The World Cup has been good so far from a business perspective, but not without some issues. We had a bit of a challenge out of the box as FIFA decided that we couldn't use "World Cup" "FIFA World Cup" or "World Cup 2014" in our banners or on our site, so we had to come up with a little more generic tag line, so "World Soccer 2014" was born.
That said, the success of the USMNT definitely has driven some sales here, we've seen good sales of some of the International gear as well for Mexico and Brazil, and we've sold a lot of World Cup 2014 logo merchandise as well...
We're starting to mark down gear from eliminated teams as well - some cool stuff on there from some of the top teams that underachieved like Spain.
