Within seconds of putting out a new stack of KU championship t-shirts at Rally House’s Lenexa location, they were gone.

Local residents, many of who said they had been waiting over an hour for new apparel, snatched it up within the blink of an eye.

This situation is not unique to Rally House either. Since the Kansas Jayhawks beat the North Carolina Tar Heels in the 2022 NCAA men’s basketball championship Monday night, people have flocked to stores to get their hands on official championship gear.

To make it simple for our readers, the Post has compiled some options on how you can acquire KU’s championship merchandise in person or online:

Rally House

With locations in Lenexa, Leawood, Mission and more, Rally House is offering its customers a variety of KU champion apparel. If you don’t feel like facing large crowds, you can also purchase items on the store’s website.
