Under Armour has become the official athletic footwear, apparel and accessory brand of the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV) in a collaboration with BSN Sports.
Under Armour will provide UTRGV’s 16 sports programs with training gear for competition, practice and community appearances while also outfitting coaches and the athletic department staff. The school’s contract with Adidas expired this summer.
“UTRGV Athletics is proud to announce our partnership and alignment with Under Armour and BSN. Recently, Under Armour has made a significant impact during the COVID-19 pandemic by supporting hunger relief efforts, making masks to support healthcare professionals, and inspiring us with their new tagline, ‘the only way is through,’” said Chasse Conque, UTRGV vice president and director of athletics. “We are proud to not only partner with Under Armour, but join an impressive group of NCAA Division I programs aligned with the Under Armour brand. We are confident this partnership will serve our student-athletes well and we look forward to being part of the Under Armour family for many years to come.”
BSN will service the contract.
“We couldn’t be more excited to partner with UTRGV and to get to know everyone associated with this great athletic department,” said Terry Babilla, president of BSN Sports. “Our mission is to help coaches and administrators off the field or court so they can spend more time impacting lives on it, so our work starts today. We’re looking forward to the partnership. Go, Vaqueros!”
