Following its acquisition of Majestic Athletic in February, VF Imagewear, Inc. extended its strategic licensing agreements with both Major League Baseball Properties and the Major League Baseball Players Association. Specifically, the agreements cover authentic, replica and fanwear products for all size ranges, both genders and distribution channels. The license agreement with MLBPA runs through 2012, while the agreements with MLB Properties were extended through 2014.
Ed Doran, president of VF Imagewear, Inc., stated, “The Majestic acquisition effectively opened exclusive channels of retail distribution by combining Imagewear's extensive fanwear capabilities with Majestic's unique expertise in authentic, replica and player products. These landmark agreements solidify extremely successful partnerships and provide the continuity required to grow these businesses for all parties.”
