AUGUST 10, 2017

Kappa Australia and South Melbourne FC have today signed off on a multi-year partnership which will see the National Premier League powerhouse wearing Kappa Apparel on and off-field for the next three seasons.

Kappa Australia will produce and provide quality on and off-field ranges for all South Melbourne FC teams inclusive of men’s women’s, junior teams and academies.

Instantly recognised on football fields and futsal courts around the globe, Kappa has provided cutting edge garments for some of the world’s best players and biggest teams including Manchester City, Juventus, AC Milan and the Italian National team.

Kappa Australia Managing Director Ze’ev Bogaty saying it was pleasing to see the iconic Kappa Omini logo back on the playing strip of the 10-time National Premier league champions.

“As a brand, we are exceptionally pleased to see the Kappa Logo, back where it belongs on the famous South Melbourne FC playing strip as we embark on what we believe will be extremely successful partnership” Said Bogaty

“Like South Melbourne FC, Kappa is an organisation which boasts a long and proud footballing history, and we look forward to working with the team at SMFC to not only achieve, but exceed our collective on and off-field goals”

South Melbourne FC Chief Executive Officer Leo Athanasakis adding.

“We’re excited to have secured a long-term apparel deal with Kappa, allowing for the club to commence its planning for the 2018 season. Kappa has supported us already in 2017 through a partnership for the Roberto Carlos event, as well as the Westfield FFA Cup, so we’re excited to have them on board for the next three years.” Leo said.

“As well as exclusive designs for all of the clubs registered players, male and female, we look forward to also being able to bring our members and supporters a larger range of apparel through our newly constructed shop” 

“We’d like to thank Ze'ev and the Kappa team for their support”

Founded in 1959, South Melbourne FC have nurtured and developed some of the country’s most successful and best-known football talent including Paul Wade, Paul Trimboli and current National Team Coach Ange Postecoglou.

South Melbourne FC have also produced a staggering 52 players who have gone onto represent Australia and play with the Socceroos.

Kappa is currently worn internationally by SSC Napoli, fellow Italian fan favourites Torino and Leeds United in the England’s Championship.
