Following the partnership, the company will be handling the official AFA online store all over the world. This deal will help the board to propel its name and provide an international reach for the national teams.
Under the agreement, fans will also have the opportunity to take part in promotions to gain access to special goods and opportunities like tickets to important events and signed t-shirts.
Leandro Petersen, Commercial and Marketing Director of AFA, commented, “Within the global development of the Argentine national team brand and the expansion of the AFA in the world, a crucial point is the access of our global fans to official products.
“As it could not be otherwise, we sought to associate ourselves with the number one in the market in sports merchandising to continue our expansion in the United States, Europe, and the rest of the world. We are happy about this long-term agreement with Fanatics that will allow us to develop our official online store.”
