ramsIndianapolis-based MainGate Inc. today announced it has signed an exclusive three-year deal to be the on-line merchandiser for the National Football League’s St. Louis Rams. Though terms of the deal were not disclosed, sports business experts said it is likely a deal based on a percentage of sales that will be worth a low to mid seven-figure sum to MainGate over the duration of the contract.

MainGate will manage all aspects of StLouisRams.com/proshop and StLouisRamsProShop.com along with handling all the aspects of the E-commerce Web sites. The new site will be unveiled this Saturday in conjunction with the NFL draft.

While most of the products sold through the site will be made by Reebok and other official NFL licensees, MainGate will handle all order fulfillment, shipping and tracking as part of the deal as well as Web site design and maintenance.

“Our priority is providing our fans with the best experience possible when shopping for and purchasing team merchandise,” said Jim McCallum, Rams vice president of business affairs. “In MainGate, we feel as though we have found a company that is proven in the E-commerce space and has the ability to provide our valued fans with outstanding customer service and exceptional merchandise.”

“Knowing we were selected by the Rams, out of all others, proves to us that we are living up to our vision of being the premier event retail and online merchandising company in the country,” said David Moroknek, MainGate president and CEO.

MainGate, which has enjoyed double-digit percentage growth in recent years and employs 130 in Indianapolis, has merchandising agreements with the Indianapolis Colts, Indiana Pacers, New Jersey Nets, Indy Racing League driver Danica Patrick and the NHRA among others.

  1. Yes sir keep cashing those 300K a year checks direct to IMS, while millions disappear from the teams like Rahal's. Guess there wasn't enough ka- ching going around to keep Sarah Fisher in business without their "merger". LOL._____.Meanwhile back in Realville the series with the "best racing in the world" drew what appeared to be about 5000 live spectators ( and probably 1500 of those Target "freebies", and was beaten in the ratings by a series that reportedly consists of "parades" and aired while most people are still sleeping. That will generate those big ka-chings for sure. :-). But, hey, as long as the Speedway gets the cash who gives a damn about the teams?

  3. If I could actually get the prices...I would do this on my own. We need laws that force provides to publish the costs they will charge. Everyone else gives you the price in advance...except hospitals.

  4. I was under the impression that fencing is not allowed on a front yard and that on a corner, both sides are considered "front" yards, therefore can't be fenced without a variance. Also impedes the visibility for drivers at the intersection. Am I understanding this correctly? Might be why a fence was not included in the plans and a request for a variance will have to be made?.

  5. I was a big fan of Cowards and Carrots, which I got a chance to see at the show. It's currently on Kickstarter, but the designer also put out What's He Building in There last year, which got a fair amount of buzz.
