Items available for purchase include t-shirts, decals and a unique scarf that contains a few nods to Republic’s history and identity.
Some of the nods are the club’s signature “Indomitable” message and 10 stripes to commemorate the club’s tenth season.
The Pride line was designed by Nathanio Strimpopulos, who currently operates as the creative director for The Trevor Project.
The Trevor Project is a national organization that provides crisis and suicide prevention services to young members of the LGBTQ+ community.
For its Goals for Pride campaign, Republic FC will donate $100 for every goal scored in each of the team’s four matches in June.
Along with the campaign, Republic FC said it will also be hosting San Antonio FC for its annual Pride Night match on June 24 at Heart Health Park.
