Truro City FC x Kappa



Truro City has signed a minimum three-year deal with Kappa UK to be the club’s official kit supplier.

Kappa will provide all the kit for Truro City’s first team, who play in the National League South, the second tier of non-league football. The deal also includes attire for the Reserves and Under-18s side, as well as clothing for supporters.

This is a match made in Cornish heaven, since Truro-based Q Brands acquired the exclusive distribution rights for Kappa in the UK and Ireland at the end of 2023, bringing jobs and opportunity to this corner of the south west.

The 2024-25 season is of enormous significance to Truro City as the club comes home to Cornwall after a three-year exile. In 2021, the Tinners had to vacate their ground in the city and play ‘home’ matches over the border in Devon while its new stadium was under construction.



Now Truro City are back where they belong, at a brand new 3,000 capacity stadium on the edge of the city, ready for the new season kick-off in August.   

The recent appointment of John Askey as the club’s new manager reflects Truro City’s ambition to climb the football pyramid. With a track record of managing in EFL Leagues One and Two and gaining promotion from the National League to the EFL with Macclesfield Town, the prospects for Truro City under Askey’s leadership are very exciting.

Truro City have also just unveiled a redesigned club crest, showing Truro Cathedral  rendered in black on a white background and Cornwall’s St Piran’s flag sitting below the city’s iconic landmark. The new badge will feature prominently on the 2024-25 shirts which are currently under manufacture.

"Growing up, Kappa was the coolest brand you could wear," said Truro City's executive chairman Eric Perez. "We’re super pumped to have Kappa as our kit partner and we know they will bring the cool to Truro City."

The return home of Cornwall’s highest-ranked football team and the relocation of an iconic sportswear brand to the Duchy is a perfect coincidence and Truro City and Kappa are looking forward to a bright future together.
