SEATTLE- Monday, the University of Washington athletics announced that it would be teaming up with Adidas as their apparel provider. Monday was the first day of a 10-year program the university signed with the clothing brand.
The launch program unveiled new footwear, timelines for updated uniforms reveals and a launch party at Husky Harbor in conjunction with the USC game on Sept. 28.
The decision to leave Nike for Adidas was made way back in April of last year. The Huskies finished a 20-year contract with Nike this last season and Adidas swooped in, offering the university a 10-year contract that’s worth roughly $120 million. The contract is one of the most lucrative branding contracts in college athletics.
The uniforms for the fall sports teams will be announced one sport at a time over the course of the next couple of months.
