The University of Southern Mississippi and adidas begin a new multi-year partnership today in which the Portland, Ore., based company will be the official athletic footwear, apparel and accessory brand of the Golden Eagles through the 2024-2025 season.
"Our Department Leadership Team was focused and deliberate in our assessment and evaluation of potential vendors. We interviewed an array of companies to find the best fit for the University of Southern Mississippi. In the end, we found adidas to be the best partner for our Department. Our comprehensive agreement will provide the highest quality look and feel - for the highest levels of athletic competition. We are excited to make adidas products available to our Student-Athletes and have their iconic brand across our Department," said Jon Gilbert, Director of Athletics at University of Southern Mississippi when the deal was announced last October.
With the new all-school deal, adidas will supply the Golden Eagles with headwear, apparel, footwear and accessory needs for all of their athletic teams.
