Fury FC Launch Kit Selection Campaign
 
Have Your Say at OttawaFuryFC.com
From August 24 Through September 8 
 

 

Ottawa Fury FC today announced the launch of their kit selection campaign that will run August 24 through September 8 at OttawaFuryFC.com. The announcement came during the Fury FC 'Extra Time' event at a packed Berryman Pub where three designs were unveiled to fans anxiously awaiting the next stage in the branding of Fury FC.
 

"We want our fans to be an integral part of the process of building the Fury FC brand," said Fury FC President, John Pugh.  "Having helped us choose both our name and logo, what better way to involve our supporters than asking for their input in selecting our inaugural season kit, the colours Ottawa's team and our fans will proudly wear in the 2014 NASL season. We look forward to your input".

 

Since announcing their equipment and apparel partnership with Admiral Sports on July 16, Fury FC and Admiral have collaborated to generate kit designs that carry the club colours of black, red and white as well as a watermarked flame - a symbol taken from the Fury FC crest. Each kit will also feature the NASL logo on the left sleeve, a patch of the Canadian flag beneath the collar on the back of the jersey along with AdmiralSports.com across the bottom of the back of the jersey. The Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group (OSEG) logo on the front is a temporary placeholder for a front of jersey sponsor that is yet to be named.

 

"Thanks to our partners at Admiral for coming up with three designs which are sure to generate some lively debate amongst our fans," commented Pugh.

 

The kit selection campaign will close at midnight on Sunday, September 8 at which time Fury FC management will review the results and feedback.

Following this boisterous those in attendance were given an update on Fury FC as well as the development of Lansdowne. While those in attendance were anxious to see the new Fury FC kit designs, they would have to wait as the crowd enjoyed some LIVE NASL action as the New York Cosmos entertained the San Antonio Scorpions. The Cosmos certainly entertained the crowd in attendance with an outstanding opening goal and a late winner to down the visiting Scorpions 2-1. 

 

The real excitement, however, came at halftime as the kit selection campaign was officially launched as those in attendance were the first to see the three design options (pictured, left).
