Global Sports News-4

The Australian National Basketball League club competition has extended its partnership with US sportswear manufacturer Mitchell & Ness.

The new two-year deal covers the 2017-18 and 2018-19 NBL seasons, with Mitchell & Ness to retain its position as the league’s official on-court and off-court apparel partner.

The NBL will celebrate its Heritage Round this weekend, with all teams to wear jerseys from a significant year in their history. Mitchell & Ness has created the limited-edition jerseys.

Mitchell & Ness produced headwear and caps for the NBL during the 2015-16 season before becoming the league’s official apparel partner last April. The company also holds licences with North America’s NBA basketball, Major League Baseball, NFL American football and NHL ice hockey leagues to produce premium apparel and headwear.
