Inspired by the artwork from local artist Ryan Henry Ward, Ballard FC is extremely excited to officially launch the ‘Henry Kit!’
Henry is a very talented artist, painting over 300 murals throughout his career. His murals are incredibly vibrant, full of bright colors, and creatures, each representing the distinct way that he sees the world. His murals can be found all throughout Seattle and, through his art, Henry has made Ballard a much more lively and fun city.
Inspired by a celebration of soccer and community, Henry partnered with us to create a mural at Reuben’s Brews Taproom in November 2021 illustrating an array of his famous characters joining together to watch a soccer match while raising a few beers for a toast.
To celebrate Henry’s artwork, Ballard FC has collaborated with the artist, replicating his famous soccer mural to create a ‘Henry Kit,’ which will be worn by the team for the May 30th game! To further honor Henry and his impact, Ballard FC has made the May 30th game ‘Henry’ themed, making it the first themed game of many to be celebrated this season.
These kits are on sale now, available online for purchase for $85. There will also be 100 jerseys available at the May 30th game, and there is an additional limited supply on sale at Reuben’s Brews.
The Henry Kits are currently available online, and, if purchased now, will be received before the May 30th game. However, once a size sells out, it will become available for pre- order and will not be received until August. Purchases made online are able to be shipped both nationally and internationally.
Henry will be honored at Interbay on May 30th, cheering Ballard FC on as they face Oly Town FC.
Although the game has been sold out, stay tuned later this week for more information on tickets.
