During the past three years, AEK used Nike as their official kit sponsor, however the Athenians opted to make a change this summer and team-up with Capelli Sport for the upcoming campaign. When announcing the deal back in early June, founder of Capelli Sport George Altirs had this to say: “AEK FC is an internationally recognized football club with great heritage and such passionate fans. For Capelli Sport, the aim of this partnership is to grow the brand together with the club in the European and local football industry. The prospect of AEK FC’s new stadium construction is going to be the point of reference in our first period of partnership.”
Established in the USA in 2011, Capelli Sport produced the kits for clubs such as Panachaiki, MSV Duisburg, FSV Frankfurt and Penn FC in the 2017/2018 season.
On Friday, the Kitrinomavri revealed the jersey designs which will be used for the 2018/2019 season in Greece and Europe. Sticking to traditions, the club’s yellow and black colours are the dominant feature on the home kit, as three large black stripes are placed on a yellow background. The shorts and socks are black:
