GANGTOK, October 21, 2013
United Sikkim FC and Kokkivo clothesline on Saturday announced a tie-up wherein the Snow Lions will be flaunting the Red Panda tees while travelling. Kokkivo is urban clothesline launched earlier this year by two young entrepreneurs Sonam Tshering Tamang and Deep Dhar, both 24 years old from Gangtok. Their special product for United Sikkim FC launched on Oct 19 is a navy blue tee.
United Sikkim’s mascot ‘Snow Lion’ is imprinted on the chest (right) portion of the tee while Kokkivo’s logo ‘Red Panda’ is smartly positioned on the left sleeve.
The tee will be worn by all the United Sikkim players and officials whenever the team is travelling for tournaments.
“It is one of the historic days of us. For a small place like Sikkim, the club has got its own designer. Our players will be wearing the Kokkivo t-shirt whenever they travel.
We are proud and both Sonam and Deep are examples for entrepreneurship for our youths to follow,” said Bhaichung to media.
Sonam and Deep, both graduates in management, expressed their happiness on the tie-up with United Sikkim and Bhaichung. It is also a historic day for us to be associated with Bhaichung and United Sikkim, they said.
“The T-shirt is made from the finest fabric that will comfort the United Sikkim players wherever they have to travel. Keeping the hot and humid climatic conditions in mind, we have designed the T-shirt. The main thing we focused on was the comfort levels,” said Sonam and Deep.
The United Sikkim-Kokkivo tee, in different colours, would be made available in all the three stores of Style in Gangtok and can also be ordered from the website of Kokkivo. We will be coming up with more stuff for United Sikkim and their fans, said the duo.
United Sikkim senior manager Arjun Rai and the players also attended the launching function at BB15 Fitness & Dance Studio here.
