It’s been a big year for Stadium Goods . They started 2017 by securing $4.6 million in new equity funding to help expand its rapidly growing empire. Now, in an exciting new development for the company, it has announced that it has teamed up with the fashion-focused online retailer Zalando, allowing European consumers to shop its robust sneaker and streetwear catalogue. The partnership will begin with Germany-based consumers having the chance to purchase selections from the Stadium Goods inventory.
“As a leader in the sneaker market, we’re excited to be partnering with Europe’s premier online shopping destination,” John McPheters, co-founder and CEO of Stadium Goods, said in a statement. “We believe together, Zalando and Stadium Goods will offer sneaker enthusiasts the authenticity and selection European consumers have long been asking for.”
