Lille OSC and Canadian Men’s National team star footballer, Jo David recently partnered with former USMNT / MLS / Bundesliga player Tony Sanneh and The Sanneh Foundation to create positive social change for youth players in Haiti via The Haitian Initiative. This partnership will help feed, educate and coach over 320 young footballers in one of Haiti’s most neglected areas.

To celebrate this partnership and raise funds for the program in Cite Soleil, Jo teamed up with Union in LA to create a collection of football streetwear accessories. Union owner and streetwear/fashion community leader Chris Gibbs answered the call and has donated all production expenses, his team’s expertise and all proceeds from the sale of the collection to The Haitian Initiative. The line was co-designed by Jo’s creative studio partner, Fly Nowhere and symbolizes the relationship between Haiti, USA and Canada. Although Jo represents Canada for international competition, he is a dual citizen born in Brooklyn to Haitian parents, before moving to Port Au Prince. There he spent his formative years developing his passion for football before his family relocated to Ottawa, Canada. By chance, Gibbs was born in Ottawa and celebrates his own Caribbean roots.

The Jo David x Union x Fly Nowhere capsule is comprised of 3 football jerseys, a hoodie, cap, traditional stadium scarf, bandana-flag and BDU jacket. The commonalities of football, fashion and geography unifying for the good of underprivileged children in Haiti is the foundation of the design narrative. Building on authentic football motifs and the heraldry of the North American nations inspired Fly Nowhere’s design language for the capsule.

All proceeds from the sale of the Jo David x Union x Fly Nowhere collection collection will be donated to The Sanneh Foundation’s Haitian Initiative.


Orlando City SC (OCSC) and Orlando Pride have appointed Fly Nowhere co-founder Mark Lowyns as the club’s Creative Director. This newly created role will be responsible for the overall creative strategy and brand identity for each of the club’s properties, including Orlando City SC of Major League Soccer, Orlando Pride of the National Women’s Soccer League, Orlando City Academy, Exploria Stadium and all future endeavors.

Lowyns co-founded Fly Nowhere, the B2B creative studio and the commercial spin-off of Nowhere FC, of which he was one of the architects since 2010. They spent several years producing disruptive projects before finally formalizing into the Fly Nowhere studio for hire.

Lowyns was also a culture / creative consultant for Copa90 in London and previously developed the Content & Creative Strategy team at Relevent Sports Group, overseeing all creative for their portfolio of International Champions Cup brands. Prior to these most recent football creative roles, Lowyns spent 6 years with Viacom, and cut his teeth early in the NYC agency community with Frank151 and Bobbito Garcia’s team at Project 2050.

He will continue to oversee the Fly Nowhere house, having recently leaked continuing initiatives with key clients such as Paris Saint Germain, Jo David, and globally renowned DJ duo The Martinez Brothers.

Orlando City SC joined Major League Soccer (MLS) as the league’s 21st franchise in November 2013. The Lions began league play in March 2015, and in 2017, Orlando City SC, moved its home matches into Exploria Stadium, a 25,500-seat soccer-specific stadium located in the heart of downtown Orlando.
In November 2015, the Club announced its intention to bring professional women’s soccer to Central Florida and launched Orlando Pride in National Women’s Soccer League. The Pride began league play in April 2016 with a star-studded team of FIFA World Cup Champions. In 2019, Orlando City SC re-launched OCB to bridge the gap between its successful youth development academy and the First Team.

22 year old Lille OSC / Canada Mens National team footballer Jo David is partnering with former American player Tony Sanneh’s The Sanneh Foundation to create positive social change for youth in Haiti.

Jonathan David Jr. was born in NYC to Haitian parents. Shortly after his birth his family moved back to Port Au Prince where Jo spent his formative years playing football with neighborhood friends and developing a love for the game. His family then set down roots in Ottawa, Canada where he honed his skills and set his sights on a European career. At age 18 he made his professional debut for Gent (Belgium), playing 2 seasons before being transferred to Lille in 2020 for club record €30m, which was also the most expensive Canadian-player transfer of all time. In his first season at Lille he scored 13 goals as Lille bested serial champions Paris Saint Germain to win the French title and the Super Cup, with Jo capturing a crucial goal in Paris. Since then he is also one of the leading goal-scorers for the Canadian National Team who are on an undefeated run and group leaders in World Cup Qualifiers.

Sanneh was inspired by a trip to Haiti in 2010 while playing for the LA Galaxy, and his foundation created The Haitian Initiative to support young players in Cité Soleil, one of the most neglected territories. What started as a one-team youth exchange has grown into a sustainable year round program: feeding, educating and coaching over 320 youth players and employing a full-time community staff. The effort caught the eye of Jo who is now an established 22 year old pro in Europe’s Champion’s League looking to give back to a place close to his heart.

Jo David is partnering with Sanneh and the Haitian foundation to contribute to their ongoing work with an injection of resources and awareness. To jumpstart the relationship Jo will make a personal contribution to The Haitian Initiative. He would like to encourage his peers and fans to contribute directly to the foundation, or by supporting his first initiative: the release of a co-branded football streetwear collection in celebration of his Haitian roots.

Fly Nowhere and Axía Sports management is proud to support Jonathan on this new challenge and looking for new allies to help grow the program.

