Tell us a little bit about your company – Who is Fanatics?

Fanatics, Inc. is an American online manufacturer and retailer of licensed sportswear, sports collectibles, NFTs, trading cards, and sports merchandise, as well as sports betting and iGaming.

The company began as an online retailer of licensed sportswear and merchandise, operating the ecommerce businesses of major professional sports leagues and media brands, as well as hundreds of collegiate and professional team properties.

How has Fanatics grown since you started?

Fanatics was founded in March 2022 as a licensed sportwear commerce company. Since then, the company has branched out to betting/gaming and has over 18,000 employees.

How has Arlo Means Business assisted with your growth and continued travel needs?

Arlo has been great for all of our business needs. Arlo Soho was right across the street from our office and though we have since moved offices it is still very convenient

for our many travelers that visit out New York Headquarters. We have had 2 very successful groups one at Arlo SoHo and one at The Nautilus by Arlo in Miami Beach.

Everyone was very pleased with the properties.

Is there anything you and the team love most about our properties in NYC, Miami & Chicago?

The staff is fabulous, and everyone loves that we are preferred, and they know Fanatics.

What’s next for Fanatics?

Continued growth!

What are you looking forward to most by continuing to partner with Arlo Means Business?
