Under Armour has added another athlete to its roster.
Memphis Depay, a winger for PSV Eindhoven, a soccer team from the Netherlands, and the leading scorer in the Dutch Eredivisie, has signed a multi-year deal with the brand.
“On and off the pitch I’m always ready for the next chapter in my life,” said Depay. “I wanted Under Armour in my corner because they will help me elevate my game until I reach my dreams. I’m going to help Under Armour bring the impact they’ve had in American football, basketball and sport performance to the football pitch.”
The 21-year-old was a star in last summer’s World Cup, where he was the youngest Dutch player to score in the tournament.
“Memphis is one of the world’s best young footballers and is a great addition to our brand’s elite athlete roster,” said Peter Murray, vice president of global brand and sports marketing for Under Armour. “His star continues to rise and we’re excited to help him reach new heights with our innovative footwear, apparel and digital training tools. He’s only 21, but has proven that his explosive and fast style of play combined with his unrelenting will to be great gives him the potential to be a game-changer.”
Starting March 1, Depay will wear a soon-to-be-released Under Armour soccer boot in all matches and training. He will also be featured in the brand’s global marketing initiatives.
Other athletes on the Under Armour roster include 2013 Wimbledon Champion Andy Murray, NBA All-Star Stephen Curry, Super Bowl MVP Tom Brady and the skier Lindsey Vonn.
