The first installment in a new line of officially licensed Belmont Bruins athletic gear is now available in local stores. The official Belmont sideline hat–‘The Z Hat’ from leading headwear manufacturer Zephyr–is in stock at Lids within Opry Mills shopping center. Opry Mills is located at 391 Opry Mills Drive in Nashville.
“This product launch is an exciting beginning to our new line of officially licensed Belmont Bruins’ merchandise,” Belmont Director of Athletics Mike Strickland said. “On the heels of two consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances in men’s basketball, and continued success across the board for Belmont Athletics, this venture is another step forward to meet growing interest and demand in our program.”
Future product lines are expected in coming weeks at Lids and Champs Sports stores, among others, in middle Tennessee. Belmont is client of Strategic Marketing Affiliates (SMA), an Indianapolis, Ind. based company which represents dozens of NCAA member institutions in licensing initiatives.
