Tuesday Apr 28, 2015
REDS FANS WILL GET TO CHOOSE NEW KIT
Alfreton Town Football Club have agreed an exclusive new kit deal with UN1TUS, a renowned American-based premium athletic wear manufacturer.
UN1TUS will be producing the club's 2015-16 season kit as part of a multi-year agreement.
Dallas, Texas-based Legend Football Partners is an investor in ATFC and LFP’s Michael Hitchcock fostered the arrangement between UN1TUS and Alfreton Town.
Explaining the deal, he said: “I have visited and seen first hand the creative development and the innovative manufacturing process that UN1TUS utilises in its athletic wear.
"Not only does UN1TUS use cutting edge technology to produce custom athletic wear, but they have a first class business operation led by passionate, talented football people.
“What's exciting for me, is that through this partnership with UN1TUS, the passionate supporters of Alfreton Town FC will also have the opportunity to select the kit that they want their team to wear on the pitch and the shirt that they want to wear at matches and in the community.”
UN1TUS represents a rare manufacturing process in the industry today. All stages of the development and production are done within the company’s single location in Cleveland, Ohio, USA.
Trip Roney, UN1TUS Vice-President of Sales and Marketing, visited ATFC’s Impact Arena in Derbyshire recently and witnessed the passion and dedication of the Alfreton Town supporters.
Roney said UN1TUS is both excited and honoured to participate in the partnership with Alfreton Town.
“Wayne Bradley was an extraordinary host and presides over the club with an unquestionable passion and a commitment to do things in the right way and we are honoured to partner with Wayne and his fellow directors,” Roney said.
“The supporters of this club were equally as welcoming; they accepted us into the occasion with open arms and allowed me to experience one of the most passionate and intense post-game events that I’ve ever been a part of.
“ATFC is blessed to have this family of football enthusiasts carry its flag. To honour this club and the fan’s commitment to the Reds, we will work hard to put out four exciting and innovative options for the community to choose from.
UN1TUS looks forward to developing a deep and long-lasting relationship with the leadership, the supporters, the staff and with the players themselves. All Together Now … C’mon You Reds … WE ARE ONE.”
Fans to choose kit
Additional details about the partnership will be announced in the future; including the “Select Your Kit” campaign where Alfreton Town FC supporters, sponsors and the entire Alfreton community will have a chance to vote for their favourite kit.
The most popular kit as selected by the ATFC fans and community will become the official kit for the 2015-2016 season.
The campaign will begin on May 5th and the Official Shirt will be unveiled at a Kit Unveiling Party being held on June 3rd in Alfreton.
Reds chairman Wayne Bradley commented: “The partner choice for the creation and supply of the club’s new season playing kit is one that we have focused to for some time.
“We set out to partner with an organisation which had the interests of Alfreton Town FC and its supporters at heart. "UN1TUS not only passed all of our tests relating to quality and costs, they also showed passion to the desires of our needs and wishes.
"I am certain that supporters will enjoy being at the heart of the design process of the new kit and will take pride in wearing the shirt of their team and self design.”
