This WFL team was originally slated to be based in Toronto with the nickname of the Northmen. However, when Canada's Prime Minister announced that no U.S.-based professional football league would be allowed in Canada in competition with the CFL, a change in venue and nickname was announced: the Memphis Southmen.
The Southmen's home opener against Detroit drew 30,122 fans, including Elvis Presley, a professed football fanatic. The season was an incredible success for Memphis as they finished with a league-best record of 17-3, but the following year the WFL folded mid-season. Memphis applied for acceptance into the NFL but were denied and the team faded into history.
Our Southmen tee was crafted with the intention of being the softest shirt in your lineup. Made with a blend of fabrics including high quality combed and ring spun cotton, our tee is cut for a modern fit and printed with water-based inks that actually blend into the fabrics giving it more character with every wash.
