WASHINGTON — With just three days left before the Super Bowl, federal authorities said Thursday they had made “record-breaking seizures” of $4.8 million in counterfeit National Football League and Super Bowl merchandise, and also shut down 307 Web sites selling bogus products or illegally streaming sporting events, over the past four months.
During what was dubbed “Operation Fake Sweep,” an additional 22,570 items of counterfeit merchandise and clothing representing other sports leagues — including Major League Baseball, the National Basketball Association and National Hockey League — were confiscated by law enforcement, bringing the total seizures of the four-month operation to 65,262 counterfeit items, valued at $6.4 million. The operation began on Oct. 1.
