Toronto, ON – (July 30, 2020) – Today, the Canadian Premier League (CPL) and official league technical provider, Macron, a leader in the international teamwear market, unveils the 2020 season Away custom-designed playing kits for the Canadian Premier League eight clubs HFX Wanderers FC, Atletico Ottawa, York9 FC, Forge FC, Valour FC, FC Edmonton, Cavalry FC and Pacific FC squads.
The League’s second season is no different than the inaugural season when it comes to kit design. Each kit’s look incorporates the symbolism and identity of the club within the design with a unique spin for 2020. This season all eight club Away kits focus in a new direction. Collectively all 8 “City Edition” Away kits are all black (jersey, shorts and socks) and each club jersey design is connected by a theme that is unique and special to their city identity and is distinguished by the unique stories behind the design.
These kits were designed before everyone’s lives were changed by COVID-19 however, now, the design theme is even more relevant – celebrating your city and demonstrating city pride is more important than ever.
The team-authentic City Edition Away jerseys by Macron are available now online for purchase for $119.99 CAD (Men’s), and $79.99 CAD (Youth). Fans will be able to customize each jersey with either their favourite player or own names and number for an additional $34.99 CAD.
Every jersey features the league’s mission “For Canadians, By Canadians” on the inside neck – an everyday reminder of why this league exists and to inspire our mission to grow the beautiful game of soccer in Canada.
The new icon of the Italian brand, the Macron Hero characterizes and identifies the technical garments. The logo features the human body and takes inspiration from the tip of the spear, by definition a representation of dynamos and speed. The Macron Hero symbolizes even more effectively the joy at the end of the challenge, the achievement of a target, fatigue, passion and determination and epitomizes the Macron philosophy: “Work hard. Play harder”.
Valour FC’s away jersey design is inspired by Winnipeg’s skyline and iconic landmarks including the Provencher Bridge, Canadian Museum for Human Rights and Fort Garry Place. The back of the jersey showcases Valour’s city pride with the Winnipeg shout-out in sublimated print in harvest gold. The jersey also has hints of a dark shade of red, white and harvest gold.
