NWHL reveals top selling jerseys
The NWHL revealed its top 10 best selling jerseys on Monday.
After two ties, the league announced that the top 10 is currently comprised of 12 players from the brand new league—five New York Riveters, three members of the Connecticut Whale and two from both the Buffalo Beauts and Boston Pride.
Three weeks into the inaugural season, Nana Fujimoto of the Riveters leads jersey sales. With a large international fan base from her home nation of Japan, Fujimoto has led sales since jerseys were first made available to the public in August.
Two-time Olympian Hilary Knight, who has one of the most recognizable names in the sport, follows Fujimoto as the NWHL’s second-highest jersey seller. Knight stands in front of fan-favorite Jenny Scrivens of the Riveters, who is third despite not yet getting any playing time this season.
In the reveal, the NWHL did not make public the number of jerseys sold or the earnings totaled from jersey sales thus far. What is public knowledge, however, is that 15% of the proceeds go directly to the player whose jersey is sold.
