BOISE, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) Boise State and Nike agree to a six–year partnership. The deal worth more than $2 million dollars per year, runs through the 2024–25 season.
According to the university's athletic department, the deal almost doubles what the Broncos received in the previous contract with Nike.
Over the course of the six–year extension, the total value of the contract is 12.1 million dollars, including cash compensation and product for each of Boise state's 20 varsity programs.
BSU Football has partnered with Nike since 2003, and Boise State Athletics entered into its first all–sport agreement with the brand in 2011.
The agreement is pending approval from the Idaho State Board of Education.
“When you think elite in the world of sports and apparel, Nike is at the top of the list,” Boise State football coach Bryan Harsin said. “We couldn’t be more fired up as a program to be outfitted by and affiliated with a brand as powerful as Nike. There is no doubt they make us better with the latest equipment technology, style and from a recruiting standpoint.”
Nike and Boise State Athletics share many of the same values,” Bronco men’s basketball head coach Leon Rice said. “Our primary objective is to serve our student-athletes, build on our successes and win as a team. I am very much looking forward to our future collaborations with Nike. Being a ‘Nike School’ makes a difference!”
”What this really equates to is putting our student-athletes first,” Boise State women’s basketball head coach Gordy Presnell said. “Nike is pressure-tested in competition, and it was important to us – all of us – that we continue working with a company that cares about our student-athletes as much as we do.”
