Aug. 17, 2015

WASHINGTON – The George Washington University Department of Athletics announced today a three-year contract extension with Nike that assures GW's more than 450 student-athletes in 27 varsity sports of having the best and latest in high quality footwear, equipment and apparel. The worldwide leader in athletic apparel and footwear will remain the exclusive official outfitter of GW Athletics.

The agreement extends the initial deal inked in 2012 that was the first comprehensive apparel and footwear deal for George Washington, and gave Nike the right to provide uniforms, apparel and footwear to each of GW's varsity sports.

“The George Washington University Department of Athletics and Recreation and Nike have formed a strong, mutually beneficial partnership for years, and we’re proud to continue our relationship,” said GW Director of Athletics and Recreation Patrick Nero. “The swoosh makes an iconic statement, and our partnership allows us to continue to provide our student-athletes with the equipment, apparel and footwear resources necessary to perform at the highest levels.”

GW Athletics will continue to benefit from Nike’s top-of-the-line sports technology and have a variety of uniforms, shoes and warm-up and travel gear from which to choose. As the leading manufacturer of sports apparel and athletic shoes in the world, Nike sets the cutting edge of state-of-the art technology and design.
