Fanatics To Continue Selling Redskins Merchandise For Now

Fanatics will continue to sell Redskins merchandise, even while controversy continues about the team’s name. Large retailers of licensed sports apparel, including Nike, Dick’s, Target, and Wal-Mart recently ceased selling Redskins merchandise. Fanatics administers NFLShop.com, e-commerce for the team's online shop and Fanatics.com. As of this morning, NFLShop.com had 2644 Redskins items for sale, while Fanatics.com was offering the same amount. A Fanatics spokesperson said the sites will continue to sell Redskins licensed items for the time being. The person added that Fanatics was taking direction from the NFL on the matter. An NFL spokesperson noted that a team review of the name is underway and that Redskins merch will remain on NFLShop.com during the review. As of '17, the NFL had a 3% equity investment in Fanatics.
