COLUMBUS SPEAKS, THE NORDECKE, SUPPORTER SUPPLY CO., AND KICKS FOR KIDS ANNOUNCE NEW PARTNERSHIP
Local advocacy platform Columbus Speaks is teaming up with the Nordecke and Supporter Supply Co. to raise funds for Kicks for Kids with the release of an exclusive supporters-section kit.
Columbus, OH April 5th, 2021 — Columbus Speaks announces a new partnership with the Nordecke to design and sell an exclusive fan kit, all to help support Columbus youth and the local community. A portion of the proceeds of each kit sold will be donated to Kicks for Kids, an organization aimed at keeping inner-city kids active and teaching them about soccer.
The kits are available for presale on the Supporter Supply Co. website (www.supportersupply.co) and will be available to order throughout the 2021 MLS season. Direct dollar donations can be made to Kicks For Kids via their website (https://k4kwusa.org/support-us).
Building a strong and connected community is a core belief of Columbus Speaks. Co-founders Tyler and Emily Phillips, fans and season ticket-holders of the Columbus Crew, are excited to begin this partnership with the Nordecke and Supporter Supply Co., who they know to have this same belief within the soccer scene. Being able to directly impact the community—and a younger generation of fans—motivates them as they continue to become more involved with the city, and is a milestone in their progress as a local organization.
The black and yellow fan kit features the Nordecke logo on the upper left chest and debuts the newest design of the Columbus Speaks logo at the center. On the arm of the kit is Ohio’s state flag within a cutout of the state, and the back reads “NORDECKE 96.” The kit pays homage to the “Save the Crew” jersey with light yellow hoops across the body. Be sure to pick up a kit and show your support for the community and the sport that brings us all together. See you at the North Stand!
