England Netball teams up with Nike, signs kit sponsor

The England Netball national governing body has signed partnerships with US sportswear company Nike and fruit brand Jaffa.

Nike has signed a multi-year deal to provide on- and off-court kit for the England national team during all international competitions.

The team will showcase the new kit for the first time during the three-match Vitality Netball International Series against Uganda, which got underway yesterday (Tuesday) and runs until Sunday. Nike replaces sports apparel brand BLK as the team’s kit supplier.

Jaffa, meanwhile, has signed a two-year deal with England Netball. The brand’s logo will appear on the national team’s match-day dresses as part of the deal.

England won gold at the Commonwealth Games earlier this year and the new deals have been signed as Liverpool prepares to stage the Netball World Cup next year.

England Netball last month signed a three-year extension to its partnership with health and life insurance and investments provider Vitality. Under the arrangement, the national team was renamed as the ‘Vitality Roses’.
