Premier League soccer side Stoke City have unveiled Skins as their official compression partner.

The three-year deal will see Skins supply the club’s players, from academy level upwards, and staff with its extensive range of compression clothing.

Skins clothing is designed to reduce the amount of muscle damage that athletes sustain during exercise by accelerating the delivery of oxygen to muscles.

“We are always looking to innovate and create new partnerships at Stoke City and we believe this will be the first partnership of its kind in football, giving us a competitive edge in the industry,” said Stoke’s head of commercial, Andrew Billingham.

“We believe there are three important layers to any professional athlete – the body which trains and eats the right nutrition to improve performance; the compression layer that helps reduce muscle damage by increasing circulation of oxygen to the muscles and the top layer which is traditionally the club’s identity but has technical and lightweight fabrics to aid performance.”

David Ling, the general manager of Skins, added: “The partnership re-enforces Skins’ position within international sport and means that Stoke City will now join a partnership roll-call of teams and athletes from across world sport including the Wallabies Australian Rugby Union team, Bath Rugby, Exeter Chiefs and a series of internationals athletes from sports such as alpine skiing, cycling and triathlon.”
