The full collection is now available for purchase across the Fanatics network of online stores, including NFLShop.com and Fanatics.com. “Our celebrity collaborations perform well on NFL Shop, and we are thrilled to now be teaming up with country star, Darius Rucker for the NFL x Darius Rucker Collection by Fanatics apparel line,” said Ryan Samuelson, Vice President of Consumer Products at the NFL. “Darius’ love of football combined with his love of music made him the perfect candidate to collaborate with and we are excited for fans to shop the new collection available across all 32 teams.”
The official launch of the line follows Rucker’s announcement of his 2022 tour, Darius Rucker Live, which will visit iconic theater venues across the country starting early next year.
