FC Buffalo is thrilled to announce the continuation of our title partnership with Rich Products through the 2015 season.

“We are incredibly grateful to highlight the Rich’s brand for another season, and that the generous partnership with Rich Products will help us continue to grow our tradition in our shared hometown,” said FC Buffalo co-owner and general manager Nick Mendola. “We strive to be the best we can be on-and-off the pitch, an example set for us by Bob Rich, his family and his company.”

The Rich Products logo has adorned the front of FC Buffalo kits since 2011, when the two parties entertained another soccer club sponsored by the corporation, the Bedlington Terriers of England’s Northern League, for the first ever Lord Bedlington Cup. The competition is named after Bob Rich, who on a lark was given the title of Lord of Bedlington by his wife Mindy (the Rich family traces its roots back to Northern England).

The Rich family welcomed FC Buffalo’s ownership to leadership, promotional and organizational meetings leading up to the event, won by FCB and attended by 3700 at Robert E. Rich All-High Stadium in Buffalo. We should also mention they threw a magnificent party at their Canadian estate that included a squash lesson for Joshua, Scott and Nick from Bob Rich himself.
