Under Armour, the leading sports performance and innovation brand, will outfit all of the Naval Academy's 33 men's and women's varsity athletic teams beginning in the 2014-15 season.

"Under Armour is extremely proud to outfit the outstanding men and women who not only represent our home state of Maryland but also uphold the highest standards of the true student-athlete," said Matt Mirchin, Executive Vice President of Global Marketing, Under Armour. "The Naval Academy Athletic Association's commitment to brotherhood, tradition and values is on full display across its athletic teams, and we look forward to working with them to honor and advance the institution's rich legacy."

"We are very excited to partner with Under Armour, who continues to distinguish itself as a powerful advocate for the state of Maryland and for the nation's military as a whole," said Chet Gladchuk, Naval Academy's Director of Athletics.  "As the leader in sports performance and innovation, Under Armour will provide a great service to all of our student-athletes and will offer them a competitive advantage on the field of play."

This new affiliation further expands Under Armour's leadership in providing proven performance benefits to college athletes on all playing fields.  The Naval Academy Athletic Association marks the brand's twelfth Division 1 all-school partnership.
