South Melbourne FC is excited to announce a partnership with Linebreak that will see the emerging Australian compression supplier become the Club’s Official Compression Partner for the next three seasons.
Linebreak also becomes a Principal Partner of both SMFC Senior teams (men and women), with their players to be fitted in new compression gear from next season.
Linebreak is committed to producing world-class compression garments that assist professional athletes in reaching a new level of recovery and performance. SMFC joins Newcastle Jets (A-League), Adelaide United (A-League), Brisbane Roar (A-League) Queensland Reds and Rugby Union (Super Rugby), and Touch Football Australia as one of the marquee Australian brands associated with Linebreak. The company has also provided garments for a number of football clubs worldwide, including to players from Liverpool, Chelsea, West Bromwich Albion and other EPL players, plus a host of other athletes and sports codes locally and internationally.
Speaking with smfc.com.au, Linebreak Managing Director Wilf Robinson was elated to be joining the SMFC family. “South Melbourne is an iconic club in Australian football and we are extremely proud to be on board as the Official Compression Partner for the next three seasons. South’s vision and direction really excites us and we are thrilled to do our bit to support the players and management as the club strives for big things in the near future.”
SMFC Operations Manager George Kouroumalis was equally excited with the new partnership. “We are very proud to partner up with an emerging quality brand for the next three seasons that supports both our Senior men and our Senior women. We are excited to see the product development plans, and the real gains that SMFC players and club members can achieve through use of the Linebreak gear. We are confident that the whole extended SMFC family will be delighted with the access this deal provides. We can’t wait to share those details with our membership in the coming days.”
