Fulham Deaf Football Club has today announced a major four year kit supply deal with Nike, which will see the world famous swoosh logo on the Kingston & District Football League Clubs shirts, until 2011.
The four year deal, in conjunction with Nikes team sports partner Just Sport, is the biggest kit supply agreement in the Clubs history. Which, along with the Clubs recent shirt sponsorship announcement with LG, reinforces the Clubs growing stature within the deaf football community.
The future 07/08 season Club kit reflects the Clubs historic past with a modern revision of the all white home shirt first worn in 1903 and a black and red striped away shirt, worn during the 1974/75 season, in which the Club reached its first FA Cup final.
The kit will become available to Fulham DFC fans in July.
Ayad Sarraf, Fulham Deaf Football Clubs Manager commented:
'This is another fantastic agreement for Fulham Deaf and we are delighted to welcome a brand of Nikes magnitude to the Club. Todays announcement is another step forward in fulfilling our goals of becoming a Top Ten Kingston & District Football League Club both on and off the field of play. We are delighted that our supporters will next season be wearing Nike branded kit to our games, and we are confident that we will share a long and happy association with the brand.'
Jim Allaker, General Manager of Nike UK said:
'We are delighted that Fulham Deaf will be joining teams such as Brazil, Manchester United, Celtic and FC Barcelona as one of our football partners. We're proud to be working with such a famous and historic club and we look forward to a long and mutually successful relationship with them.'
