Ulster Rugby extends with kit partner

Irish Pro14 rugby union club Ulster has signed a long-term extension to its kit partnership with sportswear company Kukri.

Kukri will remain the official kit, training and leisure wear supplier to the team for a further five years, until 2023.

The deal covers the Ulster men’s and women’s senior teams, as well as the club’s academy side and age grade teams. Kukri will provide kit for all coaches, referees and staff working across the province of Ulster.

Kukri has been supplying kit and apparel to Ulster since 2008.

Fiona Hampton, head of sales and marketing at Ulster Rugby, said: “Having a partner that enables us to have full input into our high performance products and official retail range, and that also provides an independent retail network allowing fans all across the province – and beyond – to readily access Ulster Rugby apparel, was really important to us.

“We know the partnership with Kukri will facilitate both of these key elements moving forward, allowing our brand to develop and thrive.”
