Newman Athletics signs five-year apparel contract with Adidas


Newman University student-athletes are taking to the fields and courts wearing top-notch gear thanks to a five-year contract signed in June with athletic apparel company Adidas. Under the agreement, Adidas is providing exclusive apparel and footwear, including practice and travel gear, to all 16 Newman athletic teams.

“This is a great branding move for us, and will give our student-athletes high-quality apparel and footwear to wear as they represent our university,” Newman Athletic Director Vic Trilli said.

The agreement marks the first time Newman teams have been outfitted exclusively by one brand. Newman is now the only athletic program in the Heartland Conference with this type of exclusive agreement with Adidas.

Adidas is part of the Adidas Group, a global corporation that includes brands such as Reebok, TaylorMade and Rockport. Adidas is the official uniform, footwear and apparel provider for more than 70 U.S. collegiate programs.
