BATON ROUGE - TeamFanShop, LSU Athletics' official e-commerce partner, issued the following statement after images of Alabama merchandise mistakenly appeared on www.LSUshop.net during overnight hours on Monday.
TeamFanShop, which provides the official online stores for both LSU and Alabama, operates more than 250 e-commerce websites and 60 stores for collegiate and professional sports partners and media organizations.
"Early this morning, LSU fans may have noticed that part of LSU's official online store mistakenly displayed the Alabama Crimson Tide online store," stated Brian Swallow, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for TeamFanShop.
"This was the result of human error by a designer and was not the result of a hack by any outside party. At no time was customer information compromised. This error has since been fixed and the LSU Athletics official online store, www.LSUshop.net, is now being displayed properly. We apologize for the inconvenience, appreciate your patience, and look forward to the BCS Championship Game on January 9."
TeamFanShop has partnered with LSU Athletics since 2005.
