ANNOUNCING THE “NEW LOOK AKRON RACERS” FOR 2015 PRESENTED BY BOOMBAH
Boombah, the official supplier of uniforms for the NPF, creates dynamic designs for Racers
Akron, OH—Boombah the official supplier of uniforms for the NPF, allowed the Racers GM, Joey Arrietta, the creative freedom to select and help design the “New Look Akron Racers” for 2015.
“I was really excited to go off the grid and pick the uniform style and color combinations that captures the personality of our team,” explains Arrietta. “What I was able to do is what any manager of a team could do with the options available from Boombah. “It was fun for me and I hope exciting for our players to show off the commitment that Boombah is making to our game.”
The four uniform designs are interchangeable allowing jerseys and pants to be switched out on a nightly basis. The colorful accents that can be applied to each jersey and pant provides a lot of flexibility and flare to the uniform.
“Boombah is known in the industry as being the best in custom uniform design and allowing Joey from the Akron Racers to add their design element for their 2015 uniforms is an exciting expansion of our relationship with the Racers and the league,” explains Bob Grey, Strategic Partner Manager for Boombah. “Players that follow the Racers will now be able to design their own custom uniforms or match their favorite players. Boombah is looking forward to the Racers taking the field this season.”
