TRAVEL UNIFORM KIT
On October 22, 2019, the Lakeland Tropics Futbol Club announced a new partnership with Capelli Sport. Under this new partnership, Capelli Sport will become the Official and Exclusive uniform, apparel and equipment provider for the Youth Tropics club, outfitting both the travel and inter-league teams.
Who is Capelli Sport?
Capelli Sport is an innovative sportswear and team wear brand focusing on design of the highest quality, latest fabric technology and design functionality for world-class performance on the field. Capelli Sport has sponsored recreational and club teams around the globe with the strong belief that promising young athletes stay enthusiastic and succeed if they are given the proper support.
Why is LTFC changing uniforms?
Clubs often change uniform design every few years. We have been fortunate that our previous uniform was available for the last two years. In conjunction with our partnership and in response to player and parent feedback about the service, fit and comfort of our previous uniform, we have selected a new partner in Capelli Sport which will ensure players have a lightweight, high quality fabric that offers brand name recognition, is appealing to youth athletes and offers a professional look.
When does the current uniform cycle start and when does it end?
We are in the first year of a two-year uniform cycle with Capelli Sport. This means all travel players are required to buy the standard kit for the 2020-2021 season. The kit will span the next two years until Spring 2022.
How do I order my child’s kit?
Capelli Sport has set up on online store to order your Travel Kit essentials. The Club has negotiated a package and price with Capelli Sport for all items necessary for the 2020-2021 season and 2021-2022 season. The kits are good for two (2) years.

How do the sizes run?
Capelli Sport youth and adult kits run slightly smaller than the previous kits. Use the virtual sizing chart located here to get measurements and more precise sizing for your child. Remember, the kits will be used for the next two years, order for room to grow!
A few examples –
Child 1 is 5’5, 102 lbs – Mom ordered size Adult Small
Child 2 is 4’11, 76 lbs – Dad ordered size Youth Medium (shorts), Youth Large (shirt)
What if the uniform arrives and does not fit?
Custom orders (all jerseys with numbers on it) are nonrefundable or exchangeable. However, shorts and socks are not custom and are exchangeable by contacting Capelli Sport.
Please note – it is much easier to make changes on shorts or socks - please ensure the shirt size is appropriate as changing shirt sizes, numbers, etc. can cause delays.
Are their sample sizes I can try?
Yes, the club has limited sample sizes available for try on. Please note, try on is at your own risk. The club does not have the capability to launder each uniform after each try on. Please contact the club office at 863-240-0101 if you wish to see the samples.
