History of the Under Armour HOVR SLK

In 1996, Kevin Plank, a young former special teams soccer captain, founded Under Armour in his grandmother’s basement. He traveled around the East Coast often, selling apparel from the trunk of his car. Plank got the idea for his business when, as an athlete, he got tired of having to change his sweat-drenched t-shirts which he had to wear underneath his jerseys.
