Phoenix Rising FC reveals 2018 uniforms, announces new sponsor
The Phoenix Rising Football Club revealed its new uniforms Friday, showcasing the club’s three new jerseys and front sponsor.
The new uniforms were showcased at the Marquee Theater in Tempe, giving fans the opportunity to get a first-hand look at the new merchandise for the club.
Along with the team’s orange kit, a red, black and white set of uniforms were all unveiled, as well as a blue kit for goaltenders.
On the front of the uniforms is the club’s newest sponsor, Carvana, an eCommerce platform for buying used cars. The agreement between the Rising and Carvana to become the front of jersey sponsor was announced ahead of the uniform unveiling on Friday, and will run through the 2020 season.
“We are honored to be partnering with such an innovative and forward-thinking company such as Carvana,” Bobby Dulle, Chief Operating Officer for Phoenix Rising FC said in a release.
“Their business philosophy is a lot like ours, and we are both in rapid growth phases, so it is a perfect partnership. We also love that they are a locally headquartered company looking for new ways to connect with our community.”
The club announced special promotional giveaways throughout the 2018 season as part of the new agreement, including a car giveaway on May 4 during the Rising’s match with the L.A. Galaxy.
The match will also be “blackout” themed, with the first 3,000 fans receiving a Phoenix Rising t-shirt provided by Carvana.
The Phoenix Rising kick off their 2018 campaign on March 17 at the Orange County SC, with the home opener scheduled for Saturday, March 24 at 7 p.m. against the OKC Energy FC.
