The Trinidad & Tobago Football Association (TTFA) will be outfitted by Miami-based sports brand BOL for the next two years.
The T&T teams are currently uniformed with Joma which was agreed by former TTFA President David John-Williams. In their last matches of sporting the Spanish brand they were defeated 7-0 to the United States in a friendly match on January 31, then a comprehensive 3-0 victory against Guyana (March 25) and a disappointing 1-1 draw against Puerto Rico (March 28) in the 2022 Qatar FIFA World Cup Qualifiers.
The Soca Warriors will begin to wear the new uniform as early as June this year. Therefore, the upcoming World Cup Qualifiers between Bahamas (June 5th) and St Kitts and Nevis (June 8th) should be the first games in the new kit.
TTFA Normalization Committee Chairman Robert Hadad said, “The Trinidad and Tobago Football Association believes that this new partnership with BOL Football is a great strategic alliance and opportunity.” Hadad who struck his first uniform deal as a Chairman added, “We look forward to working together to develop products that resonate with the hearts of the players, staff, fans and all Trinbagonians.”
BOL, was founded by Eduardo Acordi, Marco Gandelman, and Tiago Pinto, was developed with the belief that sports can generate value and, most importantly, bring people together and develop more caring and inclusive communities.
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 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.
BOL unveiled distinctly-designed jerseys for another Caribbean 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 are not typically showcased on the international stage.
