We’ve joined forces with London’s Hammersmith FC, as The Official Kit Partner, to craft timeless jerseys that seamlessly blend the worlds of sport, music, and fashion. Launching home and away kits for the club’s men’s and women’s teams, with multi-platinum, chart-topping and award-winning Chase and Status as the proud Kit Sponsor. Together, we support grassroots trailblazers and celebrate both the men’s and women’s game.
The striking red home and blue away jerseys with luxurious gold detailing pay homage to the club’s identity, bold ambitions and vibrant community spirit. Whilst the seamless integration of Kappa's signature design style, marked by the repeated inclusion of the iconic Omini logo, not only introduces a refined touch of design finesse but also symbolises the club's unwavering commitment to sustaining remarkable back-to-back successes across their teams.
Chase and Status are deeply connected to Hammersmith in West London - Will (Status) having grown up there, and Saul (Chase) based nearby. They share a profound love for the beautiful game and the football community, viewing this collaboration as a means to inspire a new wave of inclusive football culture.
Will and Saul of Chase and Status share their excitement; “This partnership is a way for us to be able to support a grassroots football club whose accomplishments have been huge in its short journey so far, in particular on the women’s side. Aside from being huge football fans on a personal level, we have a history as a band of collaborating with the sport in quite a few different ways. From launching the official England kit back in 2011, and appearing on Soccer AM to performing at matches & on broadcasts. We wanted to build a deeper connection with the game in a meaningful way, in particular, the women's side - we both have young daughters, so it’s super important to us to be making sure we are empowering them by supporting inspirational females. As well as us having roots in West London, where Hammersmith FC are based, we’re inspired by not only their achievements so far, but also their club’s community-focused ethos, paired with their connection and passion for music.”
The remarkable ascent of Hammersmith FC, driven by Founders Akin and Tommy, sees consecutive league titles and promotions for both their men's and women's teams, adding a layer of pride and spirit to this collaboration.
Tommy Fish, Founder of Hammersmith FC expresses; “I’m over the moon about this partnership! It’s a game-changer to tell our story alongside these legends and heavyweights of the dance music scene. And to partner with Kappa, for me, the ultimate vintage football streetwear brand, couldn’t be more fitting. Our men and women have won back-to-back league titles for the last two seasons and their iconic logo is a man and woman sitting back-to-back. Music, football and fashion cross over so much. To be able to work with these guys to create kits and content, amplify our club’s successes, and grow together is a dreamland for us. The fact that they’re local lads and that they want to support grassroots, and in particular, women’s football, is a real credit to them. It also adds to the warm, community-centric culture that we’re proud to have built.”
Ben Barlow, Product and Brand Director at Kappa UK & Ireland conveys; “Kappa has a rich heritage of producing eye-catching kits that represent the club, players, and fans. The bespoke designs for this exciting partnership draw on Kappa’s traditional styling, incorporating a retro feel that is inherent in Kappa’s legendary Italian design. The iconic logo taping on the sleeves and use of rich tonal colours make both the home and away kit a contemporary regeneration of the classics.”
“Hammersmith FC have real pride in their achievements to date, this is represented through the use of their striking logo, which not only adds depth but hammers home their drive and ambition for the future. We very much look forward to seeing these unique kits brought to life when worn on the pitch and by fans.”
