Tottenham Hotspur have released their new Third Shirt for the 2012/13 season from Under Armour – and have done so in a unique way! Spurs and Under Armor unveiled the new kit with the help of EA Sports and their upcoming release – FIFA 13. The new kit is first seen in gameplay footage, which features White Hart Lane, from EA Sports Fifa 13 which launches September 28th.
Packed with the latest performance technology, the Spurs Mens Third Shirt features Lightweight HeatGear® fabric which delivers soft comfort and allows for freer movement to ensure you are not held back. The Third Shirt also comes with underarm and upper back mesh panels designed to help your body breathe in addition to Signature Moisture Transport System that wicks sweat away from the body meaning you are left drier and fresher for longer.
To maintain freshness of your Mens Third Top, Spurs and Under Armour have forged Anti-odor technology in to the sinews of the shirt. This technology prevents the growth of odor causing microbes ensuring that your shirt retains that fresh “new shirt” feel. Added Strategic venting provides airflow where you need it most and combined with a Smooth flatlock seam construction which delivers chafe-free motion, this Third Shirt is constructed to keep you comfortable and competitive. The Third goalkeeper jersey is Yellow.
Supporters can purchase the third kit now, exclusively, at tottenhamhotspur.com/shop.
Under Armour have unveiled the new Home and Away kits for Tottenham Hotspur Football Club ahead of the 2012/2013 Season. The new Tottenham Hotspur performance and apparel ranges are Under Armour’s first kit supply agreement with a Barclays Premier League team and represents the brand’s largest team sponsorship to date. The kit launch also marks the start of Under Armour’s five-year collaboration as technical partner to Tottenham Hotspur.
Tottenham Hotspur new Under Armour kits epitomise the Club’s motto: “To Dare Is To Do.” The all white home kits and classic navy blue away kits integrate the brand’s signature apparel innovations, specifically designed to enhance player performance, with the Club’s distinct heritage and on-pitch accomplishments.
In addition to the authentic performance range, Tottenham Hotspur supporters will also be able to don a replica version with a number of the same technology features that will help Spurs players perform their best in training and on match day.
Commenting on launch of Tottenham Hotspur’s new Under Armour Kit, Daniel Levy, Chairman, Tottenham Hotspur said: “With the Club about to move into a new state-of-the-art Training Centre, the launch of this partnership with Under Armour comes at a very exciting time for us. Not only are they one of the most exciting brands in world sport, but Under Armour also has a reputation for performance and technical excellence and this is demonstrated by the fantastic kit they have designed for this coming season.”
“Today is a defining moment for the Under Armour brand as we debut our new kits for Tottenham Hotspur Football Club,” said Kevin Plank, Founder and CEO, Under Armour. “Tottenham has a tremendous heritage and a passion for winning that makes them the perfect match for our brand. This partnership will introduce millions of football fans around the world to our innovative performance apparel, footwear and accessories that are designed to help all athletes perform better.”
The base textile of the shirts is fabricated of razor-thin Under Armour HeatGear® stretch woven, capable of keeping the players lighter and drier than their opponents. Both the home and away kit shorts share the same HeatGear® stretch woven. The stretch woven allows complete fluidity of motion for the players’ strike and stride with great stretch performance benefits.
In order to maximise this revolutionary fabric on-pitch, the authentic Tottenham Hotspur range as worn by the players will have a distinct, aggressive look with the shirts cut to Under Armour’s Fitted Fit, close to the body for optimal moisture management, breathability, and performance. A tailored collar and placket brings smartness and timelessness to the home shirt, whilst silver taping in both kits adds elevated design to the shoulders, back-neck, and sleeve. A fully perforated Tottenham Hotspur cockerel design decorates the back panel of the white kit for optimal heat dumping. Built in a classic V-neck style, a laser cut sublimated back panel on the away shirts brings to life inspirational elements of White Hart Lane. Both shirts are equipped with side mesh panel insets to create the ventilation necessary to perform at a world-class level. A ventilated back yoke adds breathability to both the home and away shorts.
The new Home goalkeeper jersey is navy blue and light blue and features a v-neck collar. The Away goalkeeper jersey is green and features a smart collar. Both keepers jerseys boast the same performance technology as the outfield kits.
