The Florida Gators are shedding their Nikes and putting on Jordans in a big-time apparel switch at UF.
Jordan Brand announced a new partnership with Florida on Wednesday. Starting with the 2018-19 season, the Gator football team and the men’s and women’s basketball teams will wear uniforms featuring the Jumpman logo.
“The Florida Gators and Jordan Brand are two of the more iconic brands in athletics and we are looking forward to our partnership that will be enjoyed by the student-athletes of our football and basketball programs and our fans,” athletic director Scott Stricklin said.
Florida becomes the first SEC school to partner with Jordan Brand and the fourth collegiate football program (Michigan, North Carolina and Oklahoma) nationally to represent Jumpman.
Florida’s Jordan Brand merchandise will begin going on sale this summer.
