Cape Town, South Africa, 23 June 2021:
Umbro South Africa is pleased to announce an extension to its technical partnership agreement with South African Premier League club, Cape Town City Football Club (CTCFC).
Technical sponsor since the club’s inception in 2016, Umbro will continue to kit the Citizens in matchday, training and off-field apparel. The announcement follows a prolific attacking season for the Citizens who have scored thirty-nine goals in 2021, only five goals behind league champions, Mamelodi Sundowns.
David Ricketts, Chief Executive Officer at Umbro South Africa, says “We are pleased to announce this extension. We have been partners since the founding of CTCFC and have seen the club go from strength to strength. They are one of the most commercially astute football teams in South Africa. Our brands have grown together over the past five years, and we are excited to continue this partnership.”
“We have jointly produced dynamic designs which are often the most anticipated of the season. Central to this success has been the loyal support of the Blue and Gold Army who have truly embraced our jerseys and taken the double diamond from the field to fashion. In preparation for the new season, our collective teams are working hard to create something different that will resonate with the Citizens both on and off the field.”
Commenting on the partnership, Cape Town City F.C.’s John Comitis said “Strong partnerships are the cornerstone of all great sporting institutions. Over the last five seasons, our relationship with Umbro has allowed us to elevate the expectations of South African football supporters with innovative kits and apparel. Both brands have enjoyed exponential growth in the football market over this time, and we are excited to continue this great collaboration.”
