Iron announce FBT kit deal

17 May 2017

Scunthorpe United Football Club are delighted to announce that Football Thailand will be the club’s brand new official teamwear supplier from the 2017/18 season on an initial three-year deal.

FBT Europe, based in Yorkshire, are part of “Football Thai Factory Sporting Goods Co Ltd”, who have a 60-year history developing and selling sporting goods to over 40 countries, with over 2,800 staff in its head office in Bangkok, Thailand.

Scunthorpe United’s chairman, Peter Swann, said “We are delighted to have partnered with Football Thailand as the club’s brand new official kit supplier and significant club sponsor.”
“There was no shortage of interested parties and, after discussions with various suppliers, FBT’s quality of products shone through and, importantly for us, they manufacture the kit in their own factories from start to finish, which gives them full control over production and will ensure that delivery dates are met.”
“We are very excited to explore the commercial opportunities that this partnership will bring to the football club so we look forward to working with them over the next few years and beyond.”
Sir Rodney Walker, chairman of FBT Europe, said “FBT Europe are excited to be working with Scunthorpe United as the official kit supplier and apparel supplier to the club, and its loyal fan base.”
“FBT will produce strips for the first team, Academy and Community teams, building on the successes of the club, made possible by the Chairman, Peter Swann, and the CEO, Jim Rodwell, along with all the players and staff.”
“We are looking forward to the development of the new stadium in 2018, and the ambition to get The Iron back into the Championship and beyond.”
“Building on our successful relationship with the EFL and EFL Trust, we are proud to be partnering several professional league football and rugby clubs in the UK, in addition to being the official England Boxing merchandise and sportswear supplier, and the official UK FootGolf Association teamwear and merchandise suppliers.”
“FBT aim to keep the fans at the forefront of the new developments of leisure and training wear - being a manufacturer allows for bespoke clothing ranges and unique designs for the team and supporters.”
The kit supply deal will see the Iron play in bespoke kits for the duration of the deal, with the 2017/18 home and away design set to be revealed in early July and going on sale later that month.
