SNOHOMISH COUNTY, WA— The Snohomish County Steelheads are among a group of community adult soccer clubs around the country who have turned to Stimulus Athletic (Minneapolis) to give them a fresh custom look in their uniforms.
The result of the collaboration is a set of kits that capture the spirit of SnoCo FC’s Steelheads image and celebrate the club’s strong, vibrant color choices. Now the start-up side is casting for a shirt sponsor to make the them a reality.
“We really love how the kit designs turned out,” says Steelheads FC General Manager David Falk. “They give us something to work for both on and off the pitch.” The images of the kits were an instant hit on Twitter as the Steelheads saw their followers on the social media site go up by over 10% after the kits were revealed on March 20. “Now we know we have a winning template. What we need next is a sponsor to help us get them.” The kits are sublimated, meaning the images and sponsor logo will be part of the fabric itself. This allows for a seamless look, but also means the sponsor is on the shirt for the life of the kit.
“We are hoping to have a Snohomish-area business step up and meet our $2,500 offer on the front of our shirts,” Falk says. “That will basically cover the cost of 2 color choices. We’d love to have them as soon as possible, but for sure for league play when that happens in 2019.”
This year the Steelheads will hit the pitch in orange kits with black accents and all black shorts. In the future they know what they are working for. “We want to have that professional custom look for our players and our club,” Falk says, “so we know we need to work on the business side of the Steelheads even as the players are working on the soccer side.”
