We Must Protect This House
In 2008, the University of Maryland Department of Athletics and Under Armour, Inc. announced that the Baltimore-based leader in performance apparel and footwear would become the exclusive official outfitter of Maryland Athletics effective January 1, 2009. The long-term agreement gives Under Armour the right to provide uniforms, apparel and footwear to each of the Terps' 20 varsity sports.
Under Armour's commitment and ability to provide the best quality apparel and footwear to our student-athletes is unmatched, as are the benefits that come with being aligned with a brand as strong as Under Armour, the creative marketing strength and support that Under Armour provides to Terrapin Athletics, and the unique product research and development opportunities that Under Armour provides our coaches, teams, and student-athletes.
"The University of Maryland is a perfect match for the Under Armour brand with a rich heritage in performance and undeniable spirit to be the best," said Kevin Plank, Under Armour Chairman and CEO.
Plank founded Under Armour after playing college football as a special teams captain for the University of Maryland football team. He earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from Maryland and is a member of the Board of Trustees of the University of Maryland College Park Foundation.
