This goes for, among others, Italian Sampdoria and Brescia,Dutch Feyenoord, German Werder Bremen,Spanish Real Betis, Swedish Hammarby and Danish FC Copenhagen
It is hard to believe that a modern and progressive company like Kappa is almost a hundred years old. But the truth is that Kappa was founded as a sock and underwear company in 1916 in the Italian city Turin.
In the 1950s the Maglificio Calzificio Torinese (MCT), already a leading manufacturer of socks and underwear in Italy, created Kappa, a sub-brand of the Aquila brand, as a result of a production problem that had caused a loss in sales.
