Designed by Puma, the Kawasaki Frontale warm-up uses red, green and blue to create a plaid pattern on the torso, chest and back of the jersey. Its unique pattern complements the Thomas The Tank Engine patch on the left sleeve. The three colors are Kawasaki’s primary colors, as well as the three trains of Thomas and friends.
This sponsorship is one of the most creative ones yet. It isn’t uncommon for teams to have speciality jerseys dedicated to cartoon characters or superheroes. But this is one of the few instances where a beloved character sponsors a jersey, instead of the typical corporation.
The jerseys are available through Kawasaki’s online merchandise store for $167 USD.
