New Kit Supplier!

“Ahead of the 2018/19 season, Saracens is delighted to welcome back Nike as the club's official kit supplier on a three-year deal.

Saracens and Nike have a long history of successful partnership; Nike were the club’s kit supplier for five seasons between 2010/11 and 2015/16 creating a range of popular jerseys including the famous black and red stripe worn in the club’s first season at Allianz Park, as well as the kits in which Saracens won the 2015 Aviva Premiership and their first Champions Cup title in 2016.

Nike is one of the most innovative and recognisable brands in sport, with the iconic swoosh adorning the jerseys and footwear of elite teams in sports from football to basketball and the NFL. In joining forces with Nike, Saracens will become the only Premiership Rugby side to sport the swoosh.

Tim Hunt, CEO of Premier Team Promotions Ltd, the joint venture now overseeing Saracens’ commercial operations, said: “We are thrilled to be back working with a brand with whom we have such a strong history, and we are very much looking forward to the launch of the new kit which we hope will prove as popular with the fans as it is with the team.”

Saracens captain Brad Barritt added: “The whole squad are really excited to be wearing Nike again this year. The quality of the product and the technology behind the kit really sets them apart.”

The 2018/19 kit will be revealed in mid July when supporters will be able to pre-order their shirts via the club shop website before the in-store launch at the Summer Gathering on 12th August. Other Nike lines will be available in store and online over the coming weeks.”

So let's start the sweepstake - how much for a new home shirt?

I'll go for £85.

It matters not to me. I already emailed the club to tell them I won't be spending any more in the club shop!

Yes....still seriously miffed about my ticket price hike/re-location. (Sm110)

I'm not sure I even spend all of my 20 in the shop each year. I only ever purchase a club shirt when it's in the end of season sale or via a third party

79 pounds is my entry double that for the official players version

So does anyone know what happened with the deal with BLK. According to what I could find on the internet we signed a 5 year deal with BLK BLK Announcement

I've heard comments that BLK are in some difficulties but does anyone know if we ended the deal or did they? Is Nike simply offering more money as they now seem to be actively getting back in to rugby?

I wasn't a great fan of the Nike merchandise previously. It alwaysd seemed to be generic shirts and kit as opposed to being designed something special.

I hope I'm proved wrong and we get something unique - but I expect it will just be a Nike "template" shirt with a Sarries logo on it .

Not just a template but an away strip that has some design thought and not just a different colour scheme to save design costs... That's why I liked BLK s first attempt

The first two Nike kits may have been templates but the Dennis the Menace and big smoke Jerseys most certainly weren’t

There are some leaked pictures of what is alleged to be Spurs' new kit (strongly disliked by their fans) that to my eyes doesn't seem that far removed from our Nike "Norfolk Farmers" offering of 15/16. Perhaps we're trendsetters!

Last year I was admiring the Jaguares top, bemoaning we no longer had Nike.

Very happy we both have Nike back and the Saracens version of the plain black top

Just seen Brizzles new dark blue (and red) kit.
If Brizzle wore that to Saracens would it be a clash with The MiB's new all black kit?

Really like those Brizzle kits but do they look a bit like a recent French kit?

Well Bristol cannot wear their away kit, going to be fun unless we play in our away kit for both fixtures

Brizzle's away choice does seem daft; apart from us, Pests, Newcastle, Exeter and the rear of Saints(!) all clash. As boomer suggests, their home strip isn't a clear option to bring to AP either.


Still no sign of our away strip yet. Home a snip at £130!

That black kit is Bristol's European kit, their away kit is white.

You may be correct CT but(!) Briz's site (linked in boomer's post) states "away kit" for the black version whilst your twitter link is to the "alternative strip" - usually the third choice.

Either way I expect we'll see the white version at AP.

That story is from April. Judging from this story, it looks like they've been told to produce a white away kit to prevent kit clashes.

Three Gallagher Premiership clubs are yet to reveal this season's kits - but no fewer than NINE have showcased new apparel for the 2018/19 campaign. Pictures and prices here

Any thoughts on what the away kit will be like ?

Same as the home kit but white?

Will we have a European shirt- red perhaps ?

Will the blue shirt make a re- appearance ?

If the club is doing a “going back to classic” look for us, can we have a hopped away shirt
