Kevin Plank, Founder, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board of Under Armour, is the latest in a series of major signings for Leaders in Sponsorship being hosted at Chelsea FC, London on the 6th October 2010.


Under Armour is the originator of performance apparel which is engineered to keep athletes cool, dry and light throughout the course of a game, practice or workout.

The company is now a leading developer, marketer, and distributor of branded performance apparel, footwear and accessories, taking on the might of Nike and Adidas with a distinctive brand ethos and unique approach to sponsorship.
