The Argentinian basketball team, known for its determination, team spirit and style of play, gained international recognition after beating the USA in 2002. Two years later, the team won gold in Athens, starting a 15 years run that is the most decorated period in the Confederación Argentina de Básquetbol’s history.
“As Jordan Brand grows across the world, we look to partner with teams that represent Michael’s spirit of competitiveness and pursuit of greatness,” says Larry Miller, President of Jordan Brand. “We believe the Argentine national basketball team embodies those qualities, and together we look forward to connecting with the world-renowned Argentinian sport culture and serving players and fans with the best of Jordan.”
Federico Susbielles, President of the Confederación Argentina de Básquetbol (CABB) adds: “We are very proud to partner with Jordan Brand and its standard of greatness. We understand that this means respect for our history, recognition of our present and a commitment to the future of the CABB. We will do our very best to live up to the challenge.”
The official CABB uniforms will be available August 9 in Argentina stores.
