Umbro to supply kit for inaugural Star Sixes

UK sportswear brand Umbro has agreed a deal to sponsor Star Sixes, a new tournament designed to showcase football legends.

Umbro will serve as the official kit supplier for the competition, which debuts at The O2 in London from July 13-16.

Umbro has designed the kits that will be worn by the 12 competing nations at the six-a-side tournament: England, Brazil, Germany, Spain, Italy, France, Portugal, Nigeria, Mexico, Scotland, Denmark and China.

Ex-England international Michael Owen, Brazilian World Cup winner Roberto Carlos (pictured) and Portuguese star Deco, who held partnerships with Umbro during their playing careers, will be among the stars to compete at the tournament later this month.

Star Sixes has been organised by the Pitch International agency in partnership with Football Champions Tour, a leading sports management agency.
