Here is the post from Epic Games:
Hey Fortnite friends,We’re excited to announce that Fortnite and the NFL are teaming up for the ultimate football face-off. Starting November 9 at 7PM ET you’ll be able to purchase NFL themed Outfits from the Fortnite Item Shop.
Each Outfit can be swapped to any of the thirty-two NFL teams, plus an additional unique Fortnite team. You’ll also be able to choose any number from 0-99 to place on your jersey to complete the official NFL look.
We couldn’t be more excited to cross the NFL and Fortnite worlds!
This isn’t the first collaboration we’ve seen with Fortnite Game, with Fortnite teaming up with Marvel in the past to bring a “Fortnite x Avengers” Mashup that saw the game introduce an LTM with Thanos being a playable character. It’s likely we’ll continue to see Fortnite team up with companies and sports alike.
