This year, the Pittsburgh Thunderbirds and Friction Gloves will collaborate on a 4K ultra-HD commercial that will be format ready for television, live-stream, online media and more. Shooting will take place in the Spring of 2017.


“The guys on the team love their Friction Gloves,” says General Manager Andrew Gardner. “Performance wise, it’s really easy to see they make a difference and the ability to get an all yellow glove makes our players look great.”
