Crewe Alexandra Football Club are delighted to announce that Football Thailand (FBT) have become the Club’s new official kit & team-wear supplier from 2017/18 on a two-year-deal.
The manufacturing deal will see The Alex play in uniquely designed bespoke kits for the duration of the contract, with the 2017/18 home & away designs set to be revealed next week. The home strip is set to go on sale from late-June.
Alex Chairman John Bowler said: “After careful consideration & discussions with several interested parties, we have decided to select FBT as our new kit supplier.
“The quality of FBT’s products impressed us, as did their enthusiasm to be in partnership with the Football Club. Importantly, they manufacture kit on their own premises, which gives them ultimate control over production & will ensure that delivery dates are met.
“The commercial opportunity also involved with this partnership is an exciting prospect & we look forward to working with them over the next few years.”
