“Under Armour shares similar values to us in that they achieve success through a combination of hard-work and strategic thinking. At Southampton, our determination to succeed is accompanied by a commitment to develop athletes as people, and this partnership reflects this. Our challenge now is to retain our ‘underdog’ mentality whilst entering a sustained period of success,” said Ralph Krueger, Chairman of Southampton FC.
