Introducing @wearfigs, our Official Healthcare Apparel Partner! 🤝— Everton (@Everton) September 28, 2023
As per the deal, the apparel entity will be seen providing technical clothing to the club’s medical teams of both the men’s and women’s senior wings.
Outside the turf, the American company will be collaborating with the club for the charity, as both entities will be seen assisting each other by putting some efforts, including providing healthcare assistance all over Merseyside.
Mark Rollings, Everton’s Director of Partnerships, said, “From our very first conversation with FIGS, it was clear they were a brand whose values mirrored our own. They are people-centric and put the healthcare professionals they cater for at the very heart of their products. The support they will offer through this partnership will directly benefit the medical staff who are responsible for preparing and rehabilitating our professional players across the Men’s and Women’s teams, and also those delivering the life-changing and life-saving work of Everton in the Community.
He further expressed, “It’s a truly innovative partnership – the first of its kind in the Premier League – and we are proud FIGS have chosen Everton to help tell the amazing story of their work and those of the incredible healthcare professionals they serve.”
Richard Kenyon, Everton’s Chief Commercial and Communications Officer, said, “We are really pleased to welcome FIGS as our Official Healthcare Apparel Partner and to continue growing our portfolio of global partners. I’d like to thank everyone in our partnerships team who have worked so diligently and enthusiastically to bring this together and FIGS for choosing Everton to support their growth plans.”
Michelle Gaster Wasserman, FIGS’ General Manager (International), said, “Partnering with Everton is a natural fit for FIGS. Our mission is to serve those who serve others, so we could not be more excited to support Everton’s medical staff as they support an elite sporting environment. This allows us to celebrate the incredible work of the many different kinds of global healthcare professionals we serve as we continue to grow internationally. Beyond football, Everton’s charitable focus closely aligns with FIGS’ impact-oriented mission, and we look forward to making an even bigger impact with Everton in the Community.”
FIGS is a leading American clothing brand established in Santa Monica, California. Scrubs and other goods for healthcare personnel are sold by the company. Heather Hasson and Trina Spear, co-CEOs, created the venture in 2013.
