Blue Square Bet Premier club Tamworth FC are proud to announce a new partnership deal with German sports brand JAKO that will see the club playing in the brand for the next 3 years.
Commercial Manager Nick Lunn stated: We are pleased to be working with JAKO as our new kit supplier. The club made the decision to use German company JAKO because of the extensive product range and excellent quality. JAKO was not a brand that had a lot of awareness in the UK, some basic research of the kind of clubs in Europe who had committed to JAKO was further re-assurance.
We look forward to a long a positive working relationship between club & brand. Distributed by mail order company Pro Active Teamwear, JAKO will supply Home Kit, Away Kit, Training Kit & Team Clothing to the club. They will also be responsible for supplying the replica shirts and co-ordinate clothing range to the club store and academy.
Glen Wilkinson Stated: ‘This is a fantastic opportunity for us. Tamworth are a well established and exciting club to join forces with and we want to work closely with them to generate a good solid relationship. I am confident that the quality of our products, collection & availability means that Tamworth can maximise sales & profitability and at the same time give them a very professional outlook' JAKO are well established in Europe with partner clubs Sturm Graz, Hannover 96, SC Herenveen and FC Augsburg, we also have 3 national teams namely Georgia, Moldova & Luxembourg.
Tamworth join East Stirlingshire of Scottish League Division 3 and Leamington FC of the Evo-Stik League who have also agreed to wear the JAKO branding going forward. ‘We are in talks with many clubs at the moment, and hope that we will have more developments over the next few months, but the fact that Tamworth have given us this opportunity at such an early stage will help us raise the profile and I am very grateful of their support' said Glen Wilkinson Sales Director
