Capelli Sport to Become the Official Apparel and Equipment Supplier for Österreichische Fußball-Bundesliga Referees

Capelli Sport is excited to announce a new partnership with Österreichische Fußball-Bundesliga Referees. Capelli Sport will supply the Austrian referee teams in the ADMIRAL Bundesliga and ADMIRAL 2nd League for four seasons, beginning with the 2024/25 season. The equipment package includes the complete on-field kit for the referee teams, as well as all training and presentation apparel for the 70 referees and assistant referees currently working in the two top domestic divisions. Based on the kits the competing teams are wearing, ÖFB Referees will choose from a total of four jersey colors, ensuring they stand out on the pitch.   

CEO of Bundesliga, Christian Ebenbauer said:

"Professional equipment is extremely important for all athletes on the pitch, which is why we are delighted to welcome Capelli Sport as a new supplier for Bundesliga referees together with the ÖFB. With their wide range of products, we have found a new strong equipment partner for the referees."

Head of Refereeing of ÖFB, Ali Hofmann said:

“Elite refereeing in Austria is currently developing in a new, innovative direction.

We are working closely with the officials to provide them with the best possible equipment."

Area Sale Manager of Capelli Sport Europe, Michael Wiehrl said:

I would like to thank those responsible for the trust they have placed in our work and our products. I am looking forward to an exciting season in the ADMIRAL Bundesliga."
