Wigan Warriors to play in purple next week
Wigan Warriors have revealed an alternative purple kit which will make its debut against Leeds next Thursday.
The launch follows strong demand for the club's home and away kits this year, with the Warriors reporting their strongest pre-season retail sales in a decade.
Warriors executive director, Kris Radlinski, said: “Following strong sales of our 2021 home and away kits, we are delighted to launch our striking alternative kit.
“The kit will be worn for several matches throughout the season, starting with next Thursday’s game against Leeds and including our Dacia Magic Weekend fixture against Warrington in September.
“Purple has traditionally been a popular choice among Wigan fans, so we look forward to seeing plenty of these shirts within the stands as crowds return later this season.”
Wigan Warriors’ 2021 alternative kit is on sale online now via their official store, with an accompanying purple warm-up shirt now also available as part of the same launch.
Fans are advised that sales will initially continue to be online only due to government restrictions regarding non-essential shops. A dedicated click and collect service from the club’s Robin Park Arena store will continue to be available during this time.
As part of the relaxation of government restrictions, Warriors intend to reopen the Robin Park Arena Store from Monday April 12.
The alternative shirt will be available in all sizes (from SB up to 8XL and all usual women’s sizes), priced at £39.99 for juniors and £49.99 for adults.
