RIO GRANDE VALLEY – The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV) Department of Intercollegiate Athletics announced on Monday a new five-year partnership agreement with BSN SPORTS to make Under Armour the official athletic footwear, apparel and accessory brand of the Vaqueros.
Under Armour, a leader in performance footwear, apparel, and equipment, will provide UTRGV’s 16 sport programs with training gear for competition, practice and community appearances while also outfitting the coaches and athletic department staff.
“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,'” UTRGV Vice President and Director of Athletics Chasse Conque said. “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.”
Under Armour’s vision is to inspire you with performance solutions you never knew you needed and can’t imagine living without. Founded in 1996, Under Armour has more than 270 million connected fitness community members and 14,000 teammates worldwide. Under Amour is sold in more than 100 countries with more than 375 brand & factory houses and 41 offices.
BSN is a leading marketer, manufacturer and distributor of sporting goods, apparel and equipment. They remove the hassles related to purchasing uniforms, equipment, spirit wear and anything else athletic program need, giving programs more time to impact lives in competition and in the community. BSN has over 1,200 sales professionals who live and work in the communities they serve, including the Rio Grande Valley.
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, the 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!”
