On Tuesday, Appalachian State announced a new Nike deal that runs through 2022. The new deal will include all 20 App State sports and includes $100,000 toward App State, five times the $20,000 that the previous deal brought it.
New Nike contract with #AppState runs til 5/31/22. Old deal provided $20k in apparel; new provides $100k worth this year with $5k increases.— Brant Wilkerson-New (@BrantWSJ) July 28, 2015
App State has been Nike since 2007. The first game with Nike football uniforms was Michigan and I bet Phil Knight liked seeing his logo on the cover of Sports Illustrated.
On Wednesday, App State Equipment announced an all-gold uniform look.
The school boasts that there are 21 uniform combinations now, including three logos on the matte black helmet. The black Block A, the stars and stripes Block A which will be worn on Thursday, November 5th versus Arkansas State, and a gold Victory Yosef.
A look at the 2015 App State schedule poster might reveal what games certain jerseys will be worn in. Despite App State saying it's up in the air, the poster has gold Block A's next to the September 5th game vs Howard and the Halloween game vs Troy.
