Sportika and Under Armour Announce Exclusive Partnership
Manalapan, N.J. (April 23, 2018) – Sportika Sports and Under Armour announced an unprecedented partnership today that will extend over the next five years. One of the key elements will be a co-branding of Sportika’s 170,000 square-foot facility by Under Armour, while the company will also outfit all Sportika student-athletes, coaches and staff members.
“We are thankful to have the power of the Under Armour brand by our side as we grow into the future,” said Jeffrey L. Jordan, CEO of Sportika Sports. “In addition to wearing the finest and most recognized performance tested apparel, our student-athletes, coaches and families will also gain access to high-profile events and tournaments that will be promoted nationally and hosted exclusively at Sportika.”
Under Armour is a Baltimore-based enterprise that has grown to become a global leader in performance footwear, apparel and equipment. The company was founded in 1996 by former University of Maryland football player Kevin Plank, who was simply looking to design a compression shirt that properly combatted perspiration. The technology eventually expanded into other areas of apparel and now stands as one of the most recognized brands across athletics and sports performance.
“Under Armour is thrilled to partner with Sportika and align our brands to outfit the next generation of athletes,” said Brian Cummings, Vice President of North American Regional Sales at Under Armour. “We both share a strategic vision of making all athletes better, and we greatly look forward to this partnership.”
As a company, Under Armour has a stated mission to make all athletes better through passion, design and the relentless pursuit of innovation.
