Just Do It In Purple
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.
