News from Sky Bet League Two yesterday Hartlepool United announced Errea as the club’s new kit supplier in a two year deal.
The Italian sportswear brand will provide the new Hartlepool United playimg kits and training wear for the start of the 2022-23 season.
Hartlepool United COO Stephen Hobin said “I am really excited to announce this partnership which I am sure will be very positively received with our supporters and players alike. It was extremely important to land this deal and it has been in the making for several months. Never again will we be in the position we were in last season where our supporters wanted to buy shirts for the season only to be left disappointed and frustrated. This deal is a serious deal for a club in the EFL2 and we have placed huge orders which are currently in manufacture to meet our expected demand. I have worked with Errea before and I have a very good working relationship with Fabrizio Taddei and his colleagues over in Parma. One of the key things for me in this deal was to create wonderful, exciting kits and associated ranges that were truly unique and bespoke to this football club. We also needed a safe pair of hands and in Errea I know we have a solid operator who will deliver. In my 6 years at Norwich City for example I cannot remember a time that Errea let us down and what you tend to find is when clubs leave Errea to try someone new, they always go back eventually. Personally for me this was a promise I made early doors on my arrival and I was very determined to deliver a great range, at an affordable price and on time well in advance of the new season”
Fabrizio Taddei thé Head of Global Partnerships at Errea said, “It is with great pleasure that we welcome Hartlepool United to the Erreà family. While our history is not as long as Hartlepool’s, we are both family owned and working hard to build on success. As such, we see this as a true partnership and are looking forward to working closely with everyone at the club over the next seasons and to creating not just some great match shirts, but also distinctive and stylish ranges that we hope will be loved by both players and fans alike”
