Stephen: NFL teams up with Fortnite to bring team jerseys to game
The NFL announced Monday that it has struck a deal with Epic Games, the maker of the popular game Fortnite. “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, says in a statement shared by ESPN. As part of the partnership, Fortnite players can purchase a jersey of any of the 32 NFL teams and add a number to it from 1-99. The jersey is purchased in the Battle Royale store inside the game using virtual bucks, at a cost of about $15 in real money per jersey. Each gamer can have up to eight NFL jerseys in his or her locker.