The new Home and Away kits by Under Armour are available now from Tottenhamhotspur.com
Under Armour’s Blur Pro failed to have a major impact on the speed boot market. However, launching in two eye-catching colourways, we may be about to see the American giants grab some more attention with the improved Blur Pro II.
The two biggest changes are a more supportive ankle area as well as a tweaked toebox that improves contact with the ball.
The seamless micro-fibre upper designed to form to the shape of the foot from the Blur Pro remains. As does the smooth finish providing better ball control while the perforation on the upper makes way making the new Blur Pro II more waterproof.
A lightweight Pebax outsole features ‘Outrigger’ suds for greater stability, support and traction. UA’s Micro G cushioning reduces stud pressure and 4D foam forms to foot over time to provide optimal comfort.
The Under Armour Blur Pro is available in two great looking colourways; Black/Capri/Sun Bleached and Velocity/Black/Red.
Under Armour have released their new Create Pro II speed boot. The American-based company rose to prominence with the release of their base layers. Now UA boots have slowly begun to make a name for themselves in the Premier League with the likes of Bobby Zamora, Paul Robinson and Daniel Agger all sporting UA boots.
Under Armour is a company dedicated to improving performance through technology and innovation and that can be seen in the new Create Pro II. Some of the featured technologies on the new UA Create Pro II are:
- Structured support provided through a lateral frame.
- Lightweight DS30 Microfiber upper increases speed.
- Strategically placed perforations allow for optimal breathability and moisture control.
- ArmourForm® footbed moulds to the foot and provides optimal comfort and reduces cleat pressure.
- A lateral extension of the outsole that enhances the foot’s ability to remain on the chassis of the outsole.
-Modular Protection Zones (MPZ): durable lightweight protection at key contact points without sacrificing needed compression support.
The bottom line is that UA have developed a speed boot that offers you great protection and comfort. They may have sacrificed some weight in the process however. The current mark is around 150g while these are closer to 230g. The Create Pro II come in a choice of White/Black/Blue or Green/Black/Silver:
Don’t forget about UA’s flagship boot – the Dominate Pro which has proven to be a great success.
Under Armour’s influence in South Africa’s local football league (the PSL – Premier Soccer League) is also increasing. UA sponsor triple title winners SuperSport United as well as provide boots for the likes of:
Anthony Laffor (SuperSport United – Liberia)
Warren Bishop (Amazulu)
Mark Haskin (Wits)
Mabuti Khanyezi (Sundowns)
Brian Baloyi (Sundowns)
Papi Mongomeni (Sundowns)
Thabo September (Super Sport)
Noah Chivutah (Maritzburg – Zambia)
Tsepho Motsoeneng (Santos)
The Create Pro II are available in selected store around South Africa now.
The much anticipated arrival of Under Armour’s new X designed Core Shorts in South Africa is here. Under Armour claim they are the future of compression shorts and most reviews rate them the best compression shorts on the market.
UA Coreshort’s patented X design, which had almost two decades of research invested in the design, delivers support across the entire core (hips, groin, pelvis, quads, hamstrings) to boost speed and muscular performance.
The UA HeatGear® (which keeps athletes cool, dry, and light during warm weather) and UA Innovation technology (Odor control and Ultraviolet protection) is what separates these Core Shorts from the rest of the competition.
UA Core shorts are worn by athletes from any sporting code from, professional hockey to baseball, football, rugby, tennis or soccer.
Under Armour invite you to forget about injury and expect energy in return as you: ‘Believe in the X!’
UA also introduce the new ‘Recharge’. The full body base layer is designed to re-energize your body for the next game or workout. The ‘Dynamic Casting Effect’ aligns and stabilizes muscles so they can repair themselves better. It is designed to target muscles to reduce swelling and decrease pain time.
UA say that for the best results you should:
• Wear RECHARGE™ top & bottom together for 24 hours.
• Wear RECHARGE™ Compression within 2 hours post-game or post-workout.
UA’s own mission statement is to; ‘Make all athletes better through passion, science and the relentless pursuit of innovation.’ The Recharge was tested on male and female athletes who trained in conditions equal to or surpassing the severity of an NCAA-level (American) football game.
