ULAC is developing a global licensing programme for Pro Player across all categories in men's, women's and children's sport and lifestyle apparel, accessories and hard goods, such as small exercise and sport equipment.

United Legwear and Apparel Co. designs, manufactures, markets, and distributes legwear, bodywear, apparel, and accessories to retailers.

Pro Player apparel has been worn by sports fans who associated the brand with officially licensed team gear, particularly jackets, across all big four sports.
