Italian sportswear manufacturer Erreà Sport has signed with the Envision Virgin Racing Formula E team as Official Team Clothing and Merchandising Partner.
Under the deal, Erreà will supply the team with all uniforms and act as the official licensee for replica clothing and fan merchandise.
It is thought that Erreà’s sustainability and environmental credentials were key to the deal.
“Our vision at Erreà is to be synonymous with quality, expertise and innovation, but also to do all we can to save on energy, cut down on waste and reduce harmful emissions during the manufacturing process,” Angelo Gandolfi, president of Erreà Sport, said. “This aligns perfectly with Envision Virgin Racing, and we’re looking forward to working together for many seasons to come.”
The Envision Virgin Racing portfolio also includes Alpinestars, Audi SportLab, Kaspersky, Genpact and Stanley Black & Decker.
The digital energy and internet of things company Envision Group became the team’s majority owner earlier this year.
The opening round of the new Formula E season begins tomorrow, Saturday, 15 December in Ad Diriyah, Saudi Arabia.
