Uniform news!

When FC Buffalo takes the pitch for the 2012 season, they’ll look different and familiar at the same time.

For one thing, we’ve just been contacted by our friends at Rich Products and told that Bob Rich Jr. and company have again decided to sponsor the team via the front of our kit for 2012.

“Bob has made an indelible imprint on our organization, so it’s only fitting that his company’s logo graces the shirts of our players,” said FC Buffalo president Nick Mendola. “You cannot help but be impacted by Bob and the lessons he taught us in putting on the Lord Bedlington Cup remain with us year-round.”

So what’s changed? Well, the boys in blue have inked a deal to produce FC Buffalo-specific kits with a major and historic uniform maker for the game of football/soccer. It’s a multi-year deal and will be announced in the next few weeks. Most importantly, as part of the deal, the company will sell FC Buffalo kits from an online store available nationwide, so you’ll be able to get your hands on a game day shirt just as easily as the players (maybe easier!)

With the season right around the corner and only a scant few season ticket scarves available, unofficial team photographer Nate Benson has gotten into the spirit by posting new photos from last season, one per day, highlighting our supporters on his web site.
