Nike and UCLA Athletics have announced a new partnership deal that will make the Jordan brand and Nike the Bruins’ official athletic footwear, apparel and equipment provider beginning on July 1, 2021. The financial details of the agreement were not disclosed, although reports in the Baltimore Business Journal suggest that Los Angeles university will receive $7 million to $10 million worth of products annually. Under the terms of the new six-year agreement, Nike will supply uniforms, apparel, footwear and equipment to 22 of UCLA’s 25 varsity athletic teams, while Nike’s Jordan brand will outfit the football and men’s and women’s basketball programs. The contract will make UCLA only the fifth university in the U.S. to partner with the Jordan brand on American football. Officially-licensed UCLA x Nike gear and UCLA x Jordan gear will hit retail in autumn 2021. As part of the agreement, Nike will also support UCLA Athletics’ student-athlete development programs, host a group of selected UCLA students at its headquarters for an educational experience every year, and offer two summer internships per year to UCLA students. Nike will replace Under Armour, which announced in June that it would terminate its original 15-year, $280 million sponsorship of the university. The contract with Under Armour, which is still the richest apparel sponsorship deal in college athletics to date, was signed in 2016 and was set to expire in 2032, but included a “force majeure” clause, which the brand used in connection with the coronavirus outbreak. A lawsuit is currently in progress between the two parties over the termination of that contract after UCLA filed a lawsuit against Under Armour in August for breach of contract, seeking damages for over $200 million. UCLA Athletics is a leading force in U.S. collegiate athletics, with 118 NCAA team championships won by 20 teams over the last 70 years and a rich Olympic tradition, which sees Bruin students and coaches boast 261 Olympic medals, 133 of which are gold medals.
