HBCUFanNation Launches Online Store (4672 hits)

HBCUFanNation.com (HBCUFN), a website begun primarily as a network of independent blogs and bloggers, is now expanding into ecommerce.

Thanks to a partnership with Sportswear, Inc, HBCUFN is using the experience of its co-founders, Kenn Rashad (TSPNSports) and Eric Moore (Onnidans HBCU Sports), to address the growing pride in HBCUs by developing a store where officially licensed HBCU related materials can be purchased. The web address is Store.HBCUFanNation.com[1]

The Sportswear, Inc partnership will allow us to offer various items which can be customized while still providing a consistent representation of the schools brand, said Rashad. As a result of this philosophy, we will only feature HBCU institutions who have officially licensed their trademarks.

HBCUs are enjoying a resurgence as evidenced by Kalia Booker sporting her Spelman College gear on the CBS show Big Brother, stated Moore. And who can forget the outstanding performance of Howard Universitys Afro Blue recently on The Sing Off on NBC

With six HBCU football games on various television schedules, the stores launch comes just before a weekend where, for the first time this season, all four HBCU conferences will have games televised.

Tomorrow night (9/22), Bethune-Cookman hosts Hampton in a MEAC matchup at 7:30pm ET in Daytona Beach on ESPNU. A half-hour later, Fort Valley State faces Benedict in SIAC action in Columbia, SC on Comcast Sports Southeast. Saturday (9/24), the CIAA kicks off its broadcast schedule with Bowie State meeting Virginia Union at 1:00pm ET in Richmond on the conferences syndicated television network[2]. Florida A&M and Southern will meet in the Georgia Dome for the Atlanta Football Classic at 3:30pm ET on Versus. The SWAC-TV Game of the Week[3] features Grambling vs. Alabama A&M beginning at 5:45pm CT. Howard and Morgan State close out the weekends broadcasts when they battle in the New York Urban League Classic in New Meadowlands Stadium in a game scheduled for delayed broadcast on ESPNU at 10:30pm ET.
