With the announcement, Old Dominion becomes the first Conference USA school to partner with Under Armour.
"We are thrilled to be one of Under Armour's newest intercollegiate athletic partners. Under Armour is a rapidly growing brand known for its cutting edge innovation, creative and bold design, and high quality performance standards. They are a product and a brand that is sought after by highly skilled and talented athletes worldwide," said ODU Director of Athletics Wood Selig.
"The visibility of FBS football, our recent Top 25 ranking in men's basketball and CUSA's extensive TV partnerships with nationwide coverage provides a platform for our University and athletic department to elevate itself. We value this opportunity to partner with Under Armour to further amplify our athletic programs," Selig added.
The Monarch football team will compete in Under Armour uniforms and footwear for the first time at its opening game on Sept. 5, at Eastern Michigan.
"Under Armour is excited to add Old Dominion University to our growing roster of NCAA partners," said Nick Carparelli, senior director of college sports at Under Armour. "We look forward to providing best-in-class, innovative products to their student-athletes and athletic department as they continue to drive for success."
In addition to ODU, Under Armour has partnerships with schools such as the University of Maryland, Notre Dame, Auburn, South Carolina, U.S. Naval Academy, Northwestern, Boston College and Texas Tech.
