The perfect source for gaming news
dances crept into the sports world early last year, making their way into the end zones of NFL games during the 2017-18 season. It only makes sense, really, that the most popular professional sport in the United States would want to partner with the most popular video game in the world.
“We see the popularity of Fortnite every day at the National Football League as many of our players are passionate about this game amd the themed skins,” said Brian Rolapp, chief media news and business officer at the NFL.
“This partnership represents a great opportunity for millions of NFL fans who are Fortnite players to express their fandom inside the game while at the same time exposing our brand to countless others.”
Starting Friday, NFL team outfits will be available in the Battle Royale Item Shop in exchange for V-Bucks, Fortnite’s in-game currency. They are available for both male and female avatars, and players can change the number shown on them before every match. Outfits include helmets and a full set of pads. There’s also a vanilla Fortnite uniform available as well.
