Huddersfield Giants have agreed a new three-year deal with leading rugby kit manufacturer Kooga.
The deal with the Manchester-based kit manufacturer means Kooga have the rights to supply all playing kit, replicas and training wear.
Kooga has supplied the rugby league club with their kit for the last seven years and the deal represents a record level of investment in the Giants, coming off the back of the club’s best retail performance in the Super League era.
And Kooga managing director Andrew Ronnie is delighted a new deal has been done.
“We’re delighted to be continuing the successful partnership we have built with Huddersfield Giants over the past seven years,” he said.
“Huddersfield are one of the most recognised, authentic names in the world of rugby league, so the relationship is a perfect fit for Kooga with our strong heritage in the sport.”
The Giants join the likes of top rugby union clubs the Scarlets, Worcester, Gloucester and Yorkshire Carnegie in being part of the Kooga kit family.
Commenting on the news, Giants managing director Richard Thewlis added: “We went out into the marketplace for kit manufacturers and had a plethora of offers and tenders to look at from suppliers of differing sizes.
“At the end of the process the recommendation to continue with Kooga was an easy decision to reach as they comfortably presented the best case for the club.
“Their supply record to us is excellent and their staff always go the extra mile. They have increased their investment in us to record levels and all here look forward to a successful continuation of our partnership.”
The improved three-year deal has been finalised on the back of the unveiling of the new Giants Super League shirts for 2015, with the images of Leroy Cudjoe and Jermaine McGillvary being used for Kooga’s latest publicity shots.
