Fulham Football Club announced Kappa as its new Technical Sponsor and Official Supplier of sportswear for the next three seasons. The deal will commence at the start of the 2010/11 campaign.
Kappa, a leading brand in European sportswear, has developed an innovative Kombat shirt for the Fulham Football Club squad at its Kappa R&D centre in Turin, Italy, to the finest quality and design standards.
Fulham Football Club will be the only Premier League team sponsored by Kappa next season and follow in the footsteps of AS Roma, Sampdoria, Dortmund, Copenhagen and Valencia who have all previously worked alongside the renowned manufacturer.
The new kit will continue to be in Fulham’s traditional black and white, and will incorporate the well-known Omini Kappa logo of the back-to-back male and female silhouette.
Fulham Football Club CEO, Alistair Mackintosh, said: “Fulham Football Club is delighted to be partnered with Kappa for the forthcoming seasons. They are an innovative, stylish and sophisticated sportswear brand that complement and embody the core values of Fulham. The partnership will be of great benefit to all areas of the business and we look forward to successful seasons working alongside them.”
Simon Bamber, Kappa CEO commented: “We are delighted to be associated with Fulham Football Club. Their unique positioning, style and heritage fit perfectly with our own ambitions. Also their recent success and the incredible energy that is part of the Craven Cottage experience makes us very excited to be part of the Club's next chapter of their incredible journey.”
Tailored collections for all training and leisurewear will be available in time for the start of the next season. The home and away strips are due to be unveiled this June with availability to buy from July.
