Meyba teams up with Oakland Roots to produce kit dedicated to Black Panthers

Catalonian kit masters Meyba have partnered with Oakland Roots and their sister club Oakland Soul to provide their new kit. 

Under the creative direction of football shirt aficionado Neal Heard, the new jersey celebrates Oakland’s unique place at the interaction of social and cultural revolution.

The first collaboration is part of a limited edition legacy collection incorporating the iconic logo of The Black Panthers, established by Dr. Huey P Newton in his time at Oakland University.

The Roots, like the Panthers, are an organisation that was built on a love for its home city, its history and its people.

Meyba's Creative Director Neal Heard said the Oakland Roots and their sister club Oakland Soul are progressive clubs who understand the importance of their place in the community and the impact they can have. 

 

"The world of football is changing, it’s no longer viable for clubs to take the fans for granted.

Football goes deeper than that, it isn’t above the community, it IS the community. Meyba are at the forefront of this change, we want to play our part. The teams we partner with, and what they stand for, are all part of a joined up strategy."

Neal Heard, Meyba Creative Director.
