Under Armour and Moscow-based club begin 2018-19 title defense together

Football Club Lokomotiv Moscow finished the 2017-18 campaign as champions in the Russian Premier League and punched their ticket into the UEFA Champions League Group stage. The historic Russian football club isn’t looking to give up its throne anytime soon. 


Under Armour has jumped aboard with FC Lokomotiv to start the Moscow club's 2018-19 title defense, a feat the club has never achieved in the RPL. 


The partnership pairs two global icons in their respective spaces, and is the first such partnership for Under Armour within the RPL.


Not only will UA outfit the defending champs, but the Baltimore-based company will also bring its leading technology in the apparel, footwear, equipment and connective fitness spaces to FC Lokomotiv’s clubs and affiliates in an effort to make all of its athletes better.


FC Lokomotiv will wear an exclusive UA kit during the 2018-19 season, featuring UA’s innovative HeatGear technology which has the ability to adapt to different weather conditions, and a durable knit fabric to allow movement in all directions.


The three-time Russian Premier League champions will embark on their title defense when the league kicks off on July 30th with the UEFA Champions League Group stage draw being held on August 30.
