Tottenham Hotspur has revealed suitcases and bags company TUMI as an official partner of the club’s pre-season tour to South Korea this July.
The company will outfit Head Coach Antonio Conte, staff and players with personalised travel luggage and lifestyle accessories including items made from recycled materials.
Todd Kline, Chief Commercial Officer at Tottenham Hotspur, said: “We know our team and delegation lead active lifestyles and have to travel frequently. Therefore, we wanted to equip the team with high-quality travel products, offering them style and function, so they can keep performing to the highest standard.
“The club and TUMI share the same uncompromising standards and determination to drive excellence, so this partnership with TUMI is the perfect way to give our travelling group exactly what they need.”
The brand has also highlighted its commitment to preserving the planet and is a supporter of global environmental initiatives through annual corporate contributions. This has also been noted as an objective of the top-flight team.
Earlier this year, Spurs finished top of the Premier League’s sustainability table produced by the UN-backed Sport Positive for the third year running. The club also joined the UN Race to Zero, committing to halve its carbon emissions by 2030 and become net zero by 2040. The club also played host to the Premier League’s first net zero carbon fixture when London rivals Chelsea visited the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last September.
South Korea Men’s national team captain and Premier League Golden Boot winner, Heung-Min Son, is already a TUMI brand ambassador. On the deal, he stated: “I’m excited to have my teammates join me in my home country. It’s perfect for them to arrive in style thanks to TUMI.”
Additionally, the new partnership will also see both parties collaborate on content for the pre-season matches in the Coupang Play Series whilst out in Korea this summer.
Jay Jeong, Brand Head of TUMI Korea, concluded: “We are committed to perfecting the journey and have been long inspired by Son’s unwavering dedication to be the best he can be, both for his team and representing his home country.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled to expand our partnership to support his full team on this momentous trip and look forward to welcoming them to Korea.”
