Nike, Beaverton, Ore., and the National Women’s Soccer League recently extended their partnership through the 2019 season.

Nike will continue in its role as the league’s official uniform, apparel and equipment provider for the nine clubs and any future teams. The agreement also stipulates Nike has an option to collaborate on innovation initiatives in soccer technology and design.

“We are extremely proud to continue our partnership with the NWSL,” says Andrea Perez, North America GM of soccer for Nike. “This extension not only gives soccer fans more opportunities to see their favorite athletes in action, but it also reinforces Nike’s overall leadership in women’s soccer, helping to grow the women’s game beyond where it stands today.”

Nike has sponsored the league since 2012 and the U.S. Women’s National Team since 1995.

“This partnership with the NWSL demonstrates Nike’s commitment to the women’s game,” says U.S. Soccer President Sunil Gulati. “As the league grows, Nike’s continuing support will be instrumental in growing the women’s game domestically and globally.”
