Sydney FC has secured a groundbreaking deal to become the first professional sports club in Australia to wear kit designed by American apparel company, Under Armour.
Under Armour, who are represented by the likes of Liverpool and England full-back Trent Alexander-Arnold, NBA superstar Steph Curry and six-time Superbowl winning quarterback Tom Brady, will produce all official Sydney FC playing kits and off-field products for the next four seasons.
Sydney FC Chief Executive Officer, Danny Townsend, welcomed the historic partnership.
“This deal unites two high-performing, ambitious brands who will challenge the Australian sports market and always aspire to be the best,” he said.
“We are excited to be working together on innovative designs for our club’s members as well as driving our players towards optimum on-field performance.”
A custom-designed on-field playing range will be released for the first time in the club’s history in the coming weeks, complemented with an innovative off-field range.
Sydney FC’s Under Armour athletes Milos Ninkovic and Chloe Logarzo expressed excitement at the announcement.
“Under Armour’s sportswear and training gear is unbelievable and it definitely gives us the edge in training,” Ninkovic said.
“With their help, we can challenge ourselves further this season and set new records in our domestic and AFC Champions League campaigns.”
“They have some of the most innovative and state of the art products on the market and I can’t wait to see the designs of the new Sydney FC kit.”
The official jersey will be unveiled on July 24th and will be available for purchase at Sydney FC Club Shop and www.underarmour.com.au, and Rebel Sport stores.
