The University of Arkansas will enter into an all-sports apparel and footwear contract with Nike, beginning July, 2010. The Razorbacks’ existing deal with Adidas expires June 30, 2010.

Under the terms of the five-year contract, Nike will provide footwear and apparel for all 19 of Arkansas’ varsity programs.

“We are excited about our new partnership with Nike,” Jeff Long, athletic director for Arkansas, said in a statement. “We are proud to be included in the limited number of schools whose agreement encompasses all sports.”
