In today’s Ticker: An NFL stadium gets a new statue, the return of college football video games, and more.
- The USFL’s video archives are currently stored on VHS tapes. There’s a GoFundMe campaign to have the footage converted to video before the VHS content deteriorates. (From Paul Reeths)

- The Suns have commissioned a designer to make custom Jordan sneakers to match the team’s turquoise Indigenous-themed City uniform.
- Reader Dylan Monaghan has created a uni-tracking spreadsheet for the Trail Blazers. He’ll continue to update it throughout the season.

- Nice article about the guy who designed a new women’s soccer postage stamp that will be issued in 2023.
- Reader Dan Lee was watching the 1982 men’s World Cup game between West Germany and Algeria and noticed that the Algerians had two distinct jersey designs. Anyone know more about that?
- Since Germany isn’t allowed to wear the “One Love” captain’s armband at the men’s World Cup, the starting lineup today posed for their prematch photo with their hands over their mouths to symbolize FIFA’s quashing of the armband. Also, Germany’s Federal Minister of the Interior and Community, Nancy Faeser, attended the game wearing the “One Love” armband. (Thanks, Jamie)
