Commenting on the new Fanatics tie-up, Justin Thomas said that he’s a massive sports fan and that he’s “looking forward to getting involved in the world of Fanatics and engaging with their customers.” He will appear in ads and promote the product on social media, as well as make appearances for the brand.
