VICTORIA, British Columbia--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The World’s Leading Independent Sportswear Brand DRYWORLD INDUSTRIES is pleased to announce a record 5-year manufacturing partnership deal with Brazilian giants Fluminense FC.
The contract is the most valuable to be signed in the last 5 years in Brazil, highlighting a remarkable rise to the top of the sports market place for the young brand hailing from the west coast of Canada.
A club both traditional and pioneering, Fluminense is the first club in Brazil to announce a new partnership with DRYWORLD for the supply of sports equipment starting in February 2016.
In addition to a significant investment from DRYWORLD, Fluminense also profits by valuing advancement in sport science and the enterprising nature of innovative products designed specifically for their athletes, which DRYWORLD brings to the club and market.
“Fluminense has always been characterized as a pioneering club. This is how we work. Thinking about the best for the club, innovating without fear of challenges. Fluminense and DRYWORLD share the idea of being innovative and winners together,” said club president Peter Siemsen.
And with a special dedication to Fluminense, DRYWORLD is preparing to launch even more technology in the global sports market starting in the heart of Rio de Janeiro. The company’s new DRYSKYN technology was developed specifically for the climate of Brazil, supporting the athlete by stabilizing their heat signature, managing moisture and allowing the athlete to move freely.
“The launch of DRYWORLD in Brazil is the first and most important step toward leveraging our brand in the global market, while we bring a new quality and innovation for the Brazilian market,” said Matt Weingart, Co-Founder of DRYWORLD.
Early indications on social media suggest that the new partnership comes with the blessings and well wishes from the hearts of the most passionate fans in the world.
“By becoming partners with an illustrious club such as Fluminense FC and the loyal fans, who have a very rich history with football in Brazil, we believe DRYWORLD can become part of the DNA of the sport and a valued part of the culture,” added Brian McKenzie, Co-Founder of DRYWORLD.
With even more news already set for release, 2016 is due to be a banner year for the Canadian brand.
