First imagined as part of designer - Hirofumi Kiyonaga's SOPHNET. imprint, F.C.Real Bristol was created in 1999. Based on the concept of a fictional football club, the garments are designed with the focus of football and performance in mind. With the support of Nike, F.C.R.B. has been able to experiment with both the fashion and technical concepts relating to football culture, including sponsoring real Japanese football clubs in the J. League and F. League. Consideration of every aspect of the game from manager, to player, to fan is represented at the core of the brand's designs.
