CLEVELAND, Ohio — Now that Cleveland is a new world champion — that means fans need new gear.

The Cavs beat the Warriors in game 7 Sunday night, 93-89.

This is the first championship for Cleveland, since 1964 when the Cleveland Browns won.

The new limited edition official locker room hat and T-shirt were going super-fast at the Cleveland Cavaliers Team Store after the game.

The line was about an hour long, but fans didn’t seem to care.

DICK’s Sporting Goods stores across Northeast Ohio were open super late and fans stood in long lines to stock up.

DICK’s Sporting Goods in Legacy Village was sold out as of 12:30 a.m. The store in North Olmstead had to close down because so many customers were there; it will reopen at 6 a.m.

A Fox 8 viewer shared video of the DICK’s Sporting Goods in Fairlawn Sunday night. Fans were throwing each other T-shirts and other items, but were all in good spirits.

Y Design Graphics on Brookpark Road in Parma by midnight was already printing new championship T-shirts and plans to open the doors at 8 a.m. — three hours earlier than its usual 11 a.m. opening time.

The store was creating six different designs Sunday night and were to start with other new designs Monday morning.
