“Football fans who wear jerseys: sports cosplay”

Many sports fans wear a jersey of their favorite player. This has been called “jock cosplay” or “sports cosplay.”

Wikipedia: Cosplay
Cosplay, a portmanteau of “costume play”, is an activity and performance art in which participants called cosplayers wear costumes and fashion accessories to represent a specific character. Cosplayers often interact to create a subculture, and a broader use of the term “cosplay” applies to any costumed role-playing in venues apart from the stage. Any entity that lends itself to dramatic interpretation may be taken up as a subject. Favorite sources include anime, cartoons, comic books, manga, television series, rock music performances, and video games. The term is composed of the two aforementioned counterparts – costume and role play.

So when you wear the jersey of your favorite athlete, you’re basically engaging in Sports Cosplay, right?

@Geph GenCon is generally typically around the same time as the Colts home opener or similar - nerd cosplay vs. jock cosplay (jerseys etc).

In a way, if you’re wearing your favorite athlete’s jersey, jacket, or football shirt, aren’t you just doing a sports cosplay?

Dude, there are replica jerseys that get sold at a premium. It’s like jock cosplay.
Just because someone with an Eagles jacket shows up at a riot doesn’t mean they’re ACTUALLY an Eagle. https://twitter.com/DutyOfAPatriot/status/1004016640198041602

I recall school mates laughing at kids who dressed up as Luke Skywalker or Spock then go to the Big Game with half their face painted blue and the other orange to “support the team,” or show up for class wearing the jersey of their favorite sportsball player. Jock-cosplay.
