Ospreys Soar With Renewed Kit Partnership Deal
By - | 30/01/2007
The Ospreys have secured a multi-million pound deal with KooGa Rugby Ltd., Europe"â¬â¢s leading rugby brand. The new contract, one of the most significant in UK rugby, will take this special relationship through to 2011.
KooGa and the Ospreys have been working in partnership since the welsh region were formed in the summer of 2003. A region with a strong identity and a loyal following, replica jersey's are extremely popular along with KooGa training apparel.
Come the end of this season, the Ospreys will have sold over 40,000 playing shirts which speaks volumes in terms of how supporters like to wear their allegiance on their backs, and how the technologically innovative KooGa product satisfies the demand.
In addition to taking care of the needs of the senior playing and coaching squad, KooGa rugby will continue to work closely with the Development and junior sides. This will ensure that members of the region at all levels benefit from high performance kit.
KooGa's Sports Marketing Director Bill Newton says;
"At KooGa Rugby we have a very clear operating strategy and working with a leading region such as the Ospreys and their fan base meets with our ambitions.
"We work hard to be very much considered part of the team, and the equipment that we provide is designed and developed with players' needs in mind, along with the modern rigours of the game.
""This is a major commitment for us, but the Ospreys being such a professional outfit with an exciting playing squad and die-hard supporters we're very excited about sharing with them the region's next phase of growth."
Not only will KooGa maintain their commitment to the Region's elite, support will also be given to the regional and grassroots community sides.
Ospreys Strategic Development Manager Paul Thorburn says;
"We're very pleased indeed that we have agreed another four years of working with KooGa. The game is continually evolving as does the KooGa kit. Players have cutting edge apparel to train and play in, and our supporters too can share in the quality."
A specialist rugby brand, KooGa is currently working closely with the Ospreys on producing a stand-out "charity", in the same vein of the highly successful "pink" shirt (Supporting Cancer Research UK) made for the Newcastle falcons.
