HAMPDEN-SYDNEY, VA – The Hampden-Sydney College Athletic Department today announced that it has entered into a five-year partnership with BSN SPORTS to make Nike the official uniform, apparel, and footwear provider. The agreement, which will commence in July 2018 is part of BSN SPORTS Collegiate Select program, which aims to make BSN a one-stop provider for all collegiate athletic, intramural, club and staff apparel and equipment to all D1, DII, D3 and NAIA schools.
The agreement includes numerous incentives in the form of discounts and rewards and additional marketing and promotional opportunities.
"Many of our teams already wear Nike and work with BSN Sports," said Director of Athletics Chad Eisele. "By partnering with NIKE and BSN, we are able to receive the best pricing available while providing our student-athletes with the gear they want to wear.
"Through this agreement, our student-athletes will be equipped in the top apparel whether it be in competition, on the practice field, or traveling," Eisele added.
