Sale Sharks have today released their brand-new Home and Cup kits, along with an updated version of last season’s red Away shirt.
The kits were revealed exclusively to Sale Sharks season membership holders at the club’s Summer BBQ held at their Carrington training base.
New signing Rob Du Preez, captain Jono Ross and Chris Ashton donned the new strips as they took part in a live training session with the Sharks squad followed by Q&A in front of over 500 Sale Sharks season ticket holders.
All three kits, manufactured by Samurai Sports, feature the logo of the Club’s new Cybersecurity partner Secarma emblazoned on the shorts and front shoulders, along with the logo of Co-Owner Ged Mason’s Morson International on the rear.
Lawrence Jones MBE and UKFast continue with their extraordinary support of Sale Sharks for another season with the UKFast logo taking pride of place as our headline sponsor on the front of all three shirts.
On the rear of the new strip, Together Money also continue their fantastic relationship with Sale Sharks and feature above the number patch as they have done for the past two seasons. Accompanying Together on the rear are Place2BE, the first charity in the club’s history to feature on all three of kits for an entire season.
Place2Be is a leading children’s mental health charity providing in-school support and expert training to improve the emotional wellbeing of pupils, families and teachers. Three children in every classroom have a diagnosable mental health issue. By providing expert emotional support in schools, at a crucial early stage, Place2Be gives children and young people the vital support they need to help them build life-long coping skills and to thrive.
The idea to donate the advertising space is the brainchild of another Sharks Co-Owner Michelle Orange, commenting during the release, she said:
“Sale Sharks are thrilled to have Place2Be as the first ever charity to be featured on our playing kit. Having personally supported them since 2016, I felt this an unmissable opportunity for the Club to partner with them for the season ahead, highlighting the great importance of children’s mental health and promoting the excellent work that Place2Be do in this field. Off-the-pitch our Community Trust will work closely with the Place2Be team to establish localised programmes to promote mental wellbeing for children and I know that on-the-pitch our players will wear the logo with pride on the back of their shirts.”
