Scott Soshnick, Michael Barr and Eben Novy-Williams discuss a host of issues related to the business of sports, including the National Football League’s new deal with Epic Games that allows Fortnite players to buy customized jerseys based on their favorite teams. The jerseys will cost about $15 of in-game currency. Also discussed is the decision by Fanatics to nix its deal with Nascar to sell merchandise at tracks just four years into a 10-year agreement. The Fanatics tent was designed as a one-stop shop that housed merchandise from every team. Also talked about was the New Year’s eve matchup between boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa. Mayweather has never fought in MMA.
