Green is for go for United
Carlisle United Football Club are delighted to reveal the new look away kit for the 2012/13 season. Produced by Italian Heritage brand Fila, the kit is a ‘Stobart’ green design to commemorate the 18 year sponsorship of ‘The Cumbrians’ by major haulage company Stobart Group.
Having launched the new Fila kit back in May this is the second & final kit to be launched by the Italian heritage brand ahead of the 2012-13 season.
Carlisle United Managing Director, John Nixon, commented: “We feel this kit provides a fantastic alternative to our home kit and also celebrates a long-standing relationship with Stobart’s. They have been very loyal supporters to the club and with Fila we have produced a quality bespoke kit that will look great on fans and players alike.”
Andrew Tinkler, Stobart Group Chief Executive, added: “We are extremely proud to be associated with Carlisle United and are delighted with the new away kit. This is a lovely gesture by the club and we are extremely grateful to them and Fila who have done a fantastic job designing this. We are very excited to see the kit being worn with pride over the coming season.”
The new away kit will be available both from the club shop and local JD Sports (Carlisle & Workington) from Saturday when the club start their competitive season in the Capital One Cup opener against Accrington Stanley.
