Oakville Soccer Club and Umbro team up

“The Oakville Soccer Club is thrilled to welcome back Umbro as the official supplier of custom uniforms and apparel to our Rep program. The entire Umbro team consistently demonstrates their commitment to OSC through the quality of their product, service and willingness to partner to grow the Oakville brand not only locally but throughout soccer in Canada. We believe that this partnership best suits our membership,” said OSC Executive Director Dave Harris of the Club’s partnership with Umbro Canada.

The Oakville Soccer Club is pleased to announce the awarding of the Club’s Rep uniform contract to Umbro Canada.

Umbro, based out of Mississauga, ON and the official supplier of uniforms and apparel for Canada’s National Team program, had held this contract with the OSC for the past four years before becoming the successful bidder during the Club’s 2014 RFP process.

As the successful bidder, Umbro will be responsible for providing custom uniforms and apparel to all OSC Rep players and coaching staff.

On being awarded the four year contract Umbro Canada Vice President Mike Shoemaker said: “We are extremely excited about the opportunity to continue and expand our relationship with the Oakville Soccer Club. We have been deeply rooted in the fabric of OSC for years and view them as a pillar of our business in Canada. As the grassroots brand of soccer in Canada it is important that we maintain and grow relationships with the leaders in the game. Oakville Soccer Club is a true leader in the game. We could not be happier as we look forward to further strengthening our relationship and expanding the reach of OSC and Umbro across the province and country.”
