Women's World Cup jerseys are hot items

Team USA's World Cup victory can be felt beyond the soccer field. Local stores are seeing a big bump, as well.

Nick Johnson, store manager at Dick's Sporting Goods in Buckhead, says sales of the women's jerseys were doing well before the World Cup, but once the tournament started, and as the team kept winning, it was tough to keep those jerseys on the shelves.

"It's number one," Johnson says of jerseys sales at his stores. "Team USA is outpacing Braves sales. The Women's World Cup is actually leading the way for us."

He says Atlanta fans love their soccer.

"The soccer interest is definitely here," Johnson tells WSB.

He says he was watching the games with excitement, both as a fan and as the manager of a busy store.

"Winning cures all, certainly for us in terms of sales. So we've had great success with it."

Now that the Atlanta United FC has unveiled its logo, he expects to get MLS jerseys as soon as possible.
