SPOKANE – DEC. 2, 2019
The Spokane Shock are proud to announce that they are partnering with Phenom Elite as the team’s Official Uniform and On-Field Apparel Provider.
Phenom Elite was originally founded in 2013 by Nathan Dorton, who, as a former college football player at Appalachian State, could not find the quality of product he wanted. With a $65 investment, he designed and manufactured his own glove. Shortly after, a full uniform and apparel line was developed, and Phenom Elite began marketing its brand to help build a culture around quality products with the belief that their mission is bigger than sports.
"We are excited to be a part of the rebirth of the Spokane Shock franchise. They are an iconic indoor football brand and we are honored to be chosen as the Official Uniform and On-Field apparel provider,” said Nathan Dorton, CEO, and Founder of Phenom Elite. “We look forward to seeing the new uniforms and apparel in action during the upcoming IFL season.”
Phenom Elite manufactures highly customizable uniforms, apparel, and gear while maintaining an excellent quality standard. Phenom has built a large part of its brand based on its creativity and customization options for all products.
“Partnering with Phenom Elite allows us to outfit our players and fans with top-quality uniforms and gear for the 2020 season. We are excited to show off the look and style PE has provided! Phenom Elite is a family-run company that cares about the satisfaction of their product, and has proven to do what it takes to put the highest quality on the field year in, year out! We couldn’t be more excited, Let’s Go!!” said Billy Back, Spokane Shock Head Coach & President of Football Operations.
