Dilley studio is proud to announce a multi-year agreement with Columbus Crew of Major League Soccer to become the On-Field Kit Consultant for the club.
The new agreement, which will see Dilley Studio act as a design consultant for the club’s playing kits and training wear for the 2022 season onwards, allows The Crew access to knowledge and expertise of the football kit creation process and ensures clarity when working alongside their licensed apparel suppliers.
The multi-year agreement marks a watershed moment for Dilley Studio. It is not only the first multi-year deal for the company, but it is also the first step back into football for Founder, Marcus Dilley. With growth on the horizon and a company ethos of challenging usual conventions, it is significant to see a major club like Columbus invest in the impact that this consultancy will bring.
Marcus said of the agreement, “The Crew’s story is packed with as much history as is possible within MLS. From becoming the first team back in 1996, to the first football specific stadium in North America in 1999, the Crew has rich history as the League’s Charter Member and has an exciting next 25 years on the horizon. With a new ownership group, front office, coaching staff and of course state-of-the-art stadium and training facility projects in progress, Columbus Crew and the Haslam Sports Group have looked at ways to improve every aspect of the club. This constant self-evaluation is key and one of the main reasons I am excited to work with the club. It has been really positive working alongside them so far and I look forward to diving further into Columbus culture as we roll on.”
“Columbus Crew SC is excited about our partnership with Marcus Dilley and Dilley Studio as a design consultant for our team jerseys and training gear in 2022 and beyond,” said Columbus Crew SC Executive Vice President and Chief Business Officer Steve Lyons. “The team jersey is the most visible asset of our Club. It was critical that the new design be authentic to our fans and the people of Columbus while representing our bold vision for the future. Through our partnership with Dilley Studio, we were able to create a look and feel for our jersey design that will be instantly recognisable as Columbus and of which our players, our fans and our sponsor will be incredibly proud.”
