Brian in Boston Posted February 6, 2004 Share Posted February 6, 2004 Arena Football has officially announced a three-year "national partnership" with Nike. Nike will serve as the AFL's official supplier in the Glove, Footwear and Performance Wear categories. No surprise with regard to the gloves and footwear, as Nike has been providing AFL teams with those items for at least a couple of seasons. However, the addition of a partnership in the Performance Wear category is obviously a boon for Nike as they attempt to build their compression garment business.What I found particularly interesting was a quote from Glenn Horine, the Arena Football League's Executive Vice President in charge of AFL Properties. Horine said, "This is another step forwrad in developing a world-class Arena Authentics program both on and off the field."So, how long before an AFL franchise is suiting up in a Nike-designed-and-manufactured uniform, bearing a Nike-developed logo?Brian in Boston Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
