In a partnership that began in 2006, New Era has been the official and exclusive on-field cap of the Little League World Series. This sponsorship has been renewed, and an extended agreement through 2020will give New Era licensing and distribution rights to the Little League brand in the U.S. and abroad. All sixteen regional caps will be available at select Lids retail stores and online at NewEraCap.com and LittleLeagueStore.com.
Licensing agency Fremata Partners brokered the retail licensing portion of the deal on behalf of client Little League.
