The Tennessee State University Department of Athletics has announced a new multi-year agreement with Nike through BSN Sports beginning with the 2019/20 season.
“I am very pleased to have TSU Athletics in a new partnership with BSN/Nike for the provider of equipment and apparel for our sports programs,” said Director of Athletics Teresa Phillips. “We had enjoyed a good relationship for a decade with another major player in sports apparel and simply sought to discover what brand would be best for our student-athletes moving forward. We feel that the Nike brand will bring a superior branding opportunity for our programs and the university community at large. Our entire staff is working feverishly to get our teams ready to represent the swoosh this fall. We can’t wait for our alumni and supporters to be a part of this awesome new look.”
The agreement between TSU and BSN Sports is for five years and makes Nike the official athletic apparel, footwear, accessory and equipment brand for all 15 Big Blue programs.
Todd Northrop, Collegiate Select Senior Vice President added, “We are looking forward to partnering with Tennessee State University and Nike in providing the finest apparel and athletic products. This agreement affirms our highest aspirations for BSN’s Collegiate Select program: delivering elite, customized products and services to our college customers. We are excited to partner with Tigers to elevate the performance and impact of their tradition-rich and growing athletic program. Additionally, we can’t wait to get to know all of the coaches associated with this great program and work tirelessly to put time back into their day so they can spend more time impacting lives on the field of play.”
