Nike, the US sportswear giant, has extended its partnership with England Netball, the sport’s domestic governing body, for a further three years.
The renewal will see Nike continue to supply training and playing apparel to the Vitality Roses national women’s team, the Roses Academy and the Performance team, as it has done since 2018. England Netball staff will also sport Nike training apparel.
The Vitality Roses will also continue to utilise Nike as a vehicle for team exposure, helping encourage young netballers to take up the sport.
Nike will remain alongside Jaffa, Sky Sport, Red Bull and Gilbert as partners to the UK organisation.
Last month, England Netball renewed its long-standing partnership with Vitality, the UK-based life insurance company, with the company to continue to hold the naming rights to the national team until 2023.
Fran Connolly, chief executive of England Netball, said: “Nike is a world leader in sport innovation and design, and we are thrilled to extend our partnership that will see our athletes continue to train and play in the very best performance apparel.
“But Nike are so much more than an apparel partner – they also share our vision to innovate the game and inspire women and girls through the power of sport and culture, connecting with audiences not just on the netball court but beyond the court to drive positive change and impact lives.”
