The Gold Coast SUNS are pleased to welcome Tribal Sport as a partner of the club’s women’s program, becoming the official compression partner for the AFLW team.

AFLW players will have access to the Sam Virgo Performance range which includes women’s specific athleticwear and undergarments.

“The girls have been wearing the Sam Virgo Performance products around the club and we’ve had really great feedback from them,” SUNS Head of Women’s Football Fiona McLarty said.

“It’s been really beneficial for us to be able to provide our players with high-quality performance products.”

Tribal Sport’s General Manager Josh Lake said the company was excited to be on board for the SUNS’ inaugural AFLW season.

“Women’s sport is huge for us and to be involved with the SUNS’ AFLW program is a great opportunity for Tribal Sport,” Lake told SUNS Media.

“At Tribal Sport we were one of the first companies in Australia to produce performance wear for women suitable to be worn in AFLW matches.

“We see a lot of great synergies between the SUNS and Tribal Sport and we’re extremely proud to be involved with Gold Coast’s first female national sporting team.”

SUNS co-captain and Tribal Sport ambassador Sam Virgo said she was thrilled to see her teammates given access to her performance range.

“We first released the Sam Virgo Performance range two years ago and it was Tribal Sport’s first foray into Performance Wear,” Virgo told SUNS Media.

“For me it was all about building a product that fits the need of a high performing athlete but is also sustainable and comfortable to wear while training or playing.

“We were really committed to ticking those boxes and have produced the range using 100% recycled fabric made out of recycled plastic.

“For me it’s still quite surreal to see the product come to life.”

The Sam Virgo Performance range includes full-length tights for recovery, short black training shorts and gameday-approved neutral colour performance shorts.

Tribal Sport joins Kool Kids Training College, Sumo, Harbour Town Premium Outlets, Mackay Regional Council and Griffith University as partners of the club’s women’s program.
