PHOENIX – Phoenix Rising FC announced on Thursday it had secured a six-year partnership with adidas, which will serve as the club’s official outfitter through the 2026 season.
“The 2021 season is set to be an exciting year for Phoenix Rising,” said Rising FC GM Bobby Dulle. “Partnering with the No. 1 soccer brand in the world will help us elevate our footprint in the community and grow the game at the youth and academy levels in Arizona.”
adidas will become the club’s exclusive uniform and equipment provider, outfitting all Rising players, coaches, staff and youth players. Rising’s line of adidas kits will be reviled prior to the start of the 2021 USL Championship season. The league is targeting a start date on or around Saturday, May 1.
“Partnering with the Phoenix Rising brand is a strategic alliance for us,” said adidas soccer Director Frank Battle. “We have long admired the organization's professional and progressive core values that uniquely complement our own. Collectively, we will see our mutual ambitions push boundaries through collaborations both on and off the field. Equally as such, we are excited to bring innovative adidas soccer products to all athletes and fans within the Phoenix Rising community.”
Rising FC’s 2021 jerseys and adidas-branded apparel will also be sold at shoprisingfc.com and all Just Sports locations. Gear will also be available on match days at the club’s new stadium, which will be located on the Gila River Indian Community at Wild Horse Pass.
adidas is the official kit supplier for world-class clubs including La Liga’s Real Madrid, English Premier League’s Manchester United, Serie A’s Juventus, as well as Liga MX’s Tigres and all of Major League Soccer. The national teams of Germany, Argentina and Mexico are also partnered with adidas.
