Wichita State signs on with Under Armour

Wichita State has partnered with Under Armour, the university announced Monday.

Under the agreement, Under Armour will provide equipment for 15 varsity sports. University officials reported that the agreement will include baseball, women’s basketball and golf in 2017-18. Men’s basketball, cross country, track in 2018-19. Women’s tennis will join in 2019, volleyball and softball will join in 2020-21.

The addition of Wichita State increases Under Armour’s roster of NCAA partners to more than 15 Division-I schools.
