The Yomiuri Giants, Japan’s best-known baseball team, will be outfitted by Under Armour in 2015, under a new agreement. The multi-year apparel and accessories partnership was announced in
Tokyo by the team and Dome Corp., which is licensed to sell the
Baltimore-based company’s products in Japan.
According to the Baltimore Sun, the agreement cover game-day uniforms and training gear.
“The Yomiuri Giants are the most distinguished team in the Nippon Professional Baseball League,” said Dome CEO Shuichi Yasuda in a statement. “It’s an honor to have the opportunity to dedicate our passion for making athletes better into this game-changing partnership and design the most innovative uniforms on the field today.”
Under Armour scored a sponsorship coup in January when it added Notre Dame to the list of schools it outfits. It also sponsors the Premier League soccer team Tottenham Hotspur.
