NEW YORK — Federal officials teamed with the National Football League Thursday to announce record-breaking results of a nationwide law enforcement effort aimed at combating counterfeit sports merchandise.
Fake jerseys, ball caps, T-shirts, jackets and other souvenirs are among the counterfeit merchandise and clothing confiscated by teams of special agents and officers from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations, Customs and Border Protection, U.S. Postal Inspection Service and state and local police departments around the country, all in partnership with the NFL and other major sports leagues. Much of the bogus goods were related to the two Super Bowl participants — the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks — but also involved other NFL teams and other sports.
