Blackpool FC is delighted to announce that a two-year agreement has been signed with Italian Sportswear Company Errea to become the club’s official kit provider.
The contract, which will commence from the 2013-14 season, will see the Parma-based company provide bespoke match and training wear to The Seasiders.
“Blackpool FC has a very unique brand within English football and we were thoroughly impressed by what Errea had to say in terms of helping the club enhance this,” said Head of Retail Richard Wild.
“Our supporters crave quality merchandise and when you have the option of utilising our strong colour scheme into this range it was the perfect fit for all concerned.”
Club officials flew out to Parma before the contract was signed to witness firsthand the impressive operation at Errea HQ and also implement designs for next season. At present Errea have in excess of 50 professional contracts with football clubs worldwide and list Premier League Norwich City and Championship high-flyers Brighton amongst their portfolio.
Errea Sales Director Fabrizio Taddei added: “We are extremely proud to become technical sponsors of Blackpool FC, there is always something very special about working with a club that has such a long and distinguished history.
“We are looking forward to next season and to working closely with the club to develop new and stylish ranges for all the fans.”
Thomas Ince and Matt Phillips have already tried out the new kits, with full images to be unveiled later this week.
The new kits are expected to be on sale towards the end of June.
