Arbitrator Rules Panini Can Continue Selling NFLPA Products

Oct 2, 2023

Panini scored another legal victory over the weekend in its clash with Fanatics.

An arbitrator denied the NFLPA’s request for emergency relief over a month after the players’ union initiated the early termination of its contract with Panini, which was scheduled to run for more than two additional years. This decision allows Panini to maintain the sale of NFLPA-licensed products as a more extensive arbitration case runs its course.

“Panini will move forward with the production and sale of fully licensed NFL player trading cards pursuant to the license agreement it holds, which it has and will continue to outperform in all aspects,” Panini lawyer Stuart Singer, a partner at Boies Schiller Flexner LLP, said in a statement to Front Office Sports.
