Hornets team up with ICON ahead of 2020 season.
Rochdale Hornets are pleased to announce a new partnership with kit manufacturer ICON.
Rochdale Horents is pleased to welcome ICON Sports as its official kit partner for 2020.
ICON Sports are a Rochdale based company with a proud history of supplying cost effective, industry leading clothing solutions to community, grassroots and professional sports clubs and organisations throughout the borough, as well as across the UK and globally.
Greg Tattersall managing director said: "As a previous winner of the Rochdale Business Awards, sponsor of the Rochdale School Games and supporter of Springhill Hospice, it is a huge honour to be the official kit supplier to not only our home town club but also a prestigious UK rugby league club in Rochdale Hornets.
"The last 12 months has seen huge investment and development in the ICON Sports rugby department, culminating in international partnerships such as with the Fijian National Rugby League team.
"As we continue to work with community grassroots sports clubs and organisations, we welcome any rugby clubs looking for a new clothing supplier to contact our dedicated sales team on 0800 689 3913 or email email@example.com"
Rochdale Hornets CEO Steve Kerr said: "Our commercial ambition is to work with more local suppliers and seek added value for the club and fans. ICON Sports are rapidly growing and have a great reputation. When we started to explore the opportunity with ICON we quickly realised there was a nice synergy between the brands. Gregs father the late Bob Tatersall was a former Chairman at Horents, and it was great to hear about the development of the partnership with the Fijian National Rugby League team, a community that is close to the hearts of fans of Rochdale Hornets."
Fans can look forward to a new range and apparell that will be stocked in the club shop as well as committing to stocking the Fijian RL shirt.
Kerr added: "We've worked really hard on the design of the 2020 kit and im sure fans will be excited to by what we've produced. We're expecting to announce the official kit design in the coming weeks with pre-orders available from the launch date."
