How to Make a Sports Poster


Creating a sports poster is something that allows a sports fan to demonstrate allegiance to a specific team. It also allows the fan to create a personalized poster instead of purchasing one that highlights someone else's opinion on the team's performance that year and who its best players are. By developing a sports poster around a team's individual season, it can have the theme of the season, and you can save your old posters from previous seasons or use them to decorate your room as well along with the current season.

Things You'll Need

  • Poster board
  • Paint
  • Magic markers
  • Glue
  • Tape
  • Paint the poster board the color of your favorite sports team. In a second color that you sports team uses, paint that team's name along the top of the poster board.

  • Find some magazine photos of some of your favorite players. Divide the poster board into quarters; don't draw the borders of each quarter but keep these in mind for organizing your sports poster. In one of the quarters, place the magazine photos you have clipped of your favorite players.

  • Draw or locate a sticker of the helmet or hat of your sports team that you are creating this sports poster for. Place that drawing or sticker in one of the three remaining quarters of your sports poster.

  • Locate a season-long schedule for that team's entire season. This is a good item to put in one of the two remaining quarters of your sports poster. It's even better if you can find the schedule at the end of the season with the results of each game already printed on it.

  • Use a magic marker to fill in the final square of your sports poster. In this quarter of your sports poster include information such as the team's record for that season; the year of that season; the division, conference or league championship won -- if any; and the most valuable player on the team for that season.

Tips & Warnings

  • If you do not wish to paint the background color onto your poster board, purchase a piece of poster board in one of the colors of you favorite sports team. This will save you time from having to paint it and wait for it to dry.
  • When attaching your poster to the wall, be very careful about using tape. There is a risk the tape can pull part of the paint off of your wall.
