Seattle WA, March. 11, 2014 – We are delighted to announce that Sporting Seattle FC will play their inaugural season in the NPSL in Admiral.   Admiral has earned a reputation as one of the most iconic kit manufacturers around having been suppliers for the England national football team along with clubs such as Manchester United.  This new agreement also has special significance for soccer fans in Seattle because the Seattle Sounders wore Admiral when the company was the club's kit suppliers in the original North American Soccer League. 

Owner of Sporting Seattle FC Victor Perez said. “Having gone through a detailed process over the past few months to find a kit supplier, I am thrilled that we’ve agreed a deal with Admiral. We have talked seriously to lots of the key names in kit supply, but the Admiral offer was by far the best and most interesting.”

The new kit designs will be revealed closer to the start of the season in April.


“Admiral is working with over 60 professional teams throughout the US, across many leagues to create custom team uniforms and fan wear,” said Paul Hamburger, President of Admiral Sports. “We’re making the club a unique kit and helping them with retail merchandise and online sales too.”


Established in 1914, Admiral started life as a supplier to the British Armed Forces, and has since become a renowned sportswear supplier.  A ground-breaking deal came when Admiral agreed a five-year contract with the English FA in 1974 to produce the first commercially available England soccer jersey. Having also supplied the England cricket team, Admiral remains the only ever brand to have appeared on both the English national cricket and soccer teams’ playing kit.  Admiral has supplied most of today’s British Premier League and was the largest brand in the original NASL. Today, Admiral is worn by 2012 NASL champions Tampa Bay Rowdies, as well as by 2013 USL PDL Champions Austin Aztex and supplies more NSPL clubs than any other brand.
