New Kit Partnership
The club are delighted to announce a three year kit deal with Stockport based and global brand adidas and Sporting Touch.
The deal with adidas and Sporting Touch will see them supply our kit for the men's first team for the next three seasons as well as seeing Sporting Touch become the lead sponsors of the women's and youth team.
The agreement comes after a detailed review of options carried out since the turn of the year. The deal will see adidas become our exclusive kit manufacturer from the start of the 2020/21 season and will be supplied by Sporting Touch, specialists in team wear provision.
Paul Jolleys, who lead the review on behalf of the board, along with Secretary and Kit Man, Rob Hurst, said;
“We started the review at the beginning of the year and involved pretty much every major football brand.
“We were really impressed with the level of interest and the number of offers we received.
“It was a difficult decision to shortlist two for the board to give their full consideration to.
“The board made the decision to move to adidas as they felt the offer from them in terms of kit and off-field apparel will be a big hit with players, coaches, supporters and parents alike.
“The expertise of Mark Bradbury and his team at Sporting Touch was second to none and we look forward to working with them to deliver a range of club items via a dedicated online store.
“We want to place on record our thanks to everyone we have worked with over the last few months and our thanks to Jako for their support over the last three years.
“They will be focusing on other areas of sport going forward and we wish them every success.”
We are looking forward to this new and innovative partnership going forward, we are also delighted to have input from the fans on some key decisions and further news regarding the new kits and the launch date will be released in due course.
