Capelli Sport is proud to announce a new collaboration and partnership with Lakeland Tropics Futbol Club and Florida Tropics Soccer Club. The two clubs represent the youth and professional pyramid of the Tropics organization. With a 4 year agreement finalized, Capelli Sport will become the Official and Exclusiveuniform, apparel and equipment provider for the Professional and Youth clubs. Beginning Fall 2019, the Florida Tropics pro-club will wear Capelli Sport, and in 2020, will match the youth travel kits – supporting further integration of the Tropics organization. All on-field and off-field player and coach apparel, accessories and equipment will be exclusively Capelli Sport.
“We are very excited to start our new partnership with the Tropics professional and youth teams,” said Capelli Sport President and CEO George Altirs. “We have worked very closely with the staff and couldn’t ask for better partners. We see a bright future working together in many aspects.” Capelli Sport Vice President of Sporting Business, Jason Arnold, commented on the partnership. “There is a lot of talent at the club 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.”
“Our Board took a lengthy approach in determining our next uniform partnership,” said Board President, Yadira Holmes. “It was imperative for us to select a partner who had the same vision to ensure the highest and most valuable experience for our families, coaches and players. We believe Capelli Sport is prepared to offer a stellar customer experience, with a high-end design that our families deserve and expect. It’s going to be an exciting partnership for our club.”
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 Lakeland Tropics to that list of partnerships.
