FN Teamwear come on board as kit suppliers
May 8, 2019
We are pleased to announce that the club has today agreed a new kit partnership with Scottish based kit supplier FN Teamwear which will see Spanish giants Joma become the club’s official kit manufacturer from the 2019/20 season.
The deal will see Airdrieonians wear Joma home and away kit for the next two seasons, with the home shirt custom made to ensure the famous Diamond feature takes pride of place on the front of the kit.
Joma, who are already well known within the Scottish game, supply clubs in many top leagues around the world including La Liga, Serie A, Ligue 1 and the Bundesliga as well as national federations.
FN Teamwear, established in 2006, have been heavily involved in the professional game over the years as well as kitting out numerous grassroots clubs, amateur teams as well as delving into a host of other sports and industries as the company continues to grow from its Peffermill HQ in Edinburgh.
The partnership between Joma, FN Teamwear and Airdrieonians ensures that the best people are on hand to ensure all players, staff and fans of Airdrieonians have the kit they deserve as the club looks to kick on from this season’s fifth place finish.
Additionally, FN Teamwear will also take over the online retail operation via their Football Nation website as well as stocking out the club shop at the Penny Cars Stadium, a deal that will help increase retail revenue for the club. An excellent Joma training and leisurewear range will be available to accompany the match kits via both avenues as well as a whole host of new club accessories.
Director of football Stuart Millar said: “Airdrieonians FC is delighted to be able to announce this fantastic, long-term partnership with both Joma and FN Teamwear for the 2019/20 SPFL League One season onwards.
