Walmart, a prominent North American shopping outlet is reported to sell merchandise for the best League Of Legends, Overwatch and CS:GO teams like TSM, Angeles Valiant and Fnatic on their website.
Apparently, the retailer is looking forward to hop in the esports merchandise bandwagon. Beside jerseys, they have gathered accessories and other gears from world’s top esports organization.
So far, only The Esports Fan Shop stock items from the North American League of Legends Championship Series, Overwatch League and the ESL Shop. This explains their eligibility to sell items from the likes of Cloud9, Ninjas in Pajamas and over 40 other recognized teams.
Merchandise is sold and shipped by the outside organizations, that means the Overwatch League Jerseys will still come from Fnatic and INTO THE AM and LCS merch will come from We Are Nations. However, the prices are significantly low,with free delivery on offers and selected items.
This is an opportunity for Esports Fans to grab the merch from their favorite teams and also skim the delivery charges off the top. The delivery is limited to USA and Canada as of now. While The Esports Shop in only available online, this looks like a step towards brining esports merch to household athletic stores.
