The Trinidad & Tobago Football Association (TTFA) has secured the largest commercial technical kit deal since qualification for the 2006 FIFA World Cup with a contract valued at TT$25million over the next four-years.
The agreement with international supplier Avec, reflects an association with a proven and experienced brand which has supplied many globally recognised English clubs over the years, such as Crystal Palace, Sunderland, Sheffield United and Bradford City alongside many others in the English and Scottish Football Leagues.
Avec’s history of supplying technical playing and training kit to all levels and age groups from the English Premier League through to academies, schools and colleges has been an important consideration in establishing this new association.
The contract will commence in June 2020 and Avec will supply premium playing kit and training wear to all TTFA representative sides including the men’s and women’s senior sides and all age group categories.
The new range will also be available to fans through physical and online retail outlets meaning fans will be able to wear the same designs of playing and training wear worn by all representative teams.
TTFA President, William Wallace said: “The level of this partnership reflects a landmark moment for the TTFA and we are delighted with the outcome. The challenge was to find a new apparel partner who could provide the best possible commercial outcome and ensure a smooth supply of apparel to every single team on our roster. The search was comprehensive, but our unanimous conclusion was that Avec offered an overall proposition that was a perfect fit in all aspects.
“We now have a deal in place which offers unrivalled terms for the supply of kit at all levels and a Partner who will be agile and responsive to our playing and retail requirements at any given moment.
“This type of deal is unprecedented in the TTFA’s history. It is a completely fresh and exciting Partnership which sits perfectly as part of the new era for Trinidad and Tobago football.”
Avec Sport Chairman, Peter Crawford said: “We are delighted to become the Official Kit Partners to the TTFA National Teams. We truly believe this is an exciting time to be involved with the TTFA and a fantastic opportunity to work across all levels of the national side.
“We are proud that the Avec brand has been chosen to supply the TTFA in what is our first International Partnership, especially with the overall project that is now starting to take place under the new administration, which was something we really wanted to be a part of.
“We are looking forward to creating and developing the new Kits and Training Wear for the Soca Warriors, and we look forward to ensuring we develop a design that supporters can wear with pride.
“We hope the partnership will bring success both on and off the pitch.”
