Boise State, Nike Extend Apparel Deal Through '25 Season
Boise State athletics will "remain a Nike-affiliated program" through '25, as the school "will extend its current deal" for six years, according to Dave Southorn of the IDAHO STATESMAN. Nike will pay BSU $12.16M over the course of the deal, which is a 54% "increase over the current six-year contract and includes cash compensation and products for each of Boise State's 20 varsity programs." BSU and Nike previously agreed to a six-year extension in '13 that paid $7.9M in product "over the course of the deal." The new extension is the Mountain West Conference's "most lucrative." Three of the football-playing MWC schools "have deals with Adidas (Nevada, San Jose State and Wyoming), two are Under Armour (Colorado State and Hawaii), and the other seven have Nike contracts." BSU football "has been affiliated with Nike" since '03 (IDAHO STATESMAN, 6/13).
