We have been really impressed with the quality of the product that KooGa created last season and we are looking forward to working together over the next three years. I am sure that our players and supporters alike will be very happy with their innovative and technically advanced range of products. The 2009 season will see Wigan Warriors offer our fans the widest ever range of merchandise and also increase the number of ways in which they can buy direct from the club.”
Bill Newton, Sports Marketing Director of KooGa added,
“Wigan Warriors are a world renowned name in Rugby League and we are delighted with this new agreement. We are very proud of our leading rugby brand and are pleased we can supply the Club with our superb range of products for the next three seasons.”
