Phenom Elite, a start-up based in Philadelphia, reached an agreement to provide uniforms to six teams in the Arena Football League (AFL).
At a media event at the Capital One Arena in Washington D.C, new uniforms were presented for all of the teams in the league, including the Albany Empire, Atlantic City Blackjacks, Baltimore Brigade, Columbus Destroyers, Philadelphia Soul and the Washington Valor. Remarks were also provided by Randall Boe, AFL commissioner, Nathan Dorton, CEO of Phenom Elite, Ted Leonsis, CEO of Monumental Sports, and Ron Jaworski, chairman of the AFL Executive Committee.
“Phenom elite has designed exciting uniforms for the AFL that fit perfectly with the league’s fast-paced, exciting, high-scoring games,” said Boe.
Teams had the opportunity to design their respective uniforms in a distinctly unique manner, incorporating their own original concepts. To ensure long-lasting quality, the new uniform designs were all dyed directly onto the jerseys and pants to prevent cracks, peels or fading.
“Growing up, I was always a fan of the Arena Football League, so to have the opportunity to collaborate with them on this initiative is really special,” said Nathan Dorton, CEO of Phenom Elite. “We’re honored to be working with a professional organization of this caliber, and look forward to seeing the new uniforms in action during the upcoming season.”
The AFL’s 32nd season officially kicks off April 26th and 27th.
