SAMURAI announced as official partner and kit supplier to Fire Sport UK Rugby
Samurai Sportswear is delighted to announce that it has been appointed Official Partner and Kit Supplier to the Fire Sport UK Rugby team as part of a new partnership.
The agreement will see the men’s and women’s Fire Sport UK Rugby players and management wearing custom designed match kit and leisurewear. The new kit is set to be unveiled in January 2016 when the British Fire Service take on the British Police in a charity Rugby match to mark the tragic death of PC David Phillips who was killed on duty in 2015.
Phil Shillito, Secretary of Fire Sport UK Rugby adds “We are pleased to announce Samurai as the official partner and kit supplier to Fire Sport UK Rugby. We worked closely with Samurai to create the new match kit design and we’re very happy we can provide the players with a kit that is of a higher quality and more technically advanced so to encourage better performances on the field”.
Shillito also said that “we’re thrilled to see the final supporters shirt design and look forward to working with Nick Smith and the Samurai team to create more incredible products. We’re committed to seeing Fire Sport UK grow and are pleased to have a partner like Samurai Sportswear to help ensure this happens”
Commenting on the agreement Nick Smith, Samurai Sportswear Retail Operations Manager, said “We are honoured to have reached an agreement with Fire Sport UK Rugby. Samurai has a long history in supporting the men and women of this country who put their lives on the line on a daily basis and this is our way of giving back and saying thank you to them.”
“To further celebrate the partnership, we have developed an official supporter’s shirt which will be available to purchase from all major sports retailers in the first part of 2016. Our design team have done a fantastic job in creating an eye-catching and dramatic garment and we’ve also taken the advice and feedback from the British Fire Service throughout the development process”.
“Looking ahead, we are already starting to put plans in place that will see Samurai further support Fire Sport UK Rugby and we are extremely excited for what is to come from this partnership”.
