Yes, the league is breaking away from Reebok, and instead going with competitor Nike, and today about 11am at Steiner Studios in Brooklyn they will show off the new look.
In an interview with CNBC, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell talked about the groundbreaking new partnerships for the league.
“It starts with two partners coming in with other licensees to re-launch our whole apparel line,” Goodell told CNBC’s Darren Rovell. “We believe in better. We believe our products can become more innovative and we’re doing this around the transition into their licensed products and also around the draft. We’re just three weeks away from the draft and this is a time when fans are starting to focus on the next season and the merchandise that goes with it.
“We think fans want quality. They want innovation,” said Goodell. “They will see that in the products, in the hats, in the jerseys. They will see that in all of the apparel.”
