Capelli Sport to Become the Official Uniform and Equipment Supplier for all three USL Spokane teams
Capelli Sport is excited to announce a new multi-year partnership with USL Spokane, through its ownership group, Aequus Sports, LLC. This agreement will make Capelli Sport the official and exclusive provider of uniforms, equipment, and training apparel for the Washington State–based organization. Capelli Sport will outfit all of USL Spokane’s professional and pre-professional players, including the USL League One men’s team, the brand-new women’s first division USL Super League and USL W-League women’s pre-professional. The partnership will officially begin in July 2023 with all three teams being outfitted and served from their 2024 inaugural season and into the next two years of play, 2025 and 2026.
Founded in 2022, USL Spokane is a member of the United Soccer League; the largest and fastest-growing professional soccer organization in North America. USL Spokane will host their home games at a new stadium located in the vibrant North Bank District of downtown Spokane. The A1 location provides a premium fan experience with walkability to local bars, dining, hotels, and cultural amenities. The new stadium is a multi-use venue in partnership with Spokane Public Schools and the Spokane Public Facilities District with a Fall 2023 projected completion. Rounding out the investment in community in parallel with growing the game of soccer for Washington State, USL Spokane will be adding a Youth Academy to the club in the summer of 2025.
