List of NASCAR Licensees

Have you tried finding a list of NASCAR licensees on the net? It is certanly an exercise in frustration - until now!



In early 2012 we launched a brand new, searchable Online Directory of North American Licensed Sports Products Companies - it’s called LicensedSports.net and it can be found at that same address and costs just $59 to use for three months. This is a highly searchable directory of licensed sports products companies in North America, companies that have been licensed by various sports leagues (NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL, NCAA, MLS, NASCAR, NFLPA, MLBPA, NHLPA and others). There is nothing on the internet that comes close to this resource. I update the database weekly, sometimes daily. So please take advantage of this resource and "Search Away". If you're not sure if this database would be worth the investment, check out this 3 minute video that gives you a sense of what to expect.

Let me point out two especially useful features of the Online Directory:

1. The dynamic view of each company’s website – when you look at a company’s record, there is a live screen with their website right there on your screen.

2. We have tried our best to show one or more key contacts at each company, and wherever possible we have included email addresses, phone #’s, fax #’s and even Linkedin url’s.

This is intended to be a reasonably comprehensive and up-to-date listing of licensed sports products companies, but please understand no list is completely comprehensive or entirely accurate – we strive to do our best and over time this list will become even better. And remember, because this is a live, online directory, it will be constantly changing. I will be adding licensees as I learn about them, and deleting those who exit the licensed sports products business as well. If you have any comments or suggestions (and especially additions!), please email me at: ssillcox@rogers.com

With respect to NASCAR, I have read in a number of places that in its heydey of the late 1990's and very early 2000's, NASCAR had as many as 200+ licensees. I don't know it that is true or not, but to the best of my ability to determine, it appears that the current number is somewhat south of 100 - still an impressive number of licensees and enough to offer a wide variety of products to consumers, but perhaps not what it once was. If someone out there has a more comprehensive list than the one I have presented here, please share it with me and I will in turn share it via the online directory!

So while I encourage you to visit the actual website/online directory to get up-to-date (and far more detailed) information, here is a snapshot of NASCAR licensees in the online database as of March 2012.

At some point you might ask yourself, why would Scott Sillcox spend so much time and effort to create this Online Directory of 1500+ licensed sports product companies in North America?

The answer is simple. I have a fair amount of knowledge about the licensed sports products business, knowledge that seems to be in scarce supply, especially on the internet. After spending 15+ years in the licensed sports products business, I accumulated a wealth of knowledge that I am happy to share. This blog and the Online Directory are designed to share that information and are my way of giving back and helping people interested in the world of licensed sports products.

This blog and Online Directory are also my way of letting people know that I am a licensed sports products consultant. I am available to consult with existing and potential licensees and my goal is simple, to help you make money by being a better licensee and/or save money by avoiding licensing pitfalls. If you would like to learn more, please contact me: ssillcox@rogers.com or by cell 416-315-4736. I am here to help and I am a good listener! And if you are someone interested in becoming a sports product licensee and haven't yet read my 12 Part Blog called "An Insider’s Guide to the World of Licensed Sports Products in 12 Parts: Practical Lessons from the Trenches", I encourage you to read it - you can find it in the blog listing to the right of this posting. The introductory blog can be found here.

But most importantly, check out the brand new, searchable Online Directory of North American Licensed Sports Products Companies at LicensedSports.net - it's just $59 to use for three months. And I update the database weekly, sometimes daily.

Thanks and Search Away!
Scott
