St. Ambrose University Athletic Director Ray Shovlain announced today that the Athletic Department has signed a contract with BSN SPORTS to have Nike equip the majority of Fighting Bee athletic programs.

The St. Ambrose Athletic Department and individual teams will begin transitioning to Nike uniforms, apparel and footwear this fall. 

"We are excited to partner with BSN SPORTS to become a Nike Team," Shovlain said. "We value this partnership and look forward to great days ahead with Nike."

As part of the contract, the agreement also provides facility branding. Online team shops will open soon, allowing fans to purchase official St. Ambrose Nike team gear and apparel.

BSN SPORTS is also providing an Athlete of the Month award plaque to recognize one male and one female SAU student-athlete each month of the academic year.

"The partnership agreement between St. Ambrose University, BSN SPORTS and Nike is a great example of the value of athletics in a school system. This strategic partnership offers us the opportunity to outfit the athletic teams in the finest apparel and products and bring best-in-class service to all categories of play," said Terry Babilla, BSN SPORTS President. "We are proud to be their partner and pleased that we can elevate the student-athlete experience, on the field or court and in the community."
