They are a brand with a rich heritage which now has a strong foothold within Rugby League.
Karl Fitzpatrick, CEO
Warrington Wolves have agreed a two-year partnership with Irish manufacturers O’Neills ahead of the 2019 season.
O’Neills will be the official kit supplier for the club and is a brand rich in heritage, renowned for being the largest sportswear manufacturing company in Ireland since being founded in 1918.
As a company they have the ability to manufacture from their own fabrics allowing them to specially design garments to meet the short delivery dates dictated by the market. They will customise garments in their embroidery and print departments to satisfy the needs of the club.
O’Neills currently work with a wide range of sports including gaelic games, soccer, Rugby, boxing, basketball, athletics, special Olympic athletes, hockey, and netball.
Neil Williams, O’Neills UK Sales Manager North, said: “O’Neills is delighted to welcome Warrington Wolves into a new partnership. Both parties have a long and successful history and it is very exciting to be able to combine the expertise from both sides. The ethos of this partnership is perfect as both partners are passionate about what we do and how we strive to give the best possible service to our supporters. We very much look forward to working with all associated and will endeavour to look after all involved to the very highest level.”
Warrington Wolves’ chief executive Karl Fitzpatrick added: “Firstly I’d like to thank ISC for being a great partner for a number of years but we felt like it was the right time to go in a different direction with a new kit supplier. We are really excited about working with O’Neill’s. I believe that their business model will create growth within our retail operation and I’m sure the supporters are going to love the new and exciting designs across our replica, training and lifestyle ranges. They are a brand with a rich heritage which now has a strong foothold within Rugby League.”
