CHARLESTON, S.C. – Charleston Southern Athletics has reached a multi-year deal that makes NIKE the official apparel and footwear provider for Buccaneer Athletics.
NIKE will provide game uniforms, warmups, athletic footwear and select equipment for all 16 of Charleston Southern's men's and women's varsity teams.
"Partnering with NIKE/BSN Sports to become our exclusive provider is an opportunity for Charleston Southern Athletics to broaden its relationship with one of the elite brands in sports," CSU Athletic Director Hank Small said. "The long-term deal shows a commitment to providing our student-athletes with the absolute best on the field and in practice."
The deal is the first department-wide contract of its type for CSU Athletics. CSU football, men's and women's basketball, and select other sports have existing commitments to NIKE and will continue exclusively with the No. 1 athletic brand.
"Moving to NIKE will benefit our entire athletic department," CSU Head Men's Basketball Coach Barclay Radebaugh said. "Partnering with a premium brand like Nike makes a statement that, as a University and a department, we are committed to winning championships. We're very excited to expand our basketball partnership with NIKE."
