Doncaster Knights are delighted to announce that we have signed a new partnership with retail provider Elite Pro Sports.
Elite Pro Sports, who have led on the production of the clothing and technical apparel for Doncaster Knights since the 2017/18 season, have signed a new deal with the club that will see them lead on technical ranges for both players and supporters whilst also taking over the responsibility for operating all retail outlets from the 2019/20 season.

Over the next few months, supporters will also be made aware of other outlets where they’ll be able to purchase Doncaster Knights merchandise from in time for the forthcoming season.
Lee Jenkinson, CEO of Elite Pro Sports said, “We are delighted to have signed a new deal with Doncaster Knights and to be able to build on an already successful partnership which we have developed over the last two years. Ahead of the 2019/20 season, we have put together a wide and diverse range of merchandise which we believe will be well received by Knights supporters”
Knights Commercial Manager Michael Casey added, “I am really excited to be extending our partnership with Elite Pro Sport into 2019/20 and beyond. Together I am confident that we can significantly improve our kit and merchandise offering to supporters and push the Knights brand beyond what’s been previously possible.
As part of the new deal, a new technical kit supplier will also be announced in the coming days which will see the team run out in a new brand from the 2019/20 season."
