About products

The Authenticity of the products sold by 4fanatic.com.

We are often asked  why a particular product is not signed by Adidas/Nike/Puma/Umbro, etc.


Here is why:

When a club signs an agreement with a big clothing manufacturer (for example Nike), they grant them a license to use their crest.

But being granted a license does not imply exclusiveness.

Manchester United, for instance, has agreements with several dozens of manufacturers allowing them to use their crest.

Nike, which is commonly associated with Manchester United, in fact produces less than one tenth of its official merchandise.

Plenty of small and unknown companies buy licenses from Old Trafford club to produce bedclothes, towels, furniture and wallpapers with the crest of the club.

What is more, the same companies also manufacture t-shirts, sweatshirts, caps, wristbands, footballs - that is the range of products associated with Nike.

The same applies to other clubs, for example Chelsea – Adidas, Real Madrid – Adidas, etc.

Nike and Adidas are simply too big to sign an agreement with only one club.

Just as Manchester United and Real Madrid are too big to be dependent solely on one multinational company.

4fanatic.com cuts itself from and despises all illegal practices and has on offer only new, authentic and licensed brand products with labels and holograms that are a proof of our reliability.
