Florida A&M Athletics announced a six-year agreement with NIKE, to make the company the official athletic footwear, apparel, and equipment provider for the Rattlers.
"FAMU is an elite institution with a rich tradition of first, and our student-athletes deserve a student-athlete experience that is second to none. As we transition into a new athletic conference and the opportunity to engage apparel partners, the 23-year relationship with Nike and their commitment to culture, diversity, inclusion, and innovation has never been clearer," said Vice President and Director of Athletics, Kortne Gosha. "My executive team and I are focused on setting a new standard and our top priority is to align with the best quality and most innovative products, brands and resources that position our student-athletes and coaches to compete for championships. This partnership allowed us to reimagine, challenge the norms of our industry and be the model for leveling the playing field with the most significant investment in the American Jewels known as Historically Black Colleges and Universities by any footwear and apparel company."
The agreement will service the athletic department, all 14 sport programs and the Marching 100 band. NIKE will supply all team footwear, uniforms, apparel and equipment.
FAMU teams will be outfitted in LeBron James uniforms, apparel and footwear, including footwear designed specifically for the university.
