Our History

College Licensee List
  • Colosseum Athletics is a privately owned collegiate apparel manufacturer holding over 400 licensing agreements with colleges and universities across the nation. Ranked as the 4th largest collegiate apparel company in the US, Colosseum Athletics has become a name brand and industry leader.

    ORIGINS & HISTORY: Established in 1992, Colosseum Athletics began as a cap company by founder and CEO, Stuart Whang. After experiencing rapid growth in the headwear capacity, Whang was able to secure more licensing agreements and Colosseum expanded to manufacturing jerseys, sweatshirts and other collegiate paraphernalia.

    EARLY HISTORY: As a former USC student with an entrepreneurial spirit, Stuart Whang assessed market trends and began designing hats to supply the collegiate and NFL product demand. With access to overseas manufacturing through his family’s manufacturing business, the success of his small business boomed through the 1990’s. In the early 2000’s, licensing restrictions began to increase in the collegiate and professional sports markets. Colosseum then went on to produce replica jerseys by again reacting quickly to market trends.

    PRESENT DAY: Presently, Colosseum Athletics designs a full apparel line, including Men’s, Women’s, Youth, Girls, Toddler, and Infant. With a leading design team integrating each season’s latest trends into the collegiate apparel line, Colosseum sets the standard in quality, value and aesthetics amongst the leading collegiate apparel manufacturers.


    At Colosseum Athletics we realize that our sourcing decisions have a social impact in factories around the globe. Along with meeting our customer’s expectations, we are also active in improving working conditions for hundreds of workers wherever Colosseum products are made. We feel responsible for the well-being of workers finishing our products and are committed to improving their quality of life.

    As a member of the Fair Labor Association, we have adopted the Workplace Code of Conduct which is visibly posted in all factories where Colosseum products are made.


    STANDARDS: CAC suppliers and their contractors must operate workplaces that adhere to the following minimum standards and practices.  In addition, CAC suppliers and their contractors must comply, at a minimum, with all applicable legal requirements of the country in which products are manufactured.  Where this Code and the applicable laws of the country of manufacture conflict or differ, the higher standard shall prevail.

    EMPLOYMENT RELATIONSHIP:  Employers shall adopt and adhere to rules and conditions of employment that respect workers and, at a minimum, safeguard their rights under national and international labor and social security laws and regulations.

    NONDISCRIMINATION:  No person shall be subject to any discrimination in employment, including hiring, compensation, advancement, discipline, termination or retirement, on the basis of gender, race, religion, age, disability, sexual orientation, nationality, political opinion, social group or ethnic origin.

    HARASSMENT OR ABUSE:  Every employee shall be treated with respect and dignity.  No employee shall be subject to any physical, sexual, psychological or verbal harassment or abuse.

    FORCED LABOR:  There shall be no use of forced labor, including prison labor, indentured labor, bonded labor or other forms of forced labor.

    CHILD LABOR:  No person shall be employed under the age of 15 or under the age for completion of compulsory education, whichever is higher.

    FREEDOM OF ASSOCIATION AND COLLECTIVE BARGAINING:  Employers shall recognize and respect the right of employees to freedom of association and collective bargaining.

    HEALTH, SAFETY, AND ENVIRONMENT:  Employers shall provide a safe and healthy workplace setting to prevent accidents and injury to health arising out of, linked with, or occurring in the course of work or as a result of the operation of employers’ facilities. Employers shall adopt responsible measures to mitigate negative impacts that the workplace has on the environment.

    HOURS OF WORK:  Employers shall not require workers to work more than the regular and overtime hours allowed by the law of the country where the workers are employed. The regular work week shall not exceed 48 hours.  Employers shall allow workers at least 24 consecutive hours of rest in every seven-day period.  All overtime work shall be consensual.  Employers shall not request overtime on a regular basis and shall compensate all overtime work at a premium rate.  Other than in exceptional circumstances, the sum of regular and overtime hours in a week shall not exceed 60 hours.

    COMPENSATION:  Every worker has a right to compensation for a regular work week that is sufficient to meet the worker’s basic needs and provide some discretionary income. Employers shall pay at least the minimum wage or the appropriate prevailing wage, whichever is higher, comply with all legal requirements on wages, and provide any fringe benefits required by law or contract. Where compensation does not meet workers’ basic needs and provide some discretionary income, each employer shall work with the FLA to take appropriate actions that seek to progressively realize a level of compensation that does.

    Employee Safety/Rights Violation Claims
