Message from the club to Supporters' Groups:
Adidas & Supporters Group Collaboration
We are working in conjunction with Adidas to develop our 2019 TFC kit (Red Jersey). As part of this process we are considering having a supporters designed input into one of our designated areas that we can add a unique element to (Back of neck, or jock tag). With this said, our idea is to collaborate with each of our supporters groups in a session with the Adidas designer, in order to come up with some form of design that would represent our supporters, or our fans. This could take a number of forms, potentially logo inclusion or an entirely new design. That is all to come about as part of the collaboration.
If interested in this opportunity, we have asked that each supporters group be represented by one person, in a session that would be held up at the Adidas studio in Vaughan. Please confirm if your group would be interested in working on this project.
TSN + Supporters Feature Collaboration
We have been approached by TSN on a project where they would like to create a number of features on our fans, specifically our supporters and telling that story across their digital channels. We are not sure the exact format / output this would take, however we are getting the ball rolling. This would be a series of pieces that will bring to life the uniqueness of supporters culture and how our fans celebrate our team/soccer. While I don’t know the entire storyline, it could be a “day in the life of” on a game day, or it could be TSN following along for a banner painting session, and sit down with a number of key supporters to tell the story. It was discussed last night that some may have a preference for someone like Clay to produce it. If so, just include that in your comments back to me.
We have asked each supporters group be represented and to identify if there is an interest to participate. As we think longer term about recruitment, I think that this could be another avenue to grow the interest in supporters culture and involvement.
Please respond in the thread with your feedback or desire to be involved (if any). Feel free to contact me directly if you have any questions or concerns. The club is looking for a response by next Friday, August 17th. -- Jambo.
