As it enters its seventh WPSL season, Columbus Eagles FC is excited to announce a new partnership with strong Columbus ties. The club has partnered with Supporter Supply Co., a locally owned merchandise production and design company, to bolster its officially licensed fan apparel options.
The first official design that the Eagles and SuppCo. is offering as part of the partnership is a USWNT-inspired Americana crewneck sweatshirt, to celebrate the national teamâ€™s FIFA Womenâ€™s World Cup win and the teamâ€™s Nov. 7 match at MAPFRE Stadium against Sweden. Buyers will also get fans a unique Eagles button, which will be pinned to the sweatshirt.
â€œThe SuppCo partnership is a great choice for the Eagles,â€ CEFC lead designer Larissa Najjar said. â€œWe share the same passion for the game and love for the Columbus community. Weâ€™re excited to expand our fan shop with this new collaboration.

The partnership will help the Eagles design and produce more creative offerings to expand its footprint in central Ohio. Half of the partnership will be the Eagles staff designs, and half of the partnership will be SuppCoâ€™s designs, approved by and on behalf of the Eagles.
Supporter Supply Co, founded in central Ohio in 2018, thoughtfully designs supporter-focused merchandise and apparel. The company has focused on designing Columbus Crew-related merchandise â€“ scarves, tees, sweatshirts, and more â€“ to this point. The Eagles are the first club for which SuppCo. will have official licensing rights.
“SuppCo is very excited to begin this partnership with the Eagles and bring our unique brand of supporter-focused designs to their passionate fanbase,â€ Kevin Glenn, Founder and Principle Designer at SuppCo, said.
Supporter Supply Co also has the rights to sell their Eagles designs as part of their online store and in-person pop-up shops throughout Columbus.
