Florida and the iconic Jordan Brand, have entered into a business partnership beginning with the 2018 football season. The Gator uniforms will feature the familiar Jumpman logo, and Florida will become the first college program in the Southeastern Conference to join with Jordan Brand. It will be the fourth collegiate football program in America to represent them.
The rally will begin at 7 p.m. next Tuesday, at Atlanta’s World Congress Center, and is free to the public.
The Gators’ announcement coincides with next week’s SEC Media Days in Atlanta. Tuesday is the day Head Coach Dan Mullen and three football players take questions from the media, in the afternoon, followed by the evening rally.
Head Coach Mullen and other former Gators will be at the rally. Undoubtedly, Mullen will be sporting Jordan Brand athletic shoes. In the last several years, the Head Coach has adopted athletic shoes as his everyday footwear, even on formal occasions.
The three Gators who have been selected to attend SEC Media Days are OL Martez Ivey, DL Cece Jefferson, and LB David Reese.
In addition to the Gator football team, the men’s and women’s basketball teams are in the partnership. Those teams’ new Jordan Brand uniforms will be unveiled at a later date.
