It's not enough that Florida State is easily the best program in the state of Florida right now, but the Seminoles also have the most lucrative apparel contract in the state. The Noles are making $4.2 million off their deal with Nike with $2.8 million of it coming off gear given out alone. Things like gloves, cleats, backpacks, jerseys, workout gear and other apparel are all apart of that.*
Nike has been the apparel provider and designer for FSU since 1998. Winning national titles keeps Nike right at FSU's side and the relationship has been quite beneficial for both parties. So much so that now the Noles have the highest contract with Nike or any other apparel provider in the state of Florida.
Here's what the other teams in the state of Florida are making off their apparel deals:
University of Florida (Nike) $3.2 million
USF (Under Armour) $3 million
FIU (Adidas) $373,000
FAU (Adidas) $295,000
