Under Armour will supply University of Maryland teams for next decade

Under Armour will continue to supply uniforms to the University of Maryland's varsity teams under a 10-year extension deal announced Tuesday.

The Baltimore-based sports brand will continue to design and supply game-day uniforms as well as footwear, apparel and equipment for training for all men's and women's varsity teams.

"The University of Maryland is an integral part of Under Armour's history, culture and identity," Matt Mirchin, Under Armour's executive vice president of global marketing, said in the company's announcement.

Under Armour CEO and founder Kevin Plank, a former Maryland football player, has been a strong supporter of the student athletes and their programs, said Kevin Anderson, the university's athletic director.

"This decade-long agreement showcases Under Armour's unwavering commitment to the University of Maryland and our fans," he said. The university has 20 intercollegiate sport programs and more than 500 student-athletes.

The Terrapin football team will suit up in historically inspired uniforms for this weekend's game in honor of the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Baltimore at Fort McHenry and the Star Spangled Banner.

Under Armour is the official suppler to several NCAA programs including University of Notre Dame, the U.S. Naval Academy, Auburn University, Texas Tech University and the University of South Carolina.
