Evolved Talent Agency's Chris Lloyd on the growing use of coaching in esports.

Football fans will soon be able to support their favorite pro teams while playing Fortnite, thanks to a new partnership between developer Epic Games and the NFL.

Other cosmetics will be available to go along with the outfits, including NFL-themed gliders, harvesting tools, emotes, and skins, the latter category housing a nice referee skin, we're told.

"We see the popularity of Fortnite every day at the National Football League as many of our players are passionate about the game", Brian Rolapp, chief media and business officer for the National Football League, said in a statement. The jerseys can also be customised by sporting a number of your choice. The NFL skins will reportedly have a similar price point to most of the game's other buyable outfits, which typically fall between $12 and $15.
