In an effort to provide Seminoles fans easier and quicker access to more Florida State apparel and collectibles, Florida State Athletics through its Web site, Seminoles.com, has formed a partnership with TeamFanShop, a company that specializes in online stores that sell officially licensed team products for collegiate and professional athletic teams.
"Increasing the quantity, quality and selection of Florida State merchandise and apparel is a major priority for us," said Ryan Pensy, Director of Digital Media at Florida State. "This new agreement with TeamFanShop will dramatically change the landscape for our online availability of products and is an important component in expanding our brand awareness and serving our fan base."
Fans may access the TeamFanShop Florida State page by visiting www.Seminoles.com beginning this week, or through the Web address http://fsu.teamfanshop.com.
At any given time, there will be more than 1,000 Florida State items available for purchase, including T-shirts, jackets, blankets, sweatshirts, kids' apparel and various other items. With $4.99 flat rate shipping and real time inventory, FSU fans will be given a first class shopping experience.
"Powering the official online store and representing the University with first rate service is very important to us," said Brian Swallow, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at TeamFanShop. "After extensive collaboration with officials from Florida State, we have a strong plan in place that will generate a significant increase in revenues over previous seasons."
TeamFanShop is headquartered in Jacksonville, Fla. and represents several NFL teams, including the Jacksonville Jaguars and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the NBA's Minnesota Timberwolves and a growing number of college teams, including Florida, LSU, Georgia Tech and Arizona.
