BALTIMORE (WJZ) — As the coronavirus pandemic continues, Under Armour’s new face mask for athletes sold out in under an hour, the company’s CEO said.

The Baltimore-based fitness clothing company’s UA SPORTSMASK went up for sale Thursday morning. Customers quickly bought up the available stock.

On Twitter, CEO Patrik Frisk wrote they sold out in under an hour, adding more will be available in July.

The masks are available for pre-order for $30. A message on Under Armour’s website said they will ship on or before the end of July.
