The deal represents the first time that Fortnite’s creator, carefully held Epic Games Inc., has struck a deal to place out articles in the game. The every-man-for-himself shooting title has been a runaway hit, garnering over 125 million players worldwide — a fan base that includes many athletes.

Besides the jerseys, other product — such as football-themed dances — will also be accessible. Since Fortnite is absolutely free to playwith, Epic has had to look for decorative items to sell. Other game makers, such as Activision Blizzard Inc. and Zynga Inc., are selling advertising places in their free titles.

Last month, Epic increased $1.25 billion in an investor group that comprised KKR & Co., Vulcan Capital and Kleiner Perkins.
