An amateur football club that's sponsored by a porn site has launched a supporters' club.

American Non-League side Washington Square FC officially unveiled RedTube as its sponsor in September last year.

While the sponsorship earned the side a new following on social media under the tag #RedTubeArmy, fans could not show their support by purchasing the playing kit or supporter gear.

That is, until now.

A new site launched by the club allows fans to purchase an array of the RedTube emblazoned apparel, including singlets, hats and player shirts.

Washington Square FC isn't the first football club to have the logo of a porn site on their front, with an English side banished from a competition for putting Pornhub on their shirt as a joke. 

However, it is the first team to be officially sponsored by a porn site which was confirmed by RedTube last year.

Founded in 2013, the team plays in America's North Eastern Bay State Soccer League, achieving promotion to Division Two last season.
