Fanatics Brands, the in-house apparel division for Fanatics Inc., has signed a lease for three full floors, or 92,000 square feet, at 5332 Avion in Tampa, FL. Previously, the apparel division had been spread across three locations in the Tampa area.
The deal was made with Highwoods Properties Inc. (HIW).

Ted Klinck, president and CEO stated, “We’re thrilled Fanatics, the global leader in licensed sports merchandising, will be a new customer for Highwoods. Our Tampa team has done an excellent job marketing 5332 Avion, and our progress to date validates our standard practice of designing properties to provide long-term, multi-customer office flexibility, including build-to-suits.”
“As Fanatics continues to innovate and grow the global licensed sports industry, we’re excited to move into our new, collaborative space in Tampa,” said Joe Bozich, president of Fanatics Brands. “This space will join many of our teams under one roof and allow us to better engage with our employees, foster creativity, and create an enhanced environment of teamwork.”
