Epic Games & NFL Sign Deal to Bring Official Jerseys to Fortnite

NFL fans who play Fortnite will be able to dress their favorite characters in NFL jerseys. The jerseys will be available November 9 at 7PM EST.

Fortnite players can purchase any of the 32 NFL teams jerseys and choose a number from 1-99. These can be bought in the Battle Royale store using virtual bucks. The cost of a jersey is about $15 USD of real money. Players can have up to eight NFL jerseys in their locker.

Additionally, Epic Games has announced they have raised $1.25 billion USD.  This puts the Fortnite producer at value of close to $15 billion USD. Sports figures involved in the round of funding include: Wizards and Capitals owner Ted Leonsis, Warriors co-owner Peter Guber and the legendary Michael Jordan.

“We see the popularity of Fortnite every day at the NFL as many of our players are passionate about the game.” – Brian Rolapp, chief media and business officer for the NFL.
