Waterford FC is delighted to announce a new shirt sponsor and unveil the club’s 2019 Umbro home jersey.

Online casino company, Spin Casino, join as the club’s new main shirt sponsor while our new Umbro home jersey goes on sale tomorrow, Saturday.

The Spin Casino logo will proudly feature on the First Team home and away jerseys for the 2019 season; which sees the return of European football to Waterford. The newly-designed home jersey goes on sale this Saturday from the Waterford FC club shop at 11am.

The new Waterford FC Umbro kit has been unveiled as part of the 2019 kit campaign ‘We Are Waterford FC’, which reflects a bringing together of people and place for clubs that form the heart of their community.

Robert Miller, Spin Casino Head of Brand Marketing, said:

“We are thrilled that Spin Casino will be partnering with Waterford FC for the upcoming season. Not only is Waterford FC one of Ireland’s most historic clubs, but what really shone through was the passion behind the team and the great sense of community involvement around the football club. We cannot wait for the season to get going and are proud to be part of the Waterford FC family.”

Speaking about the exciting new partnership between Waterford FC and Spin Casino, Waterford FC Operations Manager, Tony Burke, said:“We’re thrilled to announce Spin Casino as the club’s new main shirt sponsor. With European football coming to the RSC in 2019, it’s great to have the backing of a business like Spin Casino.

“To attract a sponsor like Spin Casino is a credit to the hard work being done around the club and shows the progress that the club has made in the past seasons; on and off the pitch. The club is striving to become self-sufficient and the backing of a business like Spin Casino is a fantastic coup for the club.

“Our thanks to everybody who worked together on the partnership and to Chris Russell who played a big part in the new sponsorship deal.

“Thanks also to Jonathan Courtenay and his team for producing a terrific home jersey for 2019. We’re delighted with how the jersey has turned out and it’s a great addition to the Umbro training range that went on sale in our club shop a few weeks ago.”

Speaking about the Waterford FC and Spin Casino link-up, Chris Russell, Waterford-based Entrepreneur and CEO of Thimba Media, said:

“It was a pleasure introducing and facilitating the partnership between these two great businesses; Spin Casino and Waterford FC. This partnership is a great step forward for football in Waterford ahead of an exciting return to Europe.”

The new Umbro 2019 Home kit incorporates a clean Royal and White design. The kit has been engineered using Polyester Lightweight Micro-Eyelet fabric with a 1×1 Rib. It also features a partly ribbed white collar with a contrasting royal front. The unique raglan sleeve graphic pays homage to the iconic Umbro kits of the 90’s. The Royal shorts and socks complete the look.

Jonathan Courtenay, Managing Director of JACC Sports, Irish Distributor for Umbro, said: 

“We are delighted to bring the latest Waterford FC home kit to market for the 2019 season. We have had a great reaction to our previous kits and we feel that the classic look and feel of this new Umbro kit will prove a real winner with both the fans in the terraces and with the players on pitch.”

The full range of Waterford FC home kit and training products are available at the Waterford FC Club Shop (at the back of the new stand in the RSC) from Saturday December 15th at 11am priced at €65 for adults and €55 for kids.
