What Women Want

Let's talk about the number 45. It's not a player, an age or a price. It's a statistic, but one that doesn't get quoted by sports analysts. In a league dominated by men both on the field and in the stands, it may come as a surprise that 45 percent of professional football fans are women. In addition to owning almost half of the NFL's fan base, today's modern woman also loves to shop, maintain her appearance and express her individuality, not to mention females have greater and greater influence over purchasing decisions. Connect the dots and you'll uncover one very attractive consumer market that the NFL, and the larger sports industry, has yet to truly capture.

To attract fans of both fashion and professional football, the NFL launched a landmark advertising campaign to promote its revamped women’s apparel line for the 2012 season. Anchored by the tagline, “It’s My Team,” the campaign features 20 notable women wearing NFL and designer apparel. The diverse group of participants includes former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, socialite and jewelry designer Melania Trump, Olympic tennis champion Serena Williams, D.J. Kiss, and Dancing with the Stars' Kym Johnson and Peta Murgatroyd.

The NFL's "It's My Team" Campaign

There's a lot to love about this campaign: it's about real women who are real fans getting to express their competitive spirit through their personal style. This isn't about glitz and glam - it's about giving women a choice and a voice when it comes to cheering on their favorite team. Thanks to the NFL, what women want is finally getting noticed.

Take a look at some pictures from the NFL's "It's My Team" campaign and photo shoot:
