Published Aug 20, 2019

The area’s new professional soccer team, Stumptown Athletic, is partnering with hummel as its official apparel and ball supplier. Stumptown Athletic is part of the National Independent Soccer Association, a new association that’s kicking off this fall.

“We are very excited about the opportunity to support Stumptown Athletic as their official apparel and ball supplier,” said Jeff Duback, hummel North America. “We look forward to bringing hummel’s nearly 100-year soccer history and iconic design to the Charlotte market through this partnership over the next few seasons. This alliance fits perfectly with hummel’s grassroots focus on the soccer market and our support of the game at every level.”

hummel was founded in 1923 and is one of the oldest team sports brands in the business. The company is determined to “Change the World Through Sport,” and considers sport as a universal language that can eliminate differences in culture, religion, politics and beliefs. This aligns with Stumptown Athletic’s focus on great soccer, youth player development and community investment.

“Soccer – football – is a sport, but it’s also a way to come together. It’s a community. It’s love and friendship and bonding and friendly competition,” said Stumptown Athletic President and General Manager Casey Carr. “That’s what I see for Stumptown Athletic, and I’m happy to find a partner in hummel that shares the same vision.”

hummel will supply Stumptown Athletic’s kits, training gear, match and game day balls, and will produce the team’s official fan apparel, from jerseys to hoodies, t-shirts and jackets. Stumptown Athletic will unveil the kit designs in the next few weeks. Season ticket holders will have the first opportunity to purchase the limited-edition first-season jerseys, which are expected to sell out quickly.
