Barnet FC agree three-year deal with Jako Sports
Barnet FC are delighted to announce the beginning of new partnership with kit manufacturer Jako Sports. The club have agreed a deal with the German sportswear company which will see Jako produce both the playing and training kit for Barnet FC for the next three seasons.
Reacting to the deal, Barnet FC Chairman Tony Kleanthous, said:
“It’s great to be able to form this partnership with a top-quality manufacturer in the sports industry such as Jako. All the staff here have been very impressed with the garments and we hope that this will be the beginning of another long term relationship.”
The partnership will dovetail with Jako’s recent sponsorship of both Barnet FC’s sister club the London Bees and Super League outfit London Broncos who made The Hive their official home at the start of this year, with Export Jako UK spokesperson Paul Todd commenting:
“After a very successful start to our association with the Broncos and the Bees we are very happy to welcome the final member of The Hive family into our partnership and are looking forward to a long and prosperous relationship.”
The first Barnet FC home kit designed by Jako for the forthcoming 2014/15 season sees a return to the classic black and amber stripes for which the Bees are synonymous. The away kit is also sure to catch the eye with a purple and white striped design.
Barnet FC manager Martin Allen was full of praise for the new shirts, declaring:
“It’s a great kit. I love the stripes and all the players cannot wait to play in it.”
The new shirt, which is made with a high-quality, vapour permeable fabric, uses innovative Active Climate Technology to ensure optimal performance by guaranteeing a high circulation of air and allowing increased ventilation.
It will be sponsored by Toshiba, Barnet FC’s official club partner, as part of the new partnership that has seen the development of a world-class medical centre here at The Hive.
The first stocks of the new kit are expected to arrive by the end of July, but you can pre-order your new shirt now by either visiting the club shop or calling 020 8381 3800 and selecting option two.
