Antigua has been named the official apparel licensee for the 2013 U.S. Solheim Cup Team. This will be the second Solheim Cup in succession for Antigua to outfit the U.S. team in their latest apparel.
Commenting on the announcement, Ron McPherson, President and CEO of the Antigua Group had the following to say:
We have had the good fortune to design and develop the Ryder Cup uniforms for the American team back in 1993 and now twice for the LPGA and the Solheim Cup Team in 2011 and this year for the matches in Colorado. These opportunities are a great honor and recognition for our brand and company.
U.S. Captain Meg Mallon also commented on the partnership for the upcoming competition:
It’s been great to work with the staff at Antigua, and they have always been a terrific supporter of the LPGA. They’ve been very enthusiastic about clothing the United States Team, and I’m really excited to see our players dressed in their red, white and blue.
Final uniforms will consist of two separate apparel changes per day (for tournament rounds), plus additional outfits for each day of practice. It took more than a year to design the U.S. Team uniforms.
The 2013 Solheim Cup is taking place at the Colorado Golf Club in Parker, Colorado, August 13th to 18th. Very much looking forward to the golf and fashions on display during the competition.
