Look, we’re just like you.
We love sports and everything that comes with them: the players, the teams, the games, the beer and brats – and, of course, the apparel. But we got sick of looking like everybody else. As art and T-shirt junkies, we wanted to wear something cool and different, something that was totally “us”. We wanted to change the game for the fans.
About a year ago we did just that. We started 500 Level, a T-shirt company made by the fans, for the fans. We coined a concept that is unique, fresh and bold. Since no two fans are alike, their shirts shouldn't be either.
The best part of 500 Level? The designs are created by you, the fan. That's right. All our genius designs were made by artistic sports fans from around the globe, submitted to us, and then voted on to become the next great shirt.
We’re all about standing out in a crowd and selectively choose designs that are head turners. We’re currently licensed by the NFL and NHL Players Associations and are committed to producing items that work in accordance with those two fantastic leagues.
We want you to help us become the company that clothes a new generation of sports fans, one that speaks entirely for themselves.
This is your player, your team, your life. This is your shirt.
Wear it well.
500 LEVEL on the news
* For every pledge except the FANTASY DRAFT pledge you must select from the list of NFL or NHL players below.
** For the FANTASY DRAFT pledge you may choose any active NFL or NHL Player that has signed the GLA (group licensing agreement) with the Players Association. If you have questions on a specific player please ask us and we will let you know if they are available.
WITH YOUR SUPPORT
We firmly believe that every fan should be heard. With your help, they will be.
If we reach our goal, we’ll be able to create fresh new designs for all the players listed below. Of course, that’s just the beginning. The possibilities for our creations are literally infinite, but sadly our wallets are not.
The more money we raise, the more designs we can produce and the more athletes we can immortalize on our shirts. We can gain licensing from other leagues and associations, and start printing our shirts in-house to avoid annoying order delays.
Please help 500 Level reach our goal and join the fan revolution!

Risks and challenges
Fulfilling Orders on Time
- Having the NFLPA and NHLPA approve our designs in a timely manner. They are very busy and it may take a little longer for designs to get approved.
- The amount of tshirts we have to print. Our goal is to get everyone their shirts by the beginning of the season and we will do everything we can to make sure this happens.
