on

Mumbai: Renowned sportswear and sports equipment brand TYKA has become an official kit partner for the Euro T20 Slam that is going to take place in The Netherlands, Scotland and Ireland between August 30 and  September 22 this year.

TYKA, which has been associated with Indian Premier League (IPL) teams like Kings XI Punjab, Sunrisers Hyderabad, Gujarat Lions (now defunct) and several soccer clubs, has come on board for the next three years.

All six franchises of Euro T2o Slam—Edinburgh Rocks, Glasgow Giants, Rotterdam Rhinos, Amsterdam Knights, Belfast Titans and Dublin Chiefs—will be seen wearing TYKA manufactured and branded kits.

Promoter Amit Singh of Woods Entertainment confirming the development said, “We are elated to welcome TYKA as our official kit partner for the next three years. TYKA has had a great experience of working with the IPL franchises and soccer clubs, and that will surely help them create world class fabric and kits for the top cricketers. They have always cared about the playing conditions, so if its sweat resistant fabric for the summer tournament in India, it could very well be a different kind of warm fabric for the Euro T20 Slam. I am sure that TYKA’s R&D team will put in a great effort in making the most fashionable kits for the players.”

TYKA MD Rajan Kohli said, “We see a lot of potential in the Euro T20 Slam and are excited to begin our relationship from the inception of the league itself. We feel that the league is not just perfect for the players of Ireland, Scotland and the Netherlands but it’s also a great platform for brands like us to come and showcase our work to this part of the world.”

After gaining a remarkable fan base in Delhi, the brand brought the globally acclaimed concept to the Creators in Mumbai, giving the football freaks in the city a never seen before avenue to explore.

The league, is a celebration of the city’s street football culture and is an aim to encourage young talent to chase their passion for the game.

Staying true to their belief of ‘changing lives through the power of sports’, adidas also hosted teams from Dharavi at the League thereby furthering their efforts to level the playing field.

Apart from enjoying a highly competitive and intense football tournament, young footballers also got to test their skills in the 1V1 Panna cage battles and 60-second skill circuits, which garnered a lot of attention amongst the players present there.

Present at the event, Indian footballer and adidas asset Robin Singh said: “The adidas Tango League is an extremely popular urban football concept in India and across the globe. I wish I had something like this when I was growing up in football. With brands like adidas coming forward and facilitating such grass root efforts, the league is a boost for city amateurs”

As the global leader in football, adidas continues to promote and nurture grass-root football in India by bringing innovative concepts to bring football closer to Indians. adidas Tango League serves as the most disruptive hunt for the amateur players that standout both on and off the pitch.
