Get your Arlington Gondoliers football gear here

Arlington Gondoliers sweatshirt

Arlington (Virginia) does not have its own XFL football team, no matter what The Rock tweeted.

It is, in fact, the Arlington in Texas that will have a team, along with D.C. and six other cities.

Given the enticing prospect of an Arlington, Va. team, however, we asked our Twitter followers what a hypothetical pro football squad should be called.

One name stood out.

So we did the only sensible thing: design a logo for this hypothetical team.

Whether you want to envision the Gondoliers as part of The Rock’s league or the new name of a certain for-sale pro team after it’s bought by a certain billionaire with a big stake in Arlington, you can now show your team pride with some exclusive merch.

In the meantime, the original way to show your gondola support has made Washingtonian’s list of 9 DC-Themed Gifts Only a Washingtonian Would Appreciate. Get the OG Gondola Now shirt here.

Note: There are dozens of websites and shady merchants that steal the designs from other sellers and offer their own counterfeit shirts. The items we sell, which help to support our reporting, are only available on Amazon with “ARLnow” listed as the seller.
