The Hungry Jack’s National Basketball League (NBL) is pleased to announce that global performance brand Under Armour has extended its partnership with the league.
After a successful collaboration for the 2017/18 and 2018/19 NBL seasons, Under Armour will continue as both Supply Partner and Official Compression Partner for the 2019/20 season.
NBL Chief Commercial Officer Brad Joyner said: “We have been delighted with the first two seasons of the Under Armour partnership and are excited to grow the relationship.
“Under Armour is a premier producer of high-performance apparel and footwear and are becoming serious players in basketball, with Stephen Curry as their feature athlete and we are thrilled to be extending our partnership.
“There’s never been a better time to be part of the NBL and the exciting growth story that is Australian basketball. This season promises to be the biggest yet with a new team South East Melbourne and some big names joining the league.”
Under Armour is delighted to extend the partnership with NBL through the 2019/2020 season as the Official Compression Partner – such a great partnership, especially considering the direction the league is going. This enables Under Armour to equip the players with leading performance solutions, in line with our mission “to make you better”.
The NBL season tips off on Thursday October 3 with the inaugural ‘Throwdown’ between Melbourne United and South East Melbourne Phoenix at Melbourne Arena.
