NFL Bans Beats By Dre Headphones

By  |  0 Comments

After a few years of prominent football players wearing Beats By Dre headphones on the field, the NFL has clapped back and decided to enforce a longstanding rule and will ban the headphones on their field if they are clearly seen.

Since the 1990s the league has prohibited any brands being exposed on the field and on-air without permission and since Beats By Dre headphones fall into that category, the rule will be enforced.  The NFL released the following statement:

“The NFL has longstanding policies that prohibit branded exposure on-field or during interviews unless authorized by the league. These policies date back to the early 1990s and continue today. They are the NFL’s policies — not one of the league’s sponsors, Bose in this case. Bose is not involved in the enforcement of our policies. This is true for others on-field.”

Whether or not this will effect the Beats business is unclear, but we at IndustryPlug believe that the billion-dollar company will be just fine.
