Capelli Sport to Become the Official Uniform and Equipment Supplier for Oakville Soccer Club
The Oakville Soccer Club and Capelli Sport are thrilled to announce an exciting new partnership. This initiative will see Capelli Sport Canada become the official and exclusive apparel provider to OSC beginning in 2024, bringing not just new threads to both recreational and competitive players at OSC, but community, player, and coach engagement opportunities through the Capelli Sport+ program.
The cohesive nature of OSC’s commitment to both player development and building a positive soccer experience for all, combined with Capelli Sport's unique ability to add value at all levels of play will set this partnership apart. The innovative Capelli Sport+ program offers unparalleled access to networking, marketing, educational, and collaborative resources which can benefit teams, players, and coaches at all levels. The Capelli Sport+ network of talent ID scouts will complement OSC’s player pathway infrastructure, with Capelli Sport’s network of owned and partnered professional clubs serving as potential landing spots for high-performance athletes.
In addition to partnering with over 700 youth, high school, collegiate, semi-pro, and pro clubs, Capelli Sport owns clubs in Germany, Denmark, the UK, Ghana, and the USA, and supplies FIFA-approved jerseys for the national teams of 5 countries. By partnering with Capelli Sport, OSC is becoming part of a global network that feels like a closely connected family. A company run by players, for players, they believe that every athlete deserves fair play, a supportive atmosphere, and high-quality uniforms and training apparel.
This partnership aligns perfectly with Oakville Soccer Club’s strategic plan, “To lead our community within the Canadian soccer landscape by providing meaningful opportunities to develop and grow.” Partnering with OSC is a massive step forward for the rapidly-growing team wear manufacturer, and will firmly establish the Capelli Sport brand in the Canadian market.
As one of the largest amateur sports clubs in Canada, the Oakville Soccer Club proudly provides in-house and partnership programs that span the full player pathway in both the youth recreation and competitive streams. Additionally, OSC offers recreational adult programming, which enables them to offer programming from ages to 2 and up, to truly provide quality soccer experiences throughout one’s life. Capelli Sport is a global multi-sports brand based in New York City, specializing in team sports and supports all athletes through a unique global sports ecosystem with a focus on service excellence. Capelli Sport's reputation for top-notch quality, innovation, and sleek designs aligns seamlessly with Oakville Soccer Club's commitment to excellence both on and off the pitch. Together, these two powerhouses will work together toward the mutual goal of providing the best possible experience for all Club members.
