14 Sep NFL and Under Armour Expand NFL Scouting Combine Agreement
The NFL and Under Armour announced a multi-year extension of their NFL Scouting Combine agreement. Under the terms of the agreement, Under Armour will maintain exclusive rights as the NFL Scouting Combine’s official apparel outfitter and will introduce an expanded line of officially licensed Combine apparel for consumers.
Continuing its exclusive licensing arrangement with the NFL since 2009, Under Armour will outfit all NFL Scouting Combine participants in Under Armour performance apparel designed specifically for the event. Additionally, beginning in the 2016 season, Under Armour will have expanded rights to produce officially-licensed NFL team-specific Combine performance apparel, gloves and accessories for fans.
“We are excited to build on our long-standing partnership with the NFL and to further strengthen our presence as the official outfitter of the NFL Scouting Combine,” said Adam Peake, Under Armour’s Executive Vice President of Global Marketing. “The NFL Scouting Combine is the biggest moment of these young athletes’ lives, and it aligns with Under Armour’s mission to break new barriers in performance and innovation. We also have the ability to connect all fans to the Combine and to be an authentic partner in training through our new team-specific gear offerings.”
“The NFL is proud to expand our relationship with Under Armour and continue to build the NFL Scouting Combine,” said Christopher Halpin, NFL Senior Vice-President of Consumer Products. “Through our new agreement, we are jointly making investments to grow and enhance the Combine, while serving our fans through an expanded line of Combine apparel and accessories. Whether a potential first-round pick or a long-time NFL fan, everyone has fitness goals, and we want the Combine line to support the NFL community in achieving them.”
