BOZEMAN, Mont. –Universal Athletic will remain the spot for Bobcat fans to find their favorite MSU apparel and merchandise, as UA and Montana State announced Friday an extension of their long-standing partnership.

The Bozeman-based retailer becomes Bobcat Athletics’ official on-line retail provider, offering a variety of branded merchandise consistent with Bobcat Athletics. All customer service and operations are anchored in the Bozeman market, serving all eCommerce demands.

“Expanding our corporate partnership with Bobcat Sports Properties is a natural fit given our relationship with Bobcat Athletics as the official supplier of UnderArmour team gear,” said Universal President Greg Miller. “Our team at Universal Athletic is excited for this opportunity.”

Montana State Director of Athletics Leon Costello echoed that idea. “We are excited to continue and expand our partnership with Universal Athletic,” he said. “This new partnership will allow our fans to shop an expanded product line of Bobcat merchandise on our online store while receiving great service.”

A regional sporting goods company servicing schools and colleges in 12 western states, Universal Athletic operates 10 retail locations, five sales offices and four regional distribution centers. Montana State’s relationship with UA is managed by Learfield’s Bobcat Sports Properties, MSU Athletics’ multimedia rights-holder.
