The short answer to that question is that it depends on the situation. But it’s not anything to worry about.
There’s a workaround that makes it possible to order from Champs Sports and have the package shipped to Puerto Rico. And the shipping rate is inexpensive.
How to Deliver Items from the Champs Sports Online Store to Puerto Rico
To ship internationally, Champs Sports requires you to have a physical address in the United States. It is there that you will be expected to receive your order.
The good news is that you do not need to live in the United States, or even have relatives or friends that do, for this process to work!
I’ll let you in on a little-known secret: there are U.S. based companies out there that provide customers with physical U.S. addresses. Yup, you read that right!
Their entire business model is based on providing foreign customers with U.S. addresses.
These addresses can be used to order items online, which then get forwarded to your real home address. They’ll even help you out with that process.
These companies are known as Freight Forwarders.
All you have to do is sign up with one of these services, and they’ll allocate a U.S. address to you.
When you order online, get your items shipped to this address, and the Freight Forwarder will receive your package and forward it on to you.
MyUS is our personal favorite Freight Forwarder.
They combine a reliable and convenient service with a fair price. They do not charge additional taxes or unnecessary fees and have a relatively low rate.
We’ve used them to ship packages abroad for years now.
Hopefully, you can now see how it all works. When ordering from the Champs Sports store, or any other U.S.-only store for that matter, you simply get the packages shipped to the U.S. based address.
Your packages will then be shipped to the address that MyUS supplied you with.

Once MyUS receives your package from Champs Sports, they’ll ship it straight to Puerto Rico.
Another great benefit of MyUS is that they’ll actually consolidate multiple packages into one single shipment before sending it to Puerto Rico.
By using these Freight Forwarding services, you can order things from the U.S. as if you were a resident!
