Published Oct 15, 2020

Today, the New York Cosmos announced a new partnership with sportwear company Ebbets Field Flannels - aiming to bring fans premium, authentic, vintage Cosmos gear. The announcement coincides with the launch of an expansion to Ebbets’ growing vintage soccer collection, featuring the L.A. Aztecs, New York Generals, and Washington Diplomats.

“We’re excited to be working with a great legacy brand such as Ebbets,” said New York Cosmos COO, Erik Stover. “Jerry Cohen and his team produce the best vintage sportswear in the business, and the Cosmos are proud to add their name to Ebbets’ product roster.”

Founded in 1988 and still run by its original founders, the Seattle-based company aims to bring the quality, beauty, and craftsmanship of retro American athletic garments to a 21st Century public. While originally specializing in wool baseball flannels, Ebbets has now expanded into a variety of sports and garments, including vintage hats, jackets and sweatshirts.

"We are thrilled by our new partnership with the New York Cosmos,” said EFF Founder and CEO, Jerry Cohen. “The Cosmos brought a revolution to North American pro soccer, and their legacy aligns perfectly with our mission to tell the story of sports history through our American-made high-quality vintage apparel products.”

With the announcement comes the release of the first two pieces of Cosmos collection – jerseys inspired by club legend Pele’s first season in 1975. Both shirts are available now on the Ebbets Field Flannels site – with a variety of pieces being added to the collection in the coming weeks.
