GEARXPro is a partner of Lewes Community FC
Lewes FC, a team playing in the Isthmian League Premier Division, whose players are nicknamed “The Rooks“, have started a collaboration with the Italian brand GEARXPro Sports, which is proud to be able to collaborate with the English football club.
The team of East Sussex is characterized by a tumultuous history: founded in 1885 following a meeting in the pub The Royal Oak, in the 2000s the Rooks debuted in the top league for the duration of a single season, before going through a serious financial crisis, but always in those years the brand new women’s team was founded by Jacquie Agnew.
In 2010 due to numerous difficulties the club is transferred from private property to a charity, thanks to the hard work of a group of six fans nicknamed Rooks125, becoming a Community Club.
Despite the difficulties and moderate resources the women’s team will enjoy a meteoric rise to the FA Women’s Premier League (South), gaining promotion from the Combination League. But the real turning point comes in 2017 when the club launches its groundbreaking Equality FC campaign, which sees Lewes FC become the first, and currently only, club team in the world to have equal budgets for women and men.
Lewes FC stands out from any other professional or semi-professional soccer club not because of numbers or results, but because of the values and principles that form the foundation of the club, making it an example in the world of sport and beyond.
These ideals of innovation also characterize the thinking of the multisport brand GEARX-Pro, which collaborates with the English team through the supply of the award-winning SOXPro grip soccer socks and the special NSG FLEX-GXPro gel shin guards.
The products in the GEARXPro range, made by athletes for athletes, are designed to improve the performance of the wearer, ensuring speed and precision of movement as well as fantastic lightness: this is what is expected of the Lewes FC teams, although in terms of method and sportsmanship they can already consider themselves winners.
