HANNIBAL | Hannibal-LaGrange University announced it has signed a multi-year partnership with Nike through BSN Sports to make Nike the official apparel of HLGU athletics and BSN Sports the official equipment provider.

The partnership will begin on July 1, as part of BSN Sports Collegiate Select program.

HLGU Athletic Director Jason Nichols said the Trojans are proud to partner with BSN Sports and Nike.

“I'm confident this agreement will enhance the collegiate athletic experience for our coaches, student-athletes and the entire campus,” Nichols said. “We look forward to working with BSN in the days ahead. Their customer service, competitive prices and a wide arrange of products covering all of our sports is what brought HLGU Athletics to this decision.”

Nike will serve as the exclusive outfitter for all 15 HLGU varsity sports teams. The multi-year agreement includes numerous incentives in the form of discounts and rewards, along with incentives for on-field achievements, additional marketing and promotional opportunities.

BSN Sports Vice President of Collegiate Select Division Todd Northrup said BSN Sports is excited to partner with HLGU in elevating the performance and impact of their student-athletes.

“This strategic partnership will provide the finest apparel and athletic products to the entire community,” Northrup said. “Since our partnership with the NAIA took flight in 2019, we have been eager to work with this great university and help elevate their student, athlete and fan experiences any way we can. Our work starts today.”

With the partnership comes a new fan store that will be linked to HLGU athletic website at www.hlgtrojans.com. Once the store goes live, fans will be able to order customized Trojan apparel that will be delivered right to their door.
