Just Do It In Pur­ple

Stanstead Journal - - SPORTS - Sher­brooke, Len­noxville

The Bishop’s Univer­sity Depart­ment of Ath­let­ics and Recre­ation is pleased to an­nounce an agree­ment that will see all of their var­sity and club teams don­ning the Nike swoosh be­gin­ning in Fall 2013.

The univer­sity en­tered into a part­ner­ship with T. Litzen Sports, the ex­clu­sive ser­vice provider of the Nike Team pro­gram. Nike Team/T. Litzen Sports and Bishop’s will now be cor­po­rate part­ners that will see Gaiters ap­parel avail­able in the cam­pus book­store with the trade­mark swoosh on it.

“This is a big step in the right di­rec­tion for our ath­letic depart­ment,” said Brian Breck­les, Di­rec­tor of Ath­let­ics and Recre­ation at Bishop’s. “Nike has pre­sented us with prod­ucts that put a proud em­pha­sis on Bishop’s pur­ple. The agree­ment as­so­ciates the Gaiters with one of the world’s most well-known brands – one that ev­ery­one wants to wear.”

Fi­nan­cial terms of the multi-year deal were not re­leased; how­ever Breck­les added that some­thing of this mag­ni­tude was well thought out. “A great deal of con­sid­er­a­tion went into work­ing out this agree­ment. The process was a lengthy one but the ben­e­fits will be tremen­dous.”

“Team Litzen is ex­cited to have been se­lected by Bishop’s Univer­sity,” said Team Litzen’s Man­ager of Univer­sity and Col­lege, John Sut­ton. “With Nike’s fo­cus on un­der­stand­ing and meet­ing the needs of high per­for­mance ath­letes and the Gaiters sin­gle minded ap­proach to build­ing great teams, I am con­fi­dent we have the nu­cleus for a win­ning part­ner­ship.”

Nike is the world’s lead­ing de­signer, mar­keter and dis­trib­u­tor of au­then­tic ath­letic footwear, ap­parel, equip­ment and ac­ces­sories.

Based in Dun­das, On­tario, T.Litzen Sports is a Cana­dian leader in ath­let­ics sup­ply and the only Nike Team dealer in the coun­try, fea­tur­ing in­ter­na­tional NTS sta­tus for the stock­ing and pro­vid­ing of the Nike Team line prod­ucts.

Look for Nike ap­parel in the Gaiters colours on the Bishop’s book­store racks start­ing in Fall 2013.
