After nearly two decades of dealing with some of the biggest names in sport, Futera's Creative Director, Mark Watson, explains how he was constantly witnessing a gap in the teamwear market:

"There are so many companies who provide playing kits. However I was witnessing endless distribution issues with low quality garments and no real enthusiasm for any type of creative or bespoke designs. There's been a bit too much, 'pick a kit and we'll stick your logo on it'. At Futera we had already built a world class design team with the innovation to back it up. So I thought why not see if I can merge this high tech approach into creating our own range of  quality, yet affordable bespoke match day kits and training wear. That's how Futera Team was born."

Since 2020 Futera Team have successfully designed and manufactured their own range of bespoke teamwear and launched sales into Australia - all receiving fantastic feedback. As well as supplying to numerous smaller teams, Futera have also caught the eye of professional clubs such as Adelaide City and Sturt Lions who have successfully collaborated with Futera Team to provide a full range of clothing to not only the Men's and Women's 1st Teams, but also to over a 1000 juniors in their youth academy set ups.

Whilst things are going well for Futera Team in Australia, Mark feels that now is the time for expansion. Over the past 12 months an exciting collaboration between Futera and successful Plymouth based businessman Paul Bennett has seen the formation of 'Futera Team UK', who have now become the UK's sole supplier of Futera's bespoke teamwear. Paul explains:

"Mark has done an amazing job in an already crowded market. To have professional teams in Australia wearing the Futera brand within only a couple of years is a massive achievement. We are both really excited to enter the UK market and take the range to the next level. I'm a mad sports enthusiast and have been a business owner in the hospitality industry for the past 20 years, so attention to detail and unrivalled customer service will be at the forefront of everything we do. And btw, despite our different surnames, Mark & I are actually brothers, so it's fair to say we're really buzzing to be working, and no doubt arguing, together whilst launching the Futera brand into the UK!"

As well as increasing its teamwear range to appeal to a wider target market across multiple sporting sectors, the new UK based team has also added a number of exciting 'feel good' features to the brand such as launching its new 'Futera Stars' program where it financially supports a selection of up and coming young athletes and follows their progress throughout the year.

Paul and experienced Head of Operations, Jo Caswell, will manage Futera Team UK from their new Plymouth based office and are set up to supply clubs across the whole of the UK.

There are exciting times ahead for Futera Team UK and we would love you to be part of the journey.
