The Boomtown Brawlers won their second championship in three years in 2017, and today the OIL received the Brawlers championship jersey. It was produced, as always, by HopcoSports.com.
The commissioner has placed the orders for the championship mini-helmet and championship jerseys. Because the 'Mericans already have a helmet, their manager gave the prize to the Liberty Bowl runner-up Boomtown Brawlers. The Redlegs finished third in the Liberty Bowl. Below are the mockups for the helmet and the three conference champions' jerseys. View previous years' helmets and jerseys here. The helmets are made by HelmetNation.com and the jerseys by HopcoSports.com.

They're here! They're here! Actually, I'm not sure why I'm so excited, since my third 'Mericans jersey somehow hasn't arrived yet. But I'm always excited to see our fake football designs turned into real jerseys. As always, these jerseys are brought to you by HopcoSports.com. Previous years' championship jerseys are here. First, your AFC champion Redlegs:
Since it is his first championship, Zerger went with the home red jersey. The numbers and lettering on this one are sewn-on tackle twill. Next up, the NFC champion Dirty Hippies:
This is Trovillo's second championship, so he ordered a white away jersey. Because of the tie-dyed elements of the lettering and numbers, those are ironed-on. Finally, the worst-to-first PFC champion Dirty Dogs:
Buehre's home black jersey represents his first championship. Like Zerger's, Buehre's lettering and numbers are sewn-on like the real thing. Each of these jerseys has been shipped to its rightful owner. Congratulations, guys.
The 2015 championship jerseys have arrived, and they look fantastic. As always, Earl at Hopco Sports did a great job. Congratulations to three-time champion Jack Bruesch, two-time champion Jimmy Venable, and first-year champion Zack Brake. You can check out all 13 championship jerseys here.
The championship jerseys arrived today for the Dirty Hippies and War Pony. The winner of each conference receives a custom jersey based on their uniform design. The jerseys are produced by HopcoSports.com and include full sublimation and sewn-on tackle twill numbers and logos.
The jerseys for each OIL champion arrived yesterday. They were designed by the team manager and Andrew Krause and manufactured by Hopco Sports. Not pictured: 2009 Champion ThroatPunchers (left the OIL after 2010 season to commish the MGL). NOTE: Due to a miscommunication with the manufacturer, SoonerJack has two #11 jerseys rather than one #08 and one #11. We are working on getting that remedied.
Championship jerseys have been ordered for all OIL1 champions still in the league. The manufacturer says they will be shipped the second week of December. Those receiving jerseys are: Lucky Enuf (navy blue home jersey for 2006 championship); Whackers (red home jersey; 2007); SoonerJack (crimson home jersey for 2008; white away jersey for 2011); and Dogs of War (white away jersey for 2013). Arrogant Americans already received a home and away jersey for their 2010 and 2012 championships.
