Bass Champs announced that UNDER ARMOUR has signed a two year deal with the Texas based organization Bass Champs Tournament Trail, and is now the official apparel and footwear of the popular fishing circuit and television show.
"Under Armour provides apparel for every type of weather that our anglers face. Texas anglers have to battle extreme weather conditions during the tournament season and Under Armour has clothing that provides comfort and durability better than any other brand on the market." said Chad Potts, President of Bass Champs, Inc. "In addition to the best apparel on the market, anglers can now cash in with the new Under Armour Big Bass Bonus. The bonus is available at every Bass Champs team event. If the team that wins big bass of the event is wearing any Under Armour apparel or footwear as they cross the Bass Champs stage, they will receive an additional $200."
Under Armour is the originator of performance apparel - gear engineered to keep athletes cool, dry and light throughout the course of a workout, on the water or in the woods. The technology behind Under Armour's diverse product assortment for men, women and youth is complex, but the program for reaping the benefits is simple: wear HeatGear when it's hot, ColdGear when it's cold, and AllSeasonGear between the extremes.
"We are very excited to announce the beginning of our new partnership with Bass Champs in 2013" stated Koby Fulks, Outdoor Marketing for Under Armour. "Bass Champs tournament anglers are dedicated outdoorsmen and have to contend with all types of weather conditions and at Under Armour we are dedicated to providing apparel solutions for every situation they are faced with, I think its the perfect fit."
