G-III Apparel Group has entered into a new license agreement with National Football League (NFL) Properties to manufacture and market men’s and women’s outerwear, sportswear, and swimwear products in the US under a variety of NFL trademarks.

Under the license, G-III will have the exclusive rights to distribute outerwear to mass-market retailers and mid-tier department stores. It will also have rights to sell outerwear, sportswear, and swimwear to department stores, specialty stores, stadiums and sporting good stores.

G-III has been a licensee of the NFL since 1988. The term of its new license, which extends and expands its existing relationship with the NFL, is for five years and will commence 1 April 2012.

Morris Goldfarb, chairman and chief executive officer of G-III Apparel Group, said: "We are very pleased to have been chosen as one of a select group of companies to continue to grow its business with NFL. We are proud of the work we have done and the relationships we have built with the NFL over the last two decades. We are confident that we will create additional revenue and profit growth for G-III and the NFL through this new expanded agreement."
