Warriors announce hummel extension

Wigan Warriors and Technical Kit Partner hummel are delighted to announce an extension to its long-term partnership.

The partnership, which was already scheduled to run until the end of the 2023 season, has been extended for a further five years until the end of 2028 in a resounding show of faith from both parties.

Hummel have been working with the Club since the start of the 2020 season, during which time the two organisations have worked closely placing great emphasis on garment quality and design, contributing to an impressive 31% increase in retail sales.

Having begun their journey into club Rugby League with Wigan Warriors, hummel have also begun to expand their presence within the sport to include two other Betfred Super League clubs.

Wigan Warriors Executive Director, Kris Radlinski, said: “We are delighted to agree an early extension to our partnership with hummel which is testament to the quality they provide us with both in terms of playing kits and retail garments.

“From the outset, ourselves and hummel have strived to work together to build a world-class retail offering for the Club, including the launch of a number of new lifestyle ranges to appeal to new and existing fans alike.

“Just two years into the partnership and the results speak for themselves with strong and sustained retail growth despite the challenges faced during the Covid-19 pandemic.

“We look forward to taking this to the next level with the launch of our 2022 ranges, plus building on the partnership in the years ahead.”

Hummel UK Managing Director, Mark Underwood, added: “We are pleased to announce the extension to our existing partnership with Wigan Warriors, the understanding we have built over the past two years is testament to the work both the Club and we have achieved, to create this winning professional, replica and retail product offering.

“We look forward to working together and taking our partnership to the next level, both on and off the pitch.”
