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.

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.
