Great Annual Savings Group (GAS) is proud once again to be the principal partner of Sunderland Association Football Club (SAFC) for the 2021/22 season.
The continuation of the partnership will see the GAS brand once more emblazoned on the front of club’s famous red and white shirt, as well as the new away shirt.
The cost saving expert has a long-standing relationship with the club, having helped them with energy and legislative obligations, as well as becoming a long-term supporter of the Foundation of Light.
Craig Shields, Operations Director at GAS, said: “We have worked with the club since 2017 and are excited to play our part in what we believe is an exciting new chapter for all.
“We are not only committed to supporting the club, but the region as a whole. This passion was the fundamental driving force behind the launch of the Group’s GF Community Foundation, a new charity restoring hope and support across the North East and our Wearside-focused recruitment drive.
“Fans are ultimately the heart and soul of any football club, which made last season tough for everyone, but we can’t wait to see the fans return to the Stadium of Light in the forthcoming campaign.”
Sunderland AFC’s 2021-22 Nike home kit will be available via the official SAFC store ahead of the new campaign.
Inspired by the club’s first Nike kit worn from 1983 to 1986, the remixed design also takes elements from the club’s 1995-97 away strip and 2009-10 home shirt.
The hybrid design features a white base to provide an 80s’ vibe, with the fading stripes throwing back to SAFC’s yellow Avec shirt from the mid-90s.
Echoes of the club’s 2009-10 shirt also subtly influence the bespoke design, as a large abstract crest adorns the front of the garment.
