How to Make a Football Defense Sign


As every football fan knows, “Defense wins championships;” and rooting for your defense can improve your team’s chances of winning. Easily create your own defense sign, whether it’s for the entire defense or your favorite player. Some lucky signs even make it on televised broadcasts.

Things You'll Need

  • Markers
  • Paint
  • Poster board
  • Scissors / hobby knife
  • Sketch out the design of your sign. The most familiar defense sign is the letter “D” and a cutout of a picket fence. Trace the “D” out with a pencil. Sketch the fence using a ruler or yardstick.

  • Determine the dimensions of your sign. Make it compact enough to be allowed into the stadium, but large enough to be seen from the field.

  • Draw the designs on a piece of poster board. Use thin poster board as thicker types, like trifold board, will not be allowed in most games.

  • Cut the signs out with scissors or a hobby knife.

  • Paint the sign and attach other ornamentation. Use bold colors to help your sign get noticed.

Tips & Warnings

  • Keep the the dimensions of your sign under six feet wide or long as it may not be allowable. The dimensions of four feet wide and long should be sufficient.
