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.
DETAILS ON JERSEY AVAILABILITY:
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.