February 23, 2022 – Paris St Germain and Fly Nowhere have launched an initiative developing special projects and collaboration merchandise to compliment PSG’s unique North American retail expansion.

For ten years now, the Parisian club has adopted a unique brand approach developing an original lifestyle positioning that has led them to become an icon of the contemporary sports world. The club’s international tours have revealed opportunities to create strong ties with fan culture and collaboration with resident artists and partner-brands in new territories.

“Paris St Germain is an iconic brand that transcends football. It has the potential to be the biggest sports club in the world. Although they are massive in scale, they are dedicated to developing intimate partnerships with regional football subculture as they share Parisian style across the globe. We couldn’t be more excited to partner with such a great club.” said Mark Lowyns, representative for Fly Nowhere.


December, 2021 – Lille, France – After winning the Ligue 1 and Super Cup trophies in France his first season, Jonathan David Jr. has settled in as the leading scorer in a league boasting Messi, Neymar, and Mbappe, with a goal-per-every-108-minute average. He now has totaled 11 goals in 17 games, meanwhile adding 2 in the first round of his Champions League debut.

He managed to make the trek back to Edmonton, Canada and snatch a crucial match-winning goal to help his national team to first place in CONCACAF World Cup Qualifiers above USA and Mexico.

The newly formed Venezia FC x Kappa partnership, conceived and brokered by Fly Nowhere, gambled on the unique concept of offering the public four (4) alternative team uniforms (kits) designed by the club’s creative director Diego Moscosoni, to be worn in-game.

After the first 3 were released on the Venezia FC official webstore to sell-out responses, the 4th kit was released to complete the momentum, selling out in under 4 hours. 4 consecutive sell-outs in a row and the set is named one of the most iconic releases in world football.

The newly formed Venezia FC x Kappa partnership, conceived and brokered by Fly Nowhere, gambled on the unique concept of offering the public four (4) alternative team uniforms (kits) designed by the club’s creative director Diego Moscosoni, to be worn in-game; an ambitious practice almost-never attempted in Italy but starting to take hold with the large European clubs, like Paris St Germain and Chelsea, led by Nike and adidas.

While the kits were designed last season and intended for Serie B, Serie A regulations initially forced the kits to be changed dramatically: Gold was banned for numbers, (enforced upon the 2021/22 kits of Inter and Genoa as well) The Arancioneroverdi (Orange-black-green) flag of the club was removed, and the shirt’s main team badges were removed, as a technicality stated the teams name or logo could not appear twice. The name of the team appeared twice as it had for the last 5 years, as a tiny startup in the lower divisions, to fill the space of not having an official shirt sponsor, but the surpise of playoff promotions had turned the 5th place team into the last qualifier for promotion to Serie A, by the smallest mathematical margin. Now finding itself amongst the established clubs who display standard large corporate-sponsorship logos in the allotted space, the issue arose, and no time was left to manufacture new designs for the debut in the top division.

Before the kits could be seen on Serie A global broadcasts, American owner Duncan Niederauer stood behind Fly Nowhere, releasing the first three uniforms online for pre-order, to an instant sell-out.

While the sales numbers were likely a drop in the bucket compared to the established clubs, football brands are not in the business of being intentionally “limited,” so the point was proven: the visibility had over-performed projections and gone beyond local and traditional football audiences. The club earned organic press in multiple languages for one of the first times in history. The relatively tiny Instagram account gained 45,000 new followers in 24 days, before the uniforms had been worn in a game; a 50% total increase for the small brand.

Now the club has rushed to restock the sold-out collection which is projected to land in November, as pirated versions appear across the internet for sale. The remaining “4th kit” by Moscosoni arrives in October and departs from the team’s traditional colors, taking inspiration from the historical crimson and gold flag of the ancient city’s heritage. The design has already been found leaked to the public by football-collector channels.

More than a year after taking on direction role for Venezia FC at the start of 2020, the flagship accomplishment of the studio’s work is revealed: successfully bringing VFC to Kappa to sign a 3-year deal as technical sponsor, with plans for extended street and lifestyle wear starting year two.

In addition to this milestone the studio has continued the evolution of the club’s identity including communications materials like typography, digital and stadium graphics, social media photo style including introducing film photography to digital platforms, collaborating with Bureau Borsche and Nod Nod Studio to craft a new website and shop, and designing 4 new game kits.

This is the second time Fly Nowhere has worked with the club, the first in 2016 under the club’s previous ownership structure.


Nowhere FC are unveiling this season’s shirts with Jameson as the official sponsor. A limited supporter collection — featuring scarves, bucket hats, badges, and pins — has also been created to celebrate the partnership.

The items are set to be released ahead of St. Patrick’s Day 2021.

Nowhere FC has been inspired by Jameson’s home city of Dublin and the everlasting culture of Ireland.

The style is futuristic yet pays respect to history and symbolizes the mashup of culture across time and borders, and includes reference to a vintage purple Ireland goalkeeper strip famously worn by national icon Patrick Bonner in the ‘90s.

The Nowhere FC + Jameson collection is available from 10 March 2021 on the Football Cafe and Jameson webshops.

Fly Nowhere reunites Nowhere FC with legendary Italian streetwear brand C.P. Company for a special collaboration featuring signature Nowhere FC takes on C.P. Company’s iconic Goggle Jacket and other items.

Company and remains the basis of every piece of clothing carrying the C.P. Company label.
