International sportswear brand, Capelli Sport has announced a four-year partnership with the Guyana Football Federation (GFF). Per the terms of the agreement, Capelli Sport, as of August 2019, will be the official uniform, apparel and equipment provider for all teams under GFF, including the youth, senior, men’s and women’s national teams. In addition, the partnership will also include support for GFF traveling teams, full usage of Capelli Sport fields and training facilities, as well as a branded online GFF fan shop.
Capelli Sport first began a partnership with GFF in May 2019, which named Capelli Sport as the official uniform provider for Guyana’s first ever appearance at the CONCACAF Gold Cup. During the tournament, Guyana faced off against the United States, Panama and Trinidad & Tobago, also outfitted by Capelli Sport. “The Capelli kit partnership contract is groundbreaking for Guyana Football,” said GFF President, Wayne Forde. “The value this deal will deliver over the next four years will vastly impact the development of Football across Guyana.”
“We are very excited to be partnering with Guyana Football Federation,” said Capelli Sport President and CEO George Altirs. “This has been a great year for them with their appearance at the Gold Cup, and we look forward to supplying them with quality Capelli Sport products for their continued growth and development.” Capelli Sport Vice President of Sporting Business, Jason Arnold, commented on the partnership. “There is a lot of talent within the Guyana Football Federation and Capelli Sport is looking forward to providing these athletes with the uniforms, equipment and developmental opportunities to further the programs growth and success over the next four years.”
Capelli Sport was founded in 2011 by President and CEO George Altirs, with the mission to provide quality, functionality and design for high-level performance on the field. Altirs’ more than 30 years in the apparel, fashion and accessory business with parent company, GMA Accessories, led to the creation of Capelli Sport. The brand’s innovative, world-class training gear, equipment and uniforms have yielded many global recreational, youth, club, collegiate, semi-professional and professional sports partnerships. The new agreement will add the Guyana Football Federation to that list of partnerships.
