The United Football League has partnered with GameWear Team Sports as the UFL's Official Supplier of Uniforms and Practicewear. GameWear will also offer replica jerseys and will sell UFL licensed products to select retailers nationwide. GameWear Team Sports designs, manufactures and markets high-end custom athletic team uniforms and sells directly to consumers.
“The United Football League's goal is to showcase emerging talents and allow them the opportunity to succeed,” said Frank Vuono, COO of the UFL. “GameWear Team Sports is one of the leading athletic uniform outfitters in the country and the company's connection to fostering the growth of youth football is what initially attracted us to them. We are excited to be partnering with a company who has made our League a top priority and has worked diligently to create uniforms that both the players and the fans will be excited about.”
“From the onset, GameWear was intrigued by the UFL's mission of giving deserving players the opportunity to compete while providing quality entertainment for the fans at affordable prices,” said Sam Waksman, President of GameWear. “GameWear prides itself on being innovative, high end and at the same time affordable – traits that could be said about the UFL as well – so we feel this is a perfect match.”
The UFL's “Premiere” season uniforms will be unveiled at press events in Orlando and San Francisco on August 4th and in New York and Las Vegas on August 5th. Pictures of all the uniforms can be viewed on the UFL's website, www.ufl-football.com, beginning August 5th.
In addition to being the UFL's exclusive supplier, GameWear sells uniforms directly to professional athletic leagues, educational institutions, youth and recreational leagues. Direct sales combined with the Company's manufacturing capabilities allow GameWear to deliver high-end custom uniforms faster, with greater customization and significantly better value. GameWear's current product lines encompass custom uniforms, training gear and outerwear across six different sports – football, baseball, softball, hockey, lacrosse and basketball.
