Collab: Added Time x Die Innenstadt

We’re always looking to connect with fans of the beautiful game to provide them new ways show their support.

So when the opportunity to collaborate with Cincinnati-based supporters group Die Innenstadt arrose, it seemed like a match made in soccer-supporting heaven.

As one of the largest independent supporter group for our local MLS side, FC Cincinnati, Die Innenstadt have played a large part in shaping the blooming culture surrounding the club. Their name, meaning the “Inner City”, pays homage to their roots in Cincinnati’s urban core and the city’s prominent German heritage. And they’ve long maintained a focus on championing the rebirth and progress of the Queen City — a cause near and dear to our hearts here at Added Time.

So what did we whip up together?

When it came time to the come up with the design for our wristband collaboration with Die Innenstadt, we turned to their groups’ eclectic collection of membership scarves. On one side we took inspiration from their 2018 scarf, placing the group’s initialed lettermark over top a blue-tinged background of Bavarian diamonds. The reverse features the orange latticework covered in white vines from their 2020 scarf, a nod to the the shaded outdoor biergarten of DI’s longtime away matchday bar, Mecklenburg Gardens.

Ever socially conscious, Die Innenstadt has also pledged to donate $2 from the sale of each wristband to local charity, It Starts with the Shoes. The soccer-focused non-profit looks “to provide shoes, equipment, gear, nutrition, training, tansportation, and facilities for those who otherwise can’t afford to play soccer”.

For supporters of the Orange and Blue who want to sport the new reversible design at TQL Stadium, you can pick one up at Die Innenstadt’s pre-match festivities starting this Saturday, July 31, 2021, at the Sam Adams Tap Room in the West End. They’ll also be available at future away day watch parties at Mecklenburg Gardens and in their online store.

Interested in partnering with Added Time Outfitters to produce a unique, one-of-a-kind wristband for your supporters group, youth club, or soccer organization? Let’s talk! You can more about the process — and even fill out the interest form — on our Collaborations page.

Helps us add some international flair

Thanks to the delays induced by the dreaded plague, the summer of 2020 will be one to remember for supporters of the beautiful game. The European Championships, Copa America, and the Olympic tournaments have all been bumped back to this summer, meaning we’re in for a smorgasbord of soccer this summer.

To celebrate, we’ve decided to massively expand our wristband offerings for national teams!

Our three current international designs — for the U.S. women’s and men’s national teams and Mexico — have proven some of our most popular to date. And this summer, we’ll be adding a further seventeen wristbands. Here’s who we’ll be making them for:

Europe
England
France
Germany
Italy
Netherlands
Portugal
Spain
South America
Argentina
Brazil
Chile
Colombia
Uruguay
Elsewhere
Ghana
Japan
Nigeria
South Korea
USWNT (2nd Design)

Now normally, we like to keep our new designs under wraps until we release them into the wild. But we’re taking a different tact with these international offerings by letting YOU help us choose the iconic matches we feature on each wristband. All you have to do is scroll down below and cast a vote for the matches(s) you think should get incorporated into the designs. We made some suggestions for each country’s designs below, but feel free to write in your own matches as well.

We’ll leave the polls open through Friday, April 9 to allow ample time for votes to be cast and production so that we can have these designs on your wrists this summer.

Now that you’re done voting, check out our full selection of international team wristband designs.

Collaborate with Added Time Outfitters

Back before the turn of the New Year, Added Time Outfitters experienced yet another first: our first custom collaboration on a wristband.

Our team worked closely with Mitch, a former member of the Coker University men’s soccer team, to create a design that would celebrate the program’s 40th anniversary. Together, we whipped up a snakeskin-inspired wristband that paid homage to the Cobras’ past and present. Over 120 wristbands were ordered, including one for every current member of the Coker varsity team and staff.

Of course, we’re hoping this is the first of many collabs across the soccer community. Whether you’re a youth club, non-profit organization, college team, supporters group, or even a like-minded brand… we want to work with you! Added Time Outfitter wristbands are the perfect way to commemorate a massive achievement, build club culture, or even be used to run a fundraiser.

And to make the process easier, we now have a dedicated page on the site to submit your interest in collaborating.

A big thank you to Mitch and all of the Coker soccer family for kicking things off, and we look forward to working with you on a design soon.

For your head: Added Time Outfitters + Talisman & Co.

When we first launched Added Time Outfitters, our idea was relatively simple: let’s come up with a unique way for supporters of the beautiful game to represent their favorite teams, moments, and sport.

And though that idea initially manifested itself in the form of our line of original wristbands, we have always dreamed of more. Apparel lines, artwork, and further accessories have always dotted the periphery of our discussions about and plans for the future. We took a small step in that direction with the sticker packs we launched in July.

But today, we take those dreams a step further.

We’re doing that by launching our first move into the headwear space and an exciting collaboration with Talisman & Co. Launched by former professional player Dustin Branan and based out of St. Paul, Minn., Talisman “offers high-end, quality made caps to help you support and celebrate your football club”. And with a few Talisman caps already in our personal collections, teaming up with them for our first hat seemed a no-brainer.

The result of that collaboration affirmed that choice: the Added Time Outfitters + Talisman 5-Panel Cap.

The cap sports an unstructured, premium brushed cotton twill five-panel design, which is often called a “camp hat”. It features embroidered Added Time Outfitters logos on the front and back, including a new “fourth official” secondary mark. On the inside, a co-branded tag featuring the Talisman and ATO wordmarks.

You can purchase your own Added Time + Talisman 5-Panel Cap now as it is available exclusively at addedtime.com.

But that changes today as a selection of our original wristbands are now available from our friends at Away Days, a Boston-based soccer brand an online retailer.

