About Us

One of the most priceless life lessons I’ve learned over the years is that dreams can come true one way or another.

Tom-Brady-2013
That's not me in case you wondered!

My name is Daniel and I’m a football fanatic. Yea, that’s right! I’m a die-hard lover of the game, and I’ve always dreamt of contributing my share towards its development and growth.

I’m no longer an active player, nor are my skills at par with the legendary Jerry Rice, Tom Brady, or other amazing footballers out there. I did, however, played the game for fun for over 15 years, and I’ve been closely following and watching these stars play the game we all love.

After retiring from my college football team, I realized that I didn’t need to stand in the center of the Metlife Stadium wearing cleats, helmets, and gloves to make a difference.

Instead, I could provide technical and educative support for those who have the skill and opportunity to play professional football either in the NFL or college leagues, or whoever wants to play just for fun with a couple of buddies. 

It was my love for football coinciding with idea to help that made me team up with Wayne – and together we founded Gamedayr.

I can’t describe how excited I was to find out that Wayne, whom I met during my years in college, was nursing the same idea. We bonded like glue and decided to drive this dream with so much turbo that will provide timeless value for folks like you with passion for the sport. 

What Is Gamedayr All About?

Gamedayr is an online blog dedicated to providing informative and interesting content about football and the NFL.

To be more specific, we write and publish comprehensive reviews on top-notch football equipment and accessories such as helmets, headgears, cleats, gloves, jerseys, braces, and other protective gearWe also have information articles about football tips.

If I were in your shoes, I’d probably wonder, “What makes Gamedayr different from the thousands of football blogs out there?”

Well, it’s pretty simple.

For us at Gamedayr, we don’t have our own products, so our drive has little to do with remuneration. It's really all about our passion for the sport.

Although there are good stores and brands out there, I’ve had a fair share of pain associated with buying poor gloves or cleats from vendors who claimed to be offering the best. Frankly, we don’t want you to experience those inconvenient situations. We don’t want your jersey ripped off during a match or be encumbered with torn cleats. 

Which is why at Gamedayr, we’re dedicated to share with our readers the best protective gear and other football equipment that will make them play their best game.

We have single product reviews, comparisons, and round-up articles about all these football equipment and accessories to help you choose the best one that will fit your needs and preferences.

For instance, there are several brands that produce headgear. If you’re not informed about their differences, you may be quick to think that every one of those headgears offers the same features and experience.

However, in reality they do not. Through reviews, we can show you how one product or  brand differs from the other. Our reviews also give you a deeper insight into the pros and cons of buying these products.

It’s safe to say that we help you answer the questions most local vendors have little idea about.

What’s more…

We don’t just have a number of articles in the archive. We’re writing on a regular basis. Which means our information is always fresh and updated.

We follow trends and give you a heads-up when something new hits the market, and we show you how to use these new products after introducing them to you.

Gamedayr is also committed about delivering value through our educational articles and tips that ensures you stay protected from injury. We only want you to play your best in the field, with the right gear and equipment that will further enhance your game.
