BOL will design fresh kits for Trinidad and Tobago as part of a two year partnership between the Miami-based sports brand and the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association (TTFA), the brand announced today.
The apparel brand will begin its process of creating new art-inspired kits that will be released in June to help elevate the Caribbean nation to the next level during the Qatar 2022 qualifiers.
Trinidad and Tobago joined CONCACAF and FIFA nearly 70 years ago. Since then their men’s national team has become a top team in the region, qualifying for FIFA World Cup 2006 Germany, winning eight Caribbean Cups and finishing third in one Gold Cup. Their youth teams have qualified for two FIFA U-20 World Cups and a FIFA U-17 World Cup. They have also hosted a FIFA Men’s and Women’s U-17 World Cup.
“We want our new kits to exude the confidence, strength and bravery of this team,” said Tiago Pinto, former Nike executive and co-founder of BOL. “We believe in celebrating the beautiful game and our hope is supporters around the world will find that same joy through our apparel designs.”
BOL unveiled distinctly-designed jerseys for another Carribean island nation, Montserrat, last month, each team telling its own story. The brand is on a mission to share the emotional journeys of men’s, women’s, and youth teams that aren’t typically showcased on the international stage.
“The Trinidad and Tobago Football Association believes that this new partnership with BOL Football is a great strategic alliance and opportunity,” said TTFA Normalization Committee Chairman Robert Hadad. “We look forward to working together to develop products that resonate with the hearts of the players, staff, fans and all Trinbagonians.”
The team has been performing well in the 2022 World Cup Qualifiers, beating Guyana 3-0 and tying with Puerto Rico in March. In June, Trinidad and Tobago will be facing important matches against Bahamas on June 5 and Saint Kitts and Nevis three days later.
BOL will equally incentivize Trinidad and Tobago for the performance achievements of both the Men’s and Women’s National Teams in order to recognise TTFA’s efforts and vision for the future of all. An extensive annual product collection will be provided au gratis and the deal will also include a revenue sharing program for team branded products sold around the world.
Game day, training, and goalkeeper jerseys will be available for purchase after the new jerseys are released this summer on BOL’s official site
