Canada Soccer and Umbro Canada are pleased to announce a multi-year renewal of their partnership that will see Umbro Canada continue as Canada Soccer’s Official Sportswear Supplier, providing all official kits and all on-field competitive and training apparel for Canada’s National Teams.
“Building on the tremendous success of the relationship we started in 2011, Canada Soccer is thrilled to see this new enhanced partnership continue to serve our Canadian soccer community and fans of Canada’s National Teams, especially with the exciting times that are around the corner with the FIFA Women’s World Cup Canada 2015TM and a new cycle for the Men’s National Team program,” said Peter Montopoli, Canada Soccer General Secretary.
Over the past four years, in part thanks to Umbro Canada’s commitment to Canadian soccer and passion for the beautiful game, Canada Soccer’s brand has increased its presence at retail and sales of official Canada Soccer Umbro jerseys and apparel have seen incremental growth.
“As an authentic football brand, Umbro Canada remains the perfect partner for Canada Soccer at this time of dynamic growth,” said Michael Shoemaker, Vice-President of Umbro Canada. “Renowned for our commitment to detail and expert service, we look forward to continue working closely with Canada Soccer in bringing fans closer to Canada’s National Teams and weaving ourselves in the fabric of our Canadian soccer community.”
Umbro Canada will continue to introduce innovative apparel performance technology that benefit Canada’s National Teams, as well as continue to manage and operate the Canada Soccer online store.
Umbro Canada is also expected to unveil a new line of Canada Soccer products for fans of all ages ahead of the momentous 2015 season and will continue to collaborate with Canada Soccer on promotional campaigns that resonate with Canadians from coast to coast.
Umbro’s 90 years of soccer history and heritage, combined with Canada Soccer’s mission to provide leadership in the pursuit of excellence in soccer, will continue to contribute to the development of all levels of soccer in Canada, from the community to the national teams.
