RICHMOND, Va. - The Richmond Kickers unveil their new Adidas primary red kits for the 2021 season. Ukrop's becomes the new front of jersey sponsor for both the pro team. Renewing their partnership, Bon Secours returns as the back of the jersey sponsor.
"We are excited to have Ukrop's on the front of the pro jersey for the first time ever," said Kickers Chairman, Rob Ukrop. "Ukrop's was one of our first partners when the club was founded in 1993, and we are thankful for the continued support as our club continues to strengthen community connections through the beautiful game."
Ukrop's has been a long-time supporter of the Kickers, now moving to the front of the jerseys in 2021. From their roots as a grocery store started in 1937, to beloved national food manufacturer and a local Market Hall of today, Ukrop's has always strived to nourish the lives of our customers and their communities.
"Ukrop's support of soccer began in 1981 with the inaugural Richmond Invitational Indoor Soccer Tournament which attracted top youth teams from outside our region," commented Bobby Ukrop, Chairman and CEO of Ukrop's. "We have been pleased to be involved in helping support the amazing growth in soccer in RVA and sports tourism for more than four decades."
Bon Secours enters their seventh year as a partner of the Kickers.
