PBA Announced Multi-Year Agreement with High 5 Gear

July 24, 2013

The Professional Bowlers’ Association (PBA) announced a new three-year deal with High 5 Gear, replacing Gemini Custom Apparel as the association’s official PBA Tour jersey manufacturer.

Wisconsin-based High 5 Gear will be the exclusive dye-sublimated jersey in the PBA competition, outfitting 50 of the PBA Tour’s top players and all eight teams. High 5 will also make replica jerseys available for fans to purchase allowing the group rights to display the logos of PBA product registered partners.

“High 5 Gear is thrilled to be the official jersey of the PBA,” said High 5 Gear President Todd Molbeck. “Bowling has always been the cornerstone of High 5 Gear’s success and we view our partnership with the PBA as the pinnacle of that success. We look forward to working with the PBA and continuing to fill a void in bowling that has long been ignored – cool bowling clothes.”

“High 5 is passionate about bowling and we look forward to continue to make the sport better through our partnership,” said PBA Commissioner Tom Clark. “We thank Gemini for the last five years being the official PBA jersey. Together, the PBA and Gemini changed the way professional bowling looks for the better with dye-sublimated jerseys, enhanced sponsor recognition and allowing players to express themselves through designs. With High 5 Gear, we will build on that foundation and get more bowlers of all skill levels around the world looking sharp.”

The agreement becomes effective immediately; however, both Gemini and High 5 jerseys will be permitted at the Lipton Bowling’s U.S. Open on 27 July which will be telecast on ESPN.
