New Partner: Adidas Football (Global Trades)
At the end of 2020 the TCAFC Executive Committee reviewed the Club’s kit and apparel partnership. After reviewing a number of very good submissions the decision was made to end our partnership with Ultra Football in favour of a new supplier.
We are excited to announce that Global Trades, the Adidas Football Distributor for Oceania, is the official kit and apparel partner of TCAFC. Adidas is a premium brand in our game and we believe this partnership aligns with TCAFC’s long-term aspirations.
Key benefits to the Club and its members include access to a wide range of Adidas apparel, including short term discounts and merchandise discounts for our highly valued volunteer coaches.
Managing Director from Global Trades, Manesh Vallabh: “Global Trades (Adidas Football) is excited to welcome Tauranga City AFC to the Adidas family. Our directive is to partner up with key NZ football clubs and help to enhance the game of football in NZ. We are extremely excited to be supporting Tauranga City AFC in their football journey and taking football to a new level.”
So what happens next?We currently have a supply of club apparel so will transition to Adidas as these kits need replacement to ensure we maximise the use of our current playing kits.
The pace of this transition will depend on funding availability, but the aim is to achieve a club-wide full playing kit transition over the next three years.
We have a number of Nike socks and shorts in stock that we will be selling and Adidas socks and shorts will be available for teams that purchase their own, along with other Adidas apparel, in our new Club Store soon.
We see this as a positive partnership for our Club and look forward to presenting a new playing kit for our Mens Northern League teams early in the 2021 season.
We will release more information on our new club store and associated merchandise in the weeks ahead.
