Nike and the NFL have agreed to a $3.5 billion deal that would combine the two sports brands into one.
The deal, announced Tuesday, would make Nike the NFLs primary labor supplier for NFL teams.
The deal also includes the NFL players union and the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Local 516.
The new partnership will include a number of other sports brands.
The terms of the deal weren’t disclosed.
Nike and the NBA were also expected to announce their next major sponsorship deal, a $10 million deal with the University of Michigan, the Associated Press reported.
The NFL will pay for the construction of more than 4,500 Nike shoes for the 2017-2018 season, a spokeswoman said.
The contract with Nike is part of a broader agreement between the NFL and labor.
In May, Nike agreed to buy the Los Angeles Chargers’ team uniforms.
Nike also announced a partnership with the Los Angels Angels of Anaheim to bring professional sports to Mexico.
