European retail Forex broker AFX Capital is expanding further its sponsorship efforts in the football area, with FC Chiasso, a Swiss football club sponsored by the broker, presenting its new team kit with the corporate logo.
FC Chiasso hosted a press conference on Wednesday, July 22, 2015, to unveil the new home and away kits for the 2015-2016 season, featuring the AFX Capital logo. The new squad was also presented to the reporters and public attending the event.
Both the new home and away kits feature a unique design, with the AFX Capital logo, with the company’s official gold and black colours, appearing in the centre of the team’s jersey. FC Chiasso have debut the new strip on July 26, 2015 at their home stadium in their opening league game win against FC Schaffausen.
FC Chiasso’s fans had an exciting afternoon at the club’s new premises, with their favourite football stars parading one by one in front of them.
The CEO of AFX Capital, Manuela Mazzaco, said: “We are thrilled to see the new FC Chiasso’s home and away kits. We think that they look stunning and that they mark the official beginning of a new era, full of success and glories. We support the team with all our heart and look forward to the beginning of the new 2015-2016 season.”
FC Chiasso was established in 1905 and is located in the municipality of Chiasso, Switzerland. The football club’s stadium is Stadio Comunale and the team’s coach is Marco Schällibaum. Its most glorious period was in 1948 and 1961, when FC Chiasso played in the Swiss Super League. In the 1950-1951 season, the club finished second and in 1951-1952, it finished third. The team also played in Italy’s Serie A between 1914 and 1923.
FC Chiasso is the second Swiss football team AFX Capital is supporting. Earlier this month, LeapRate reported of the broker’s sponsorship deal with FC Sion.
