Under Armour has added another member to its team: pro tennis player
Under the terms of the four-year deal, Murray, currently the number-six
ranked player, will wear Under Armour apparel, footwear, and accessories
and be featured in marketing campaigns. He will also participate in
global training and tennis activations, and make appearances for the
activewear brand beginning in January.
“Signing Andy is really a special moment for the brand, as we continue
to elevate and diversify our athlete roster and expand our international
presence,” said Ryan Kuehl, Under Armour’s senior category director of
global golf and tennis. “Andy’s remarkable character, competitive spirit
and unmatched ability make him the perfect fit for our family.”
In July 2013, Murray became the first British male in 77 years to win
the Wimbledon Championships in London. He is also the 2012 U.S. Open
Champion and won a gold medal in the 2012 Summer Games.
