Under Armour To Take Over MLB In 2020
Starting in 2020, MLB merchandise will be far from what we're all used to. MLB has reached an agreement with Under Armour and Fanatics to make them the league's official uniform partners.
Under Armour will take over for Majestic and Nike by making all of the on-field apparel and will feature their logo on the front of each team's uniform. Fanatics, one of the largest sports retailers, will make the merchandise that will be sold to fans. The deal is for 10 years, but could start earlier should Majestic bow out of their current deal.
Under Armour currently has deals with MLB star's Bryce Harper, Buster Posey, and Clayton Kershaw. This is Under Armour's first league apparel deal after they fell short in the bidding for the NBA which was won by Nike and will begin next year.
New Era will continue to make the hats for the league.
