The famous brand specializing in the manufacture and distribution of jeans – which is now an official partner of LOSC – will appear on the back of the Dogues jersey in Ligue 1 Uber Eats, for the next three seasons.
Two iconic and timeless brands :
Created by Philippe Bouloux in 1989, TEDDY SMITH is a mixed, multigenerational brand that is appreciated by all. Like the passion for LOSC, the TEDDY SMITH heritage has been passed on from father to son and mother to daughter for three decades now through collections imagined and designed in France by demanding stylists with a keen eye for detail. "Renewing itself every season" is the credo of this brand, which is close to LOSC values, a club renowned for its ability to reinvent itself constantly through a constant quest for performance and development. TEDDY SMITH and LOSC are two iconic, timeless institutions that are always looking for something new.
A logo specially declined for the LOSC :
TEDDY SMITH has joined the ranks of LOSC's official partners and has the privilege of appearing on the back of the club's jersey, under the number. The brand made famous by its mythical faded jeans has signed a major partnership with LOSC for the next three seasons. It will also have high visibility in the Decathlon Arena at Pierre Mauroy Stadium and in the Domaine de Luchin, on the Club's official signage (LED, 3D carpets, fixed signage and interviews, etc.), as well as on the various LOSC communication media.
LOSC is delighted to count TEDDY SMITH among its official partners and looks forward to writing the next pages of its history with them.

The world of entrepreneurship and high-level sport are united by the values of fair play, excellence and performance; this is why this collaboration has real meaning for Teddy Smith.”
We are very pleased with this new partnership between LOSC and TEDDY SMITH. These are two emblematic French brands with shared values and goals.
