Kappa is proud to announce that it will continue to be the Official Kit Supplier to Southport FC heading into the 23/24 season, following a newly agreed term.
27th July 2023, UK: Kappa is delighted that its long-standing partnership with Southport FC, the National League North club, will continue into the new season.
Kappa brings its renowned creativity to the 23/24 kit with a redesign that incorporates the club’s jersey heritage of stripes with a freshen-up that provides a contemporary edge as the team heads into the upcoming season. The infamous Omini logo will stand proudly on the team kit, an emblem of the brand’s rich history and commitment to premium quality, style, and performance. The new kit will be debuted on 5th August by the men’s first team at the opening league game of the season when they face Warrington Town at the Big Help Stadium.
Steve Dewsnip, Head of Commercial & Operations at Southport FC said: “We are pleased to be working with Kappa UK again this season and are excited about the launch of our new home shirt. The Southport old gold-coloured shirt with black stripes and trim follows a similar design to the striped away shirt we introduced last year, which proved to be a big hit with our supporters. We anticipate the new home shirt to be equally as popular."
Mark Ward, the Kappa UK & IRL Brand Director, adds “Kappa is committed to creative design and innovation, utilising its wealth of knowledge of sports communities to drive excellence in its products, services, and experiences. Our goal is to elevate the Kappa brand, our partners, and their fans through our authentic love of the game, and passion for the culture that unites the players, staff, and fans.”
“This new kit launch demonstrates our commitment and partnership with Southport FC, and we are delighted to continue our relationship with both the team and the fans. We look forward to seeing the new kit in action and wish the team every success in the upcoming season.”
Kappa welcomes this new agreement as it continues to focus on serving its established partners with high-quality performance wear that brings the sport of football alive with flair and innovation. By forging long-lasting relationships with partners throughout the elite field of play, Kappa sets out to also support the enablement of participation at all levels, for all genders.
With a rich heritage within the game, Kappa has historically partnered with some of the biggest football clubs such as Juventus, AS Monaco, Barcelona, Aston Villa, and Napoli.
The shirt is now available to order on the Southport FC online store and will be on sale in the Club Shop from Saturday 29th July.
