(Neb.)- Nebraska Regents OK $128 Million, 11-Year Deal With Adidas

By: Jeremy Anderson Posted at: 08/11/2017 01:41 PM
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Adidas and Nebraska have agreed to a new sponsorship deal that will funnel more than $128 million in cash and goods to the athletic department over the next 11 years.
 
The university's Board of Regents on Friday unanimously approved the contract extension. Adidas will pay $64 million in cash and provide $64.7 million in apparel and equipment.
 
A 2015 agreement was to run through next June, but the deal approved Friday begins immediately. That means Adidas will pay $3.5 million in cash in 2017-18 instead of the $1 million promised under the previous agreement.
 
In return, Adidas receives major signage and other recognition from Nebraska.
 
Adidas has been Nebraska's apparel sponsor since 1995.
