Mango, one of Europe’s leading fashion groups, is making its debut as the new technical sponsor of the Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell - 70 Trofeo Conde de Godó tennis tournament, by dressing more than 400 members of the organisation and the tournament staff, including ball boys and girls, line judges and umpires, who will participate in the tournament and be present on the playing courts, wearing garments that stand out for the quality of their materials and finishes, as well as their exclusivity and comfort.
The uniforms of the ball boys and girls, line judges and umpires include garments such as polo-shirts, windbreakers, sweatshirts, technical trainers and caps as part of their uniform, whereas members of the organisation, such as hostesses or access personnel, will feature garments such as tailored jackets, shirts, trench coats and gilets in their attire.
Inspired by the classic clothing of tennis clubs, the Mango collection for the Godó staff has been produced using mainly technical and functional fabrics such as Coolmax®, Solotex®, viscose and materials with thermo-regulating and breathable properties such as wool and cotton. What is more, the garments have finishes that are quick-drying and resistant to water, wind and odours.
Key garments in the collection include the iconic Ikaria trench coat and the Bologna pinstripe trousers, produced using Italian fabrics. Other key garments include the Flor and Murphy pinstripe suits, made of fabrics sourced from Barcelona.
Mango’s technical sponsorship also coincides with the launch of a new capsule collection of products inspired by tennis, and the design of the first-line merchandising of the tournament. Specifically, the company based in Palau-solità i Plegamans (Barcelona) has designed a capsule collection called Mango Tennis Club, with polo shirts, skirts and shorts with retro details inspired by tennis, in addition to tennis shoes, which it has put on sale in selected stores and on its website.
In parallel, Mango has developed the first-line merchandising of the Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell. Alongside RCTB-1899 (the tournament owner) and Tennium (the tournament organiser), the company has designed and produced a collection of fashion garments and accessories for the sports event, including t-shirts, sweaters, caps, socks and wristbands, which it has put on sale in the official store of the trophy.
