COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC announced on Tuesday it had struck a partnership with Capelli Sport as its official uniform and equipment supplier in a multi-year deal.
Per the terms of the agreement, Capelli Sport will supply its innovative apparel and training gear to the organization for the 2018 season. This will mark the first year of a five-year agreement between the two organizations.
“Ed Ragain and I met George Altirs at the 2013 USL Cup Final in Orlando,” Switchbacks FC’s President Nick Ragain said. “Both his and Jason Arnold’s commitment to the growth of soccer in America has been inspiring, and we are proud to partner with them in elevating the game and the United Soccer League.”
