Under the terms of the deal, Fanatics has become the exclusive operator for both Millwall’s online store, and the official Millwall FC store on-site at their home ground, The Den.

With this partnership, Fanatics has also gained the rights to manufacture a wide variety of Millwall F.C. fan apparel and accessories, ensuring fans of The Lions have access to the widest assortment of high-quality Millwall fan merchandise available.
The revamped online Millwall Lions Store, which launches June 1, means that Millwall FC fans will have access to Fanatics’ industry-leading Cloud Commerce Platform.
