According to reports, Premier League club AFC Bournemouth is set to add a touch of Hollywood to their wardrobe.

The Athletic reported on Friday that Bournemouth owner Bill Foley stated in an interview with CBS Sports that actor Michael B. Jordan, best known for starring in the „Creed“ and „Black Panther“ films, assisted in designing a kit for the club that „will be available for purchase soon.“

From Foley’s comments, it’s unclear if and when Bournemouth will wear the kit designed by Jordan on the field. The club has already unveiled three kits for the 2023-24 season, so the new kit could be a fourth option for this season, an option for 2024-25, or purely a fashion kit.


„Mike is a great guy.“

„He’s a very down-to-earth, regular guy. He doesn’t have stars in his eyes. He loves soccer.“

„He’s really helping us with our international marketing and U.S. marketing. He’s designing a kit that will be available soon.“

„He’s engaged, and we love having him. I think he is going to be in Bournemouth today and tomorrow to watch practice. He’s all in, and it’s good to have him – he’s a great guy.“

Black Knight Football and Entertainment, headed by Foley, completed an acquisition of AFC Bournemouth in 2022 and also holds a stake in the French Ligue-1 club FC Lorient. During the acquisition of Bournemouth, Foley invited minority investors into the new ownership structure, and Jordan was one of those who accepted the offer. This was Jordan’s first foray into creating a professional sports team.

Foley is also the lead investor, chairman, and CEO of Black Knight Sports and Entertainment, the consortium that owns the Vegas Golden Knights of the National Hockey League.

AFC Bournemouth’s kits are currently manufactured by Umbro. The two teams have been working together since 2017, and in 2021, Umbro signed a new five-year contract to continue serving as Bournemouth’s technical sponsor.

Bournemouth will face EFL Championship club Queens Park Rangers in a third-round FA Cup match this Saturday. Their next Premier League match will take place on Sunday, January 21st, against Liverpool.
