Rovers reveal new 2018 home shirt for Super League return!

Hull Kingston Rovers have unveiled the club’s new 2018 home shirt to be worn on our return to the Betfred Super League next season – and it's on sale now at www.hullkr.co.uk/shop!

Revealed at tonight’s Party on the Pitch to celebrate promotion back to the top flight, the design is a modern twist on the club’s initial kit when it was established in 1882 as well as the shirt worn for our first ever season in Super League in 2007.

Produced by kit manufacturer XBlades Sports and featuring a brand new main shirt sponsor in the MLS Group, the shirt has been designed to help supporters “Paint the Town Red” and let everybody know that #ROVERSAREBACK!

Hull KR’s Head of Marketing and Retail, Craig Franklin, said: “We are delighted to reveal our 2018 home shirt earlier than ever before to mark our return to Super League next year.

“This is the earliest we have put the following season’s shirt on sale by a considerable margin and it’s down to a massive team effort from the club’s retail and commercial departments to get the designs in place with XBlades Sports and secure sponsorship from our partners in record time.

“The final design has been in place and signed off for some time and was delivered into the country by XBlades last weekend. Following our promotion, we just couldn’t wait to show everybody our new look for 2018 and we’re quietly confident it could become a classic.

“We’re expecting a busy weekend of sales but we’ve ordered a bulk shipment and have thousands of shirts to Paint the Town Red!”

The new 2018 home shirt is on sale now online at www.hullkr.co.uk/shop and in store from 9am tomorrow morning.

It will also be available at KCOM Craven Park this evening via a pop-up merchandise stall in the MLS Group Colin Hutton North Stand as part of the Party on the Pitch celebrations.

The shirt is priced at £47 for adults, £36 for juniors and £32 for toddlers.

In addition, 2018 home shorts are priced at £22 for adults and £20 for juniors and will go on sale in store and online from 9am tomorrow morning. They will not be available at KCOM Craven Park tonight.

To mark the launch of the new home shirt, the Rovers Retail store will be open from 9am to 5pm tomorrow and on Sunday from 10am to 4pm.
