Newcastle Jets agree apparel deal with Viva

Australian sportswear brand Viva is the new kit supplier for soccer side Newcastle Jets. 

The Viv Sports-owned company will provide the Australian club with home and away kits for their A-League men’s and W-League women’s teams, as well as their age representative sides. It replaces BLK, which went into administration at the end of 2016. 

Viva, whose national sales manager is former Newcastle Jets coach John Kosmina, was founded in 2008. It has supply deals with the Australian Baseball League, Football Federation South Australia, Basketball South Australia and Athletics South Australia.

The Newcastle Jets finished bottom of Australia’s top-tier A-League in 2016/17, losing 15 of their 27 fixtures.
