Future Products

After the assumption of the business, we will look to increase our product line laterally by offering additional product categories. Initially, this will be done to increase revenue in months that are historically slower for Sportsuchtig.  We will also significantly grow the existing Volleyball, Basketball, and Football lines in year 1. 

We will evaluate introducing products for the sports of Soccer, Field Hockey, Lacrosse, Hockey, Golf, Swimming, Tennis, Wrestling, Running and Cheerleading. We will also evaluate the introduction of Major League and College sports team logo apparel such as NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, NCAA and NHL.

In addition, in order to serve the older and more affluent sports participant, we will evaluate less vigorous and more relaxing sports lines such as camping, fishing, and golf.
