Warrior Football has delivered another statement of intent to its global strategy by announcing the brand will become the official kit supplier of two-time European champions FC Porto.
Effective from July 2014, the deal will see Warrior design the FC Porto home, away and third kits, as well as training apparel.
Pinto da Costa, President of FC Porto, said: “FC Porto always aims to work with great brands and this partnership is proof of that. Warrior is a renowned brand and personifies, even in its name, FC Porto's warrior spirit. Warrior will be a strategic partner on the triumphs we want to continue achieving.”
Founded in 1893, FC Porto is a club built on success. No other Portuguese club can match their impressive list of honours and the €Dragµes' (Dragons) have achieved a clean sweep of every major competition in Europe, a feat very few teams have managed.
During the 2012/13 season, Porto blew away their rivals as they became the second team in the history of the Primeira Liga to twice complete an entire 30 game season unbeaten.
FC Porto joins Liverpool FC, Sevilla FC and Stoke City FC on Warrior's roster of teams. Since launching in football in 2012, the brand has established strong relationships with high profile global clubs and players; Fernando Reges, Vincent Kompany, Marouane Fellaini and Kolo Toure amongst those promoting the Warrior brand and products.
