This September, Benedictine University announced a ten-year partnership agreement with Eastbay to supply apparel, footwear, equipment and athletic accessories to all the university’s intercollegiate sports.

“We are excited for the opportunities this partnership with Eastbay will bring,” said Benedictine University’s Chief Engagement Officer Mark McHorney. “This partnership will strengthen our brand while also creating an investment in our student-athlete experience.”

Both Benedictine University and Eastbay felt that the partnership was a unique opportunity that extends beyond premier product offerings. It was a chance to build a long-lasting relationship that will benefit not only the university’s athletic department, but the entire campus and the surrounding community over the next decade.

“During our process to determine the best partner for our institution, it became obvious that the leadership at Eastbay wanted us as a part of their team,” McHorney said.

Eastbay was founded in 1980 and is a leading provider of athletic footwear, apparel, and equipment worldwide, offering the industry’s top brands, as well as the exclusive Eastbay brand of products. Eastbay was purchased by Footlocker in 1997. For more information, visit or call for team pricing at 1-800-841-5748.
