New Nike NFL Jerseys offer great afiliate opportunity at Fanatics

Nike's Game-Changing 2012 NFL Jerseys are on sale now at Fanatics
Affiliates can now earn commissions promoting 2012 Nike NFL Jerseys

We’re extremely excited to announce that the 2012 Nike NFL Jerseys are now available for sale at Fanatics!    Fanatics is now offering a wide selection of player name jerseys as well as Custom Printed Jerseys that can be made to feature almost any name and number combination.  To understand a bit about the features of the 2 classes of Nike NFL Jerseys currently available for sale, you can visit our Nike Jersey info page.    If you have seen any video of the new uniforms, or checked out online pictures, you may have noticed that in most cases, the actual logos and look of the uniforms didn’t change much.  The main changes to the new Nike NFL Uniforms are in the fabric used, construction of the jerseys, and the fit.   Nike has pioneered the use of performance fabrics that help keep the players cool and protect from abrasion.    Nike’s fit has a more streamlined (slimmer) cut for both men and women’s jerseys.  We’ll be producing a video shortly that you can use on your sites to explain the difference and making that video available through our networks that allow use of video.

We’ve uploaded banner sets promoting the new Nike NFL Jersey line in our affiliate networks as well as in the Graphic Library for our internal affiliates.   If you’d like to work with us, you can join our Internal Program, or work with us through ShareASale, AvantLink, or Commission Junction.

It’s an exciting day here at Fanatics as we’ve launched the first phase of the new 2012 NFL Apparel campaign with new vendors Nike (apparel and jerseys) and New Era (official hats) going live on the site today.


Here are the important dates coming up this month as the NFL and Nike roll out the new 2012 Nike NFL Jerseys:

  • The new official Nike team jerseys will be available for sale on 4/15 on NFLShop and the online Official Team Stores. Fanatics will have the new Nike jerseys for sale on 4/27 (day 2 of the draft) after the NFLShop and the Team Store’s exclusive window to sell closes.
  • Not all levels of jerseys will be available for delivery in April. There are 3 levels of jerseys that will be available from Nike – Game (Replica), Limited (Premier) and Elite (Authentic) – The Limited and Elite jerseys will not begin to roll out until July or August.
  • We’re anticipating a delay in the delivery of Seattle Seahawks apparel, jerseys and hats and we’ll advise when we have a better feel for the live date.

Please note: Nike is extremely sensitive to Trademark infringement, so I would urge affiliates to completely avoid any domains that include “Nike” or “NFL” or “Nike Jersey” or any official Team, Player Names, or other Trademarked terms in them. Violations will lead to termination from the program and commissions will be reversed.

Affiliates can work with Fanatics to promote Nike NFL Merchandise as well as New ERA NFL Team Hats through our Internal Affiliate Program or through our affiliate network partners ShareASale, AvantLink and Commission Junction.  You can also partner with our NFL Team Shop Partners the Denver Broncos, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, New York Giants, Jacksonville Jaguars, and Houston Texans through ShareASale.   We’ll also be launching the new Official San Francisco 49ers Team Shop Affiliate Program this week on ShareASale.

Jeremy Lin Affiliate Opportunity

Earn money promoting Jeremy Lin merchandise in the Fanatics Affiliate Program


Linsanity is running wild here at Fanatics with officially licensed merchandise featuring the New York Knicks point guard has been flying off the shelves faster than we can get it in.   Lin’s #17 jersey is nearly sold out nation-wide (including on the Knicks Team Store and on our sister-site the NBA Store) as fans in New York, nation-wide and around the world scramble to pick up jerseys, t-shirts and anything else they can find featuring the name and number of Jeremy Lin and “Linsanity.”

Affiliates at Fanatics can cash in by promoting Lin products – we’ve set up a landing page at that will be the home of any Jeremy Lin product that we offer.  We’re starting to stock posters, framed art and other collectibles celebrating Lin as well as the usual selection of t-shirts and jerseys.

The pace that we’re selling Lin merchandise is unprecedented for a player with less than 10 games played in the league and with every big stat line Lin puts up and every game winning 3-pointer he drains his legend grows.

Are you cashing in on Linmania?  If not, you should get on this opportunity by logging into our Internal Program, AvantLink, ShareASale or CJ and grabbing your links to promote Jeremy Lin products at Fanatics.
