Admiral Sports is proud to announce that they have signed an exclusive partnership agreement with the Bragg FC of the UPSL (United Premier Soccer League) to supply all the club’s teamwear and merchandise.
Bragg Football Club is an American Soccer club currently based in Fayetteville, North Carolina. The club was founded in May 2015 by several serious soccer players at Fort Bragg, NC. The original goal was to get a team together for the 17th Annual Defender’s Cup, National Military Soccer Tournament at Joint Base San Antonio, Fort Sam Houston, Texas. 45 teams from all branches of the military were featured in the tournament. Bragg FC won the 2016 Defender’s Cup, National Military Soccer Tournament, and advanced to the knockout round of the 2017 event. The team also played in a local Fayetteville (N.C.) Amateur Professional Development League and will begin play in the UPSL’s Pro Premier Division March 25th, 2018.
Captain Kyle Furfari, 35, is Chief Executive Financial Officer of Bragg FC. A native of New Jersey, Kyle played OPD before playing collegiate soccer at Western State Colorado University and later at York College. He also was selected as the Goalkeeper for the All-Army Soccer Team in 2012, and currently serves as a Civil Affairs Officer at Fort Bragg (N.C.).
Bragg FC Chief Executive Financial Officer Kyle Furfari said, “The Admiral brand was a pioneer in the sportswear world and became the face for soccer apparel. Worn by some of the best players in the world, and some of the top teams we all love to watch… Bragg Football Club, a team of Active Duty members from the Armed Forces will be proud to wear our new custom Admiral uniforms.”
Admiral Sports CEO Paul Hamburger stated. “It’s great to work Bragg FC, they represent our armed service. We’re proud of what they do, who they represent and deeply appreciate the sacrifices they make to protect our nation. It’s a privilege to make their uniforms. We will make the team look good on the field as they go in to battle!”
Admiral is a legendary brand, having been worn by some of the biggest names in the sporting world. The England National Team, Manchester United, and the New York Cosmos are just some of the clubs that once donned Admiral. In fact, Admiral has supplied most of the current EPL teams in addition to being the largest brand in the original NASL. The company, a pioneering brand in the truest sense, was recently the subject of a British TV documentary called Get Shirty.
Admiral has now grown into a major player in the North American team wear market. The company also offers a wide range of accessories, including goals, bags, balls, goalkeeper gloves, referee supplies, and training equipment.
