HistoryEdit

Formed in 1995, Fanatics, Inc. was originally started when brothers Alan and Mitch Trager opened Football Fanatics, a brick-and-mortar storefront in the Orange Park Mall, focused on the Jacksonville Jaguars and local collegiate team merchandise. By 1997, a second store had opened in the Avenues Mall. Brent Trager focused on achieving an online presence for the retail company, hiring its first dedicated e-commerce focused employee in early 2000.[citation needed]

Fanatics' early success resulted from a business strategy which targeted and partnered with websites with quality content and domain names. The company began as a customer-centric organization with its mission of "To consider the customer first in everything we do."[citation needed]

fanatics further grew through affiliate marketing, repeat customer business, and acquisitions. The first acquisition (2006) was Richard Perel's Marketsville, Inc. sports websites which included the top college e-commerce property CollegeFootballStore.com. At the time, Marketsville, Inc. accounted for close to 25% of Fanatics' online sales as an affiliate. Richard Perel stayed on board as a marketing executive at Fanatics until 2014, helping the company secure funding at a $3.1 billion valuation in 2013. Subsequent acquisitions were RuppShirts, based out of Tallahassee, Florida, and Demand Made.[citation needed]

In 2011, Fanatics, Inc. was purchased by GSI Commerce, led by chairman Michael G. Rubin, for $171 million in cash and $106 million in GSI common stock.Cool White Base Ryu Baseball 99 Dodgers Hyun-jin Jersey Stitched

In 2012, Rubin purchased Fanatics outright from eBay, along with a 70% stake in Rue La La and ShopRunner, and formed the umbrella company Kynetic as a parent company.[3] Later that year, Fanatics acquired its Florida-based rival Dreams, Inc. for $158 million in cash and $25 million in debt.[citation needed]

Michael Rubin owns 72% of Fanatics,[4] after the last round of venture capital funding. As of June 2014, Fanatics was valued at $3.1 billion.[5] As of April 2014, Doug Mack is the CEO of the company, which currently[when?] has about 1,800 employees.[6] Fanatics was ranked #42 in the Internet Retailer Top 500 in 2014.[7]

In September 2017, Fanatics closed a $1 billion round of fundraising led by Softbank, with participation from the NFL and MLB. As of that year, Fanatics was expected to produce $2.2 billion in annual revenue.[8]

On January 29, 2019, it was announced that Fanatics and Walmart have reached a deal to start selling its apparel on Walmart's website.[9]

Sports LeaguesEdit

NBAEdit

In 2015, the NBA announced a multi-year partnership with Fanatics to operate its 25,000 sq ft flagship store in New York City.[10] Since Fanatics also operates the online NBAStore.com, customers of the New York City store are able to browse and purchase from the entire online inventory through in-store handheld devices.[citation needed]

NFLEdit

In March 2016, the NFL and Fanatics agreed to a new long-term extension to operate NFLShop.com.[11] The NFLPA also granted Fanatics the rights for player merchandise. Fanatics will replace Nike as the largest maker and seller of player merchandise starting in March 2017.[12]

NASCAREdit

In 2015, Fanatics obtained a licence from NASCAR to sell the merchandise trackside at all 36 Realtree Cool Base Stitched Camo Rivera Mariano Yankees Baseball Women's Collection Jersey 42 races and select NASCAR Xfinity Series races. This contract eliminated car owner and sponsor-owned merchandising haulers, which had previously sold mixed merchandise and limited edition items in favor of a singular "superstore" shopping area with one checkout zone for all merchandise, generally located outside one track entrance. It was initiated in August 2015 at the Pocono Raceway.[13] By 2017 however, the plan was considered a failure due to limited merchandise and poor foot traffic, and it led to a decline in overall at-track merchandise sales.[14] Larger tracks such as Daytona International Speedway utilized the first turn for merchandising, however, the majority of fans did not enter through this area as well as the many fans camping infield. Sponsors were unable to find places for drivers to initiate fan contact as they had previously in merchandise haulers for events such as autograph signings.[citation needed]

Fanatics currently employs a "hybrid" system with a blend of haulers and smaller Fanatics tents (size/space varies per track). This allows Fanatics to reach more fans, especially once inside the gates and has reopened the door for NASCAR and driver sponsor interaction. Fanatics President Ross Tannenbaum indicated, "We've got all this money and all this product invested [in the tent] and it's sitting outside the gates where there is nobody coming [while the race is happening]. All those people are inside and at some point walking around or doing something and there's a very poor product offering. To have the best shopping experience, our goal would be to have a really strong offering of product out front like we have today but do a better job of having destination shopping inside the track."[15] In July 2017, it was revealed that the drivers only get as little as 1 to 3 percent of the profits that Fanatics make while Fanatics make 75 percent of the profit. This has led drivers such as Kyle Larson and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. to be vocal and seek changes. On November 2, 2018, Fanatics announced they would no longer provide the trailers for the series as the series continues its decline, though Fanatics would continue with online sales until 2024.[16]

NHLEdit

In 2017, the National Hockey League partnered with adidas and unveiled a new hockey jersey with Fanatics making the jerseys themselves as the new standard jersey for fans while adidas manufactures the on-ice jerseys.[citation needed]

MLBEdit

In December 2015, MLB announces innovative 10-year merchandise deal that splits the rights between Fanatics and Under Armour which lets both companies do what they do best – Under Armour to provide cutting-edge on-field apparel for players and marketing for the league, while Fanatics provides fans with the most responsive and significant merchandise assortment ever available.[citation needed]
