The Charleston Battery announced Tuesday a multi-year partnership with Danish sportswear brand hummel as the club’s official on-field apparel provider. Hummel will outfit the Black and Yellow with all training, travel, and matchday attire beginning this season.
As one of the oldest sportswear brands in the world, hummel has amassed an exemplary footballing heritage. The Battery join an impressive roster of clubs outfitted by hummel, including the Danish national team, Everton F.C., Southampton F.C. and S.C. Braga, among other clubs around the world.
“The Battery are proud to partner with hummel and join top clubs around the world in working with such an innovative sportswear provider,” said Battery President of Business Operations Scott Krenitski. “Hummel’s commitment to the community and ‘changing the world through sport’ are key values that we align with. Through this partnership, we’re excited to provide our players high-quality gear to perform on the pitch, as well as giving fans a wide selection of new Battery merchandise by hummel.”
“We are thrilled with the opportunity to be working with the Charleston Battery as their technical apparel partner for on- and off-the-field needs,” said hummel North America Country Manager Jeff Duback. “Like hummel, the Battery have a long iconic history in the game, one that I experienced personally playing against the team in the 1990s. As this is our first year working with USL Championship clubs, we are excited to see what the partnership brings and grow with them over the years. This partnership aligns with both our global and local goal to ‘change the world through sport’.”
Hummel will supply Battery players and technical staff with high-performance training gear and matchday attire, including new home and away kits for the 2022 season.
Battery fans can anticipate a full line of new hummel gear at the Battery team store as well as a striking set of new jerseys to ring in the club’s 30th season. The partnership with hummel follows an extensive search by the Battery to find a partner who shares the club’s values and desire to push the boundaries.
Complete details on the unveiling of Charleston’s 2022 home and away kits will be available in the coming weeks, with the pair of kits set to be revealed during a season kickoff event for fans in early March.
Fans can get their first look at some of the new hummel gear debuting in the 2022 preseason as the Battery welcome Major League Soccer’s Columbus Crew, Inter Miami CF and Charlotte FC for the Breeze Airways™ Carolina Challenge Cup, February 12-19 at Patriots Point. Tickets are on sale now for the exhibition tournament via SeatGeek.com.
