This week saw representatives from the club travel to Parma in Italy to visit Erreà headquarters.
The club recently agreed a 3 year partnership with the Italian sportswear manufacturer and were invited over to Parma to have a tour of their headquarters as well as work with their design teams to design our kits, trainingwear and leisurewear for next season.
The trip was a real success with the club making a great impression on the Erreà staff as well as been able to finalise designs for our 2017 range.
Hunslet RLFC CEO Martin Flynn said “The trip has been really worthwhile, we were able to achieve more in a day then we would have in weeks of going back and forth over emails. So from that perspective it was great.
“To to see the impressive headquarters and the scale of operation was an eye opener. Iit really helped us to gain an understanding of the size of organisation they are.
“We are really pleased with the designs for the kits, trainingwear and leisurewear. We have gone for a traditional style but with a modern feel for the kits.
“First images of our home kit will go live Saturday morning and I’m sure our supporters won’t be disappointed.
“I’d like to thank James (buysportkitPRO), Michael and Graham (Erreà) for their superb hospitality during our trip, they really looked after us and made us feel welcome. We look forward to welcoming them to the South Leeds Stadium very soon.”
First glimpses of the new 2017 home shirt will be posted on Facebook and Twitter on Saturday morning. Keep an eye out!
The club will continue to update our supporters on when the kits, trainingwear and leisurewear will be available.
