The Biggest Club You’ve Never Heard Of™

BOSTON, MA – (Jan. 23, 2019) – ’47, a global sports lifestyle brand, and Asbury Park Football Club, New Jersey’s second-best soccer club, today unveiled the first of several  collaborations as part of an exclusive sponsorship deal. With a collection of hats, hoodies and tees commemorating the rich history of Asbury Park F.C., the launch collection delivers the high standard of quality and style that fans have come to expect from the two iconic brands. The collection is the first of several A.P.F.C. packs to be released throughout the 2019 season.


“As a club, Asbury Park F.C. is committed to authenticity in soccer,” says Shawn Francis, A.P.F.C. Co-Chairman. “There are few brands in sport more authentic than ’47 so to have them join the A.P.F.C. family as our newest partner defies all logic is a perfect fit.”


Fellow Club Co-Chairman Ian Perkins echos the sentiment. “Obviously, a club of our stature would only partner with the best. As for why they would partner with us, I haven’t got a clue, mate.“


Items featured in the launch collection include the Club’s sinking ship-centered “Run Aground” logo and the classic Tillie-adorned badge. Available headwear silhouettes include the ’47 CAPTAIN (structured, flat visor, snapback), ’47 CLEAN UP(unstructured, curved visor, adjustable), and a ’47 Cuff Knit beanie. Additionally, a selection of complimentery tees and hoodies are also available.


Asbury Park Football Club x ’47 product will be available beginning January 23 exclusively at asburyparkfc.com.