In addition to Away Days’ own line of soccer lifestyle apparel offerings, they provide supporters of the beautiful game a way to discover new clubs and football brands through a curated offering of soccer jerseys, apparel, and accessories.

Happy birthday to us

Against all odds, we survived our first year.

This Wednesday, July 29, 2020, will mark exactly one year to the day from the public unveiling of Added Time Outfitters. And what a wild year it’s been. We’ve discovered and rectified a major production snag, exponentially increased our product offerings, and navigated the turbulent waters of a pandemic and social upheaval.

A year ago, we made our debut with just five wristbands for five teams. Today we have 24 — plus six new designs for six new teams which will be introduced in the few weeks. There are stickers now, too. We’ve shipped to 48 states (plus D.C.) and six countries. And we’ve sold thousands of wristbands. Alexi Lalas even gave us a shout.

None of that, of course, would be possible without the support of everyone who has placed an order, shared a post, or even gave us a follow. So it only seemed right that we celebrate our big milestone by saying thanks to all of you.

And we’ll be doing that in two ways…

Starting today you’ll notice posts on each of our Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter feeds where will be conducting a follow, comment, and share/tag giveaway culminating on Wednesday at 12 PM Eastern! Follow the exact rules for each channel below for your chance to win FIVE (5) Added Time Outfitters wristbands:

  • Facebook: Navigate to the post on our wall, leave a comment where you tag at least two friends, and then share the post to your own wall. Make sure you give the ATO account a “like” as well.
  • Instagram: Navigate to the post on our feed, tag at least two friends in the comments, and then share the post to your story. Make sure you’re following the ATO account, too.
  • Twitter: Find this tweet, reply to it by tagging at least two friends, and then share the post to your own wall. Too, be sure to give our account a follow.

You can register to win on each of the platforms, but you can only be selected as winner for one. Winners will be announced on each relevant social channel on July 29, 2020, by 1 PM Eastern. Winners must also have a shipping address located within the United States, and must get in touch with us either through direct message (DM) or by emailing us here, by August 1, 2020, with proof of account ownership.

Additionally, we’re also launching a special 20% off sale on all orders placed between now and midnight on July 29th. To take advantage of that sale, use code “ONEYEAR” at checkout.

Hopefully that goes a little way to showing our appreciation for all of your support during our first year, and here’s looking forward to a bigger and better year two and beyond.

Stick with us

Since our last update back in March, quite a bit has gone down both in the world at large as well as here at Added Time Outfitters.

As we promised then, we’ve continued to regularly roll out new wristband designs. Our match collection now features 24 designs for teams from seven countries and we have five more to debut in the next few weeks. And despite a torrid expansion comparable only to Major League Soccer’s over the last few years, you’ve somehow managed to outpace our increasing supply with an ever-increasing demand.

Along the way, we’ve received numerous suggestions for new product ideas — from further fashion accessories to apparel and various beyond. To be fair, those are all things we have talked about doing. But, as it turned out, the new product request that we’ve received the most is also one that was one of easiest to pull off.

Hence our newest product offerings: high-quality vinyl stickers.

We took a design from 15 of our most popular wristbands and laid it overtop of three familiar templates: a pitch, a boot, and a ball. And each looks great on your laptop, water bottle, or favorite pub’s bathroom wall… though only if they endorse that sort of thing.

Just like with our wristbands, each pack of three stickers is available now with free shipping for just $5! And if you missed the link above, either hit the “Shop” link at the top of the page or view the entire collection of stickers by clicking here.

And after you order your own stickers, make sure to snap some pictures and tag us so we can see where you’re sticking Added Time Outfitters.

Let’s get domestic

It’s been a weird couple weeks in the world of soccer. This time of year, we’re normally completely overwhelmed by choice. For those of us in the Eastern part of the U.S., it’s usually entirely plausible to watch the beautiful game non-stop from sun up to sundown each weekend. There’s the home stretch of European campaigns, Champions League, and of course the launch North American competitions.

Here at Added Time Outfitters, we had been eagerly preparing for the arrival of American leagues. Though thanks to the onset of a global pandemic, we — along with soccer supporters across the globe — have been denied that weekly inspiration and escape.

But just because there’s no soccer being played, that doesn’t mean we can’t still celebrate the teams and memories that we love.

With that in mind, today we’re proud to unveil five brand new Added Time Outfitters wristband designs that pay homage to some of our country’s most iconic clubs:

Coupled with the already available Cincinnati-inspired Queen City Cupset and the U.S. men’s national team derived Red White and Denim, that brings our total number of domestic offerings to seven. Don’t see a wristband for your side yet? Let us know who you want to see next by getting in touch.

As a reminder, every order ships free of charge within the United States including all of our new designs! And be sure to follow us on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook to get the latest updates on new products, special offers, and giveaways.

Add some Added Time Outfitters to Your Desktop

A month out from launch, there’s still a lot going on behind the scenes at Added Time Outfitters.

Thanks to your feedback, we’ve made some tweaks and improvements to the website and checkout process. The build-out of our social platforms continues on a weekly basis. And we’ve placed orders for five brand new designs that will be making their way onto the ATO store in the very near future.

But as we cook all that up, we figured a few freebies wouldn’t hurt to keep your attention. “What kind of freebies?”, you might ask.

Wallpapers, that’s what! For each of the current Added Time Outfitters’ wristband designs, we’re also dropping matching mobile (1080×1920) and desktop backgrounds (2560×1600).

While we’ll eventually find a permanent place for these to live on the site — and where we’ll add more as further designs become available — you can download each of the five current sets of backgrounds below.

Blue Moon Rising: Mobile | Desktop
El Quinto: Mobile | Desktop
Miracle in Istanbul: Mobile | Desktop
Mes Que: Mobile | Desktop
The Treble: Mobile | Desktop

Enjoy… and stay tuned for those five new designs coming soon!
