar apparel to our fans and alumni," UHV Athletics Director Ashley Walyuchow said. "Fans will have an opportunity to shop at their convenience for the latest in UHV merchandise."
With colder weather on the way, it's a good time to stock up on new hoodies, fleeces or sweatshirts. The Fan Shop has all three. Some of the items feature the Jaguar mascot while others prominently display the name of the university.
"One of the great things about the Fan Shop is that it offers a large selection of styles," Walyuchow said. "In T-shirts alone, there are 43 different designs, many of which have not been offered before. UHV alumni, students and community supporters can get exactly what they want in the size they want and proudly wear it to the games."
More merchandise could be offered later on through the Fan Shop.
"We are looking to offer our fans a variety of items as the store grows to help expand the Jaguar spirit," Walyuchow said.
UHV fans still will be able to purchase Jaguar items at home sporting events and the Victoria College/UHV Bookstore, although the Fan Shop gives Jags supporters a chance to stock up before heading out to UHV soccer, baseball and softball games and golf tournaments.
A portion of all online sales helps the UHV Athletics Department. Shoppers can shop by price, with items ranging between $16.95-$44.95. There also is a listing of top sellers, newest arrivals and items for children. Gift certificates are available.
