UK esports organisation Demise have announced that Kappa will become the team’s official kit supplier, with both organisations agreeing to a multi-year contract.

The partnership was brokered by sports sponsorship agency Van Hawke Sports and will see apparel company Kappa supply kits to Demise’s esports teams from August onwards.

Kappa continues to expand and grow in line with its long-term goal of being a key player in the esports scene. Founded in Turin in 1967, Kappa’s iconic logo of a silhouette of a boy and girl sitting back to back is known around the world.

Kappa is worn by professional sports clubs including SSC Napoli, Real Betis and AS Monaco, as well as other esports teams like Vexed and Diabolus.

Oliver Lumsden, founder and co-owner of Demise, said: “Kappa have always been a prominent brand within the sports industry and it’s fantastic to get the opportunity to work with them as our new kit supplier.”

Dave Bandell, Kappa UK sales manager, added: “We are delighted to become the apparel partner for Demise. Having met the guys it was clear they share the same ambitions as us in the esport arena and we welcome them to our growing stable of teams. We look forward to a successful partnership.’’

Van Hawke Sports, CEO, Sunny Singh commented: “We are pleased to have assisted both Kappa and Demise with this agreement. The Kappa brand is quickly becoming synonymous with the esports sector, and their latest partnership with team Demise demonstrates the ongoing transition of non-endemic brands venturing further into this space.”
