They are the giants of their respective fields and have two of the most fanatical, dedicated fan bases imaginable.

It’s a match made in heaven! 

Legendary rock band KISS and the biggest sporting club in Australia, the Collingwood Football Club, today announced they have teamed up to produce a very special, one-off commemorative T-shirt – THE KISS MAGPIE ARMY.

This collector’s item has been produced to celebrate the iconic band’s return to Australia in October to perform for the “KISS Army” as part of their 40th anniversary world tour.

It’s no secret KISS has had a love affair with Australia which goes back to their very first visit 35 years ago. The band loves being here and was keen to offer fans a fun “Australian-specific” item of merchandise to mark this special anniversary tour.  But what?

In August 2013 Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons became co-founding partners of the only football team of any kind in the greater Los Angeles area – LA KISS ™.  The team is part of the US Arena Football League.  Suffice to say Stanley and Simmons are huge football fans and so an alignment with the biggest football club in Australia seemed the perfect fit.  

This amazing T-shirt features incredibly detailed drawings of the four iconic KISS faces on the front with the KISS and Collingwood FC logos, while the back is emblazoned with the words ‘KISS MAGPIE  ARMY”.  

This incredible one-off collector’s item – which is a combined KISS, Collingwood Football Club and AFL promotion - is sure to be hugely popular with both the KISS Army and avid Magpie supporters. 

The T-shirt retails for only $40 plus postage & handling and is available for purchase for a strictly limited time period from Thursday July 16 9.00pm until Friday October 2 through both the KISS (www.KISSONLINE.com) and Collingwood Football Club (shop.collingwoodfc.com.au) websites. 

Fans may also purchase the T-shirt in a bundle with a Gold Reserve concert ticket for the Friday October 9 show at Rod Laver Arena for a reduced price of $140, available through Ticketek:  http://premier.ticketek.com.au/shows/show.aspx?sh=KISSCOLL15
