Walmart: Seattle, Denver Top NFL, Alabama Leads College In Merchandise Sales

By Barry Janoff

September 10, 2015: Having reached the Super Bowl for the past two seasons, it would be no surprise to find that the Seattle Seahawks have fans and "frenemies" far beyond the confines of CenturyLink Field.

According to mega-retail chain Walmart, the Seahawks' fan base also is strong when it comes to spending power.

Seattle, which saw a boost in support following its victory in Super Bowl XLVIII in 2014, leads all NFL teams in merchandise sales based on figures from in-store purchases, according to Walmart's first rankings based on purchases by NFL and college consumers.

In fact, led by sales of quarterback Russell Wilson No. 3 jerseys, the Seahawks sell "more than three times the apparel per store per week than the next most productive team per store," the Denver Broncos.

The Green Bay Packers, Dallas Cowboys and Houston Texans fill out the Top Five on Walmart's NFL list.

The defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots, which defeated the Seahawks in Super Bowl XLIX this past February, are No. 9 on the NFL list, according to Walmart.

On the college side, the Top Five schools based on sales of merchandise (led by college football) in Walmart are Alabama, defending national CFB champion Ohio State, Arkansas, Georgia and Texas.

Walmart, which reported $16.4 billion in net income in 2014, did not release financial figures for their NFL and college merchandise sales.

However, there is little doubt that sales of licensed merchandise from the NFL and college is big business.

Sales of licensed NFL merchandise tops $3.5 billion, according to industry analysts.

Sales of licensed college merchandise is a $4.6 billion category, according to IMG College.

In addition to the required jerseys and T-shirts, Walmart's fan shop offers items that include towels, bedding, shower curtains, tissue boxes and stationery adored with NFL and college team logos.

Walmart said its No. 1 selling item in the category is a licensed team bean bag toss game, which is popular at tailgating, parties and other gatherings. The top three NFL teams here are the Seahawks, Broncos and Pittsburgh Steelers. The top three NCAA teams are Alabama, Arkansas, and West Virginia.
 
Overall, according to Walmart, Seattle, Denver, and Green Bay represent nearly 40% of its total NFL sales (to date).

In turn, the sales of Packers merchandise are ahead of the Chicago Bears by 36% to date.

At the other end of the spectrum, consumers go to Walmart the least to buy merchandise for the Detroit Lions, Jacksonville Jaguars, Tennessee Titans, New York Jets and the St Louis Rams.

In the college category, the SEC represents 35% of Walmart’s season to-date sales- 2.5 times the sales of the Big 12 and 5.5 times the sales of the Pac 12

And in the "It Pays To Be National Champ" department, Ohio State has sold 4.4 times as much merchandise as Michigan.
