About Our Breakaway Banners
Show off your team logo at a sports game with these run through banners. Have players of a sports team run through these large banners when entering the field during a game. Two people, often cheerleaders, hold the poles at the end while the teammates break and run through the banners. Our banners can be used for many games throughout the season, due to the durable materials, print, and simple assembly. The knitted polyester material and dye sublimation printing technique hold up in the elements. This is because the ink is infused into the fabric, which prevents the graphics from scratching or peeling off. The poles are also made from long-lasting materials and are lightweight for easy transportation. If you need a new banner to showcase a new team logo or mascot or need a replacement for your old one, you can assemble the new banner on the same pole hardware. Our banners come in a wide range of standard sizes to suit different locations, both indoors and outdoors. Hook-and-loop fasteners are added to the center of the banner to quickly connect the strips of fabric and for the team to easily break through. Give your team a grand entrance with these high-quality banners.

What Are Breakaway Banners?
These break through banners are used at sports games, often football games, for team entrances. The banner is printed with a team logo, mascot, or name to generate some team spirit. Football and other sports players run through the fabric and onto the field to make a memorable entrance. This is a common way for teams to enter a field during a game, because it’s interesting, fun, and a great way for spectators to cheer them on. There’s a pole attached to each side for cheerleaders or staff to hold onto as they run on the field. The two strips of fabric connect with hook-and-loop fasteners for the players to break through. When you need to use the breakaway signs again, simply reattach the fasteners.
Superior Polyester Banners
Your custom banner design is printed onto supreme polyester fabric. This lightweight, knitted fabric is flame-retardant for indoor and outdoor display, but also easy to print on. We print the design using a modern dye sublimation process where the ink is ingrained into the material. This prevents the colors from scratching off the football run through signs while also creating eye-popping graphics. We print your design onto the material with full CMYK colors, which allows you to make your banner as detailed and colorful as you want without it affecting the price. Our display polyester is perfect for reuse over vinyl banners due to its tear resistance and machine washability.
Durable Poles & Carrying Cases
Our hardware includes the poles for carrying and holding the banner up and carrying cases for storing and transporting the set. You can add on a pole kit and carrying case to your order or, if you are ordering replacement graphics, just purchase the prints. They aluminum poles are great for withstanding indoor and outdoor weather because they won’t rust. They are also lightweight, making them easy to transport and hold up while players are running through the banner. The poles come in a carry bag, which can be used to store them when not in use.
Wide Range of Sizes
We offer our breakaway banners in a variety of standard sizes. Choose from several sizes for your banner. Our sizes range from 8ft x 4ft to suit smaller, indoor events, to a large 14ft x 12ft for crowded, outdoor games.
