Forge FC fans have exclusive access to away kits by joining ‘The Collective’ prior to August 6
Today, the Canadian Premier League (CPL) and official league technical provider, Macron, a leader in the international teamwear market, unveiled the 2020 season Away custom-designed playing kits for the Canadian Premier League eight clubs Forge FC, HFX Wanderers FC, Atletico Ottawa, York9 FC, Valour FC, FC Edmonton, Cavalry FC and Pacific FC squads.
The League’s second season is no different than the inaugural season when it comes to kit design. Each kit’s look incorporates the symbolism and identity of the club within the design with a unique spin for 2020. This season all eight club Away kits focus in a new direction. Collectively all eight “City Edition” Away kits are all black (jersey, shorts and socks) and each club jersey design is connected by a theme that is unique and special to their city identity and is distinguished by the unique stories behind the design.
These kits were designed before everyone’s lives were changed by COVID-19 however, now, the design theme is even more relevant – celebrating your city and demonstrating city pride is more important than ever.
2020 Forge FC Away Kit:
Inspired by Hamilton’s Gore Park Fountain, Forge FC’s jersey is a nod to the city’s sense of community and the diverse arts and culture movement. The city of Hamilton pride is highlighted on the back of the jersey with their iconic vibrant orange incorporated throughout the jersey details.
The Canadian Premier League 2019 Champions will be sporting the Gold Champion Patch this season and the team’s jersey sponsor remains Tim Hortons.
“Thanks to our amazing partners at Macron, we’re extremely proud of the Forge FC away kit and how it encapsulates our great community and an amazing landmark in Hamilton,” said Matt Afinec, President and Chief Operating Officer of Forge FC. “We’re excited to make these kits available exclusively to our Co-Founders and season seat holders who join ‘The Collective’ before August 6.”
