Panthers Choose Nike

Recently the Greenville College Football program has signed an agreement with Lids Team Sports to allow Nike to be their exclusive outfitter. This means that all new uniforms, cleats and clothing worn by the team will be made by Nike. This is the first exclusive contract signed by the program. In years past Greenville had used many other brands depending on the product.

This new deal will also allow fans to purchase official Greenville College Football gear on-line. From now until May 15th fans can follow the instructions here to be the first to get their gear. Current players and recruits should note this is NOT the camp pack and that information will be sent out in May.

Head Coach Ordell Walker said about the agreement, " I am very excited about this partnership. We want to have our brand represented all over the country. This partnership with Nike and Lids will help make that a reality."
