Uniforms represented an important piece to the “look good, feel good, play good” idea. When we started on this journey, we vetted 3 uniform providers. All 3 brought their own strengths. 2 of them represented smaller brands and the other was a very large brand. We narrowed it down to Kelme and Capelli Sport. After some negotiations, we selected Kelme and expected a long-term partnership. Well, Covid-19 created quite a problem for Kelme. Kelme is based in Spain and their warehouse shut-down, employees lost their jobs and our plan stalled out. We quickly pivoted to Capelli Sport, who was a close second in our negotiations.
“Capelli Sport has a great lineup of high quality products,” said Sporting Director Adam DeClerico. “They are based in the US and very easy to work with. Our teams at NextGen will feel great in the collaborate designs and we can’t wait to get them outfitted.”
