Sports licensing forms a significant portion of overall licensed merchandise market in North America. Sports licensing covers licensing of logos, symbols, names of varied sports organizations and team players. These items are owned by sports institutions which are known as licensors and they lease the rights to use their property to licensees in return of royalty. Licensed sports merchandise is sold through entire range of retail which includes super markets, drug stores, departmental stores, specialty stores and online stores. Merchandising enables efficient engagement with fans who cannot attend matches, thereby helping to monetize sports brands.

The factors driving the market are growing popularity of sports leagues, growing fan base and a global rise in disposable incomes and living standards, especially in developing economies such as Brazil, China, and India that has resulted in increasing demand for sports apparel. Furthermore, licensed sports merchandise is also driven by popularity of college and university level sports team. Key issues of the market include consolidation of power among licensors, declining retail shelf space, high entry barriers and availability of counterfeit products.
