XBlades Sports has become the Knights official kit supplier ahead of the 2017/18 season.
The global kit manufacturer already works with a number of rugby union sides in the UK such as Gloucester Rugby and county rivals Yorkshire Carnegie and will now make sure the Knights are looking their sharpest this term.
The exciting new partnership starts as the Knights return for pre-season with XBlades tasked to use their expertise as a leading manufacturer and retailer of rugby clothing, equipment and footwear to provide new kit plus a new range of supporter and leisurewear which will be available to purchase at Castle Park and online soon.
Kris Tuner-West, Commercial Manager. “We are delighted to have joined forces with XBlades Sports for the next three seasons, they are a dynamic brand whose infectious ambition for growth and success matches our own.
“We are confident that the new partnership will not only see the Knights take to the field in the highest quality rugby clothing and equipment but also allow us to deliver an exciting and accessible new range of supporter and leisurewear to Knights fans.
“They boast an impressive portfolio of top level sports teams and we are happy to be the latest addition.”
XBlades Sports is a global sports brand well-known throughout both codes and also are the official kit provider for the likes of Castleford Tigers and Hull Kingston Rovers in the UK along with Cronulla Sharks and the Paramatta Eels in Australia.
XBlades also provides a wide range of footwear, protection, sports apparel and leisurewear to community clubs, using its partnership with dozens of elite players in both codes who adopt the role of XBlades Ambassadors to continually develop its products.
Lee Jenkinson, Chief Executive Officer of XBlades Sports UK, said: “Adding the Knights to our impressive and growing list of partner clubs is a fantastic opportunity to work with a leading Championship side and one which has a lot to offer both on and off the field.
“We want to play our part in continuing that success by using our expertise to help the club’s retail department move forward, as well as providing top quality products that will allow the players and coaching staff to do their jobs.
“Doncaster’s community programme is also a particularly exciting aspect of this partnership for us. It’s not just about working with the supporters who come to Castle Park on a match day, the Knights also have a really strong presence within the Doncaster community and their engagement with the thousands of local kids playing the sport is first-class.
“We are confident that we have the right range of products to work with those clubs and players across the community game and strengthen their connection with the Knights.”
Keep your eyes peeled for the launch of the 2017/18 home and away strips as well as the new range of supporter and leisure wear available for retail.
