All 15 NCAA Division I athletic programs at the University of Texas at Arlington will be sporting Under Armour beginning July 1, 2018.
That's because UTA and Learfield have agreed to a 7-year contract with global apparel manufacturer Under Armour for the brand to serve as the official clothing, footwear and equipment supplier, according to a school-released statement on Tuesday.
"We are proud to associate UTA athletics with Under Armour, a company that has developed a reputation based on innovation and high performance," UTA's Director of Athletics Jim Baker said in the statement. "This relationship presents a great opportunity to expand the resources available for each of our teams. It also provides dynamic, high quality apparel, footwear and equipment that emphasize our commitment to student-athlete competitive success."
Beginning this fall, Mavericks baseball, men's and women's basketball, men's and women's golf, softball, men's and women's tennis, men's and women's cross country/track and field, and volleyball programs will exclusively wear Under Armour for all training and game day uniforms.
The school currently wears Adidas as part of a deal that began with the 2012-13 athletic season.
Under Armour is officially endorsed by top professional athletes such as Tom Brady, Stephen Curry, Bryce Harper, Clayton Kershaw, Cam Newton, Jordan Spieth, Lindsey Vonn, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and many others. UTA joins Under Armour's growing roster of NCAA Division I partners, which includes Auburn, Boston College, California, Maryland, Northwestern, Notre Dame, South Carolina, UCLA and Wisconsin.
The Mavericks will become Under Armour's fifth Division I school in Texas, along with Texas Tech, Houston Baptist, Stephen F. Austin and Texas Southern.
Official public unveilings of UTA team uniforms, apparel and equipment will take place periodically beginning this summer.
