Essendon Football Club is excited to announce it has signed three new apparel partners for the 2017 season.

The Bombers players were greeted with their new ISC, SKINS and New Era apparel at today’s first training session of the pre-season.

SKINS has signed on as the Club’s Official Compression Partner for the next three seasons and will supply the team with training and playing compression technology garments.

SKINS Executive Chairman, Jaimie Fuller, said he is proud to partner with the Club after witnessing the on and off-field changes which have taken place over the past season.

“We believe Essendon is truly committed to not only changing its game but also recognising the role they can play in changing the game. That’s something we are proud to sponsor and stand behind,” Fuller said.

“We at SKINS believe it’s about more than how far you have fallen.  It’s about how you can inspire others in the way you rise back up.

“To us, that is the essence of sport.  That is ultimately what we all play for and, indeed, what we live for.”

Essendon CEO, Xavier Campbell, welcomed the three leading and progressive apparel brands to the Essendon family.

“We are extremely pleased ISC, SKINS and New Era will be part of our comeback story,” Campbell said.

“These are three innovative and progressive sports brands, and their decision to partner with Essendon is an important step in the future direction of our Club.

“This is the first time we have segmented our apparel partnerships, and we are excited about the benefits the new range will deliver from a performance and retail perspective.

“The range of on-field apparel, compression technology and headwear is dynamic, and we look forward to seeing our players, coaches, staff and supporters wearing it over the course of the 2017 season and beyond.”
