The sports world has changed more than most of us could have imagined in recent times. We’ve seen full stadiums make way for piped-in crowd noise, and courtside seats exchanged for video boards. It’s safe to say that the need for personal connection between fans and their favorite sports stars is higher than ever.
As the worldwide leader in licensed sports merchandise, Fanatics is constantly searching out ways to bridge together the gap between sports fanatics and their most beloved athletes. The only thing that can compare to seeing your team win a championship, is having that once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet your favorite icon and speak to him or her face-to-face.
Since so many fans are sacrificing the opportunity to have these meet-and-greets in person with limited-capacity, or often times empty, stadiums and arenas, we decided – why not bring the athletes straight to your living room?
Fanatics Live is lining up some absolute legends of the sports world, and plenty of current star athletes in MLB, NFL, NBA, NHL and WNBA, and bringing them to you for a one-time live video stream. They’ll tackle some fun questions, some tough questions, and kick it with you virtually.
Oh, and let’s not leave out the best part – a handful of select fans get the chance to call in, virtually meet their favorite athletes and get a chance to pick their brains while walking home with some fresh licensed sports gear.
#FanaticsLive features a live question and answer session for our fans, led by a Fanatics host, and gives fans the chance to interact with the athletes that have fueled their sports passion. It’s a true one-of-a-kind virtual experience and you won’t find anything quite like it in the sports world.
Take a look below at our past and upcoming Fanatics Live events, to make sure you don’t miss out on seeing one of your favorites live!
