Up-Close: NFL Light-Up Ugly Christmas Sweaters
Here’s is a World Exclusive, in-person look at FOCO’s innovative light-up, Bluetooth-enabled NFL ugly Christmas sweaters. The modern silhouette tops are the first of a range that’s also expected to include MLS and possibly English Premier League clubs such as Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City given FOCO’s licensing deals with them.
Stick some three AAA batteries in them and become a definite attention-getter. All of the electronics in the sweaters are attached via velcro and can be removed for washing or wear without the option to light up. We opted for the Atlanta Falcons and Miami Dolphins sweaters because of our ties to both teams. Further details on the collection from FOCO are below.
Forever Collectibles (FOCO) have introduced the first series of Bluetooth enabled ugly Christmas sweaters. It’s never too early to prepare for ugly Christmas sweater season, and if you’re a sports fan, the time is now. The officially-licensed knitted NFL team light-up Bluetooth sweaters for the 2018 holiday season have arrived!
The sweaters, debuting this fall with the National Football League, will also be released across all major professional and collegiate sports and availability will vary by team and league later this fall.
“We always look for opportunities to make our products stand out to sports fans,” said Matthew Katz, Senior Licensing Manager. “Last season we introduced the light up sweater and it was a huge success. This year we had to up the ante, and the only way to do that was to add a sound feature.
Now your sweater can literally play ANY sound you want it to, whether it’s a touchdown celebration dance or the team’s theme song, we know our sweaters now deliver the closest in-game experience to fans!”
FOCO is widely regarded as one of the largest suppliers of licensed products in professional sports offering more than 3,000 items to sports fans since 1998. Ugly Christmas sweaters have traditionally been one of the company’s best sellers in the past and with the introduction of the new Light Up Bluetooth speaker, the company stays on the forefront of the category.
Compatible with both Android and Apple devices, the new Light Up Bluetooth Sweater collection includes all 32 NFL teams complete with a speaker enclosed in the bottom of the sweater powered by triple-A batteries.
Sweaters light up with an additional on/off switch located on the sweater. Fans can pre-order and shop the entire Light Up Bluetooth holiday sweater collection at www.foco.com under sweaters or by team. The sweaters are available for pre-order for $89.99 with free shipping for “squad members” on orders over $100. Availability will vary by team and league.
