Western Sydney Wanderers are excited to announce JD Sports as the club’s co-major front of shirt partner for the Hyundai A-League 2018/19 season.
JD Sports, the undisputed ‘King of Trainers’, have quickly grown their partnership with the Wanderers commencing their involvement with the Red & Black at the sold-out 83,221 strong crowd for the Wanderers versus Arsenal game at ANZ Stadium in July 2017.
The partnership will see JD Sport’s iconic insignia on the front of the Wanderers Hyundai A-League 2018/19 Away and yet-to-be released 3rd kits.
A global brand quickly establishing an extensive retail footprint across Western Sydney, JD Sport adds another level to the Wanderers connection to the regions thriving youth demographic.
Western Sydney Wanderers CEO John Tsatsimas said the evolution of the club’s partnership with JD Sports was a testament to our strong youth audience.
“JD Sports expansion into the Western Sydney market has been phenomenal and their place in youth sports culture is unquestionable,” said Tsatsimas.
“We are very excited to have JD Sports on our Away and highly anticipated new 3rd kit that we look forward to bringing to life with them and our foundation partner Nike very soon.”
