Wigan Warriors have returned to a traditional design for their 2018 home shirt.
Produced by Erreà, the home shirt features traditional, thick Cherry and White hoops with cherry sleeves and a gold trim. Wigan will wear the shirt primarily with cherry shorts and white socks.
The new away kit is black with a cherry trim, with the shirt design containing a sublimation of the castle from the Warriors crest. For the first time, both the home and away shirts feature four stars above the crest signifying the club’s four World Club Challenge victories.
Both shirts feature the 188 Bet main sponsor logo and npower logos on the sleeves.
Wigan Warrior’s Executive Director, Kris Radlinski said: “Our fans are the best in the world - they give our team the power to do the business on the pitch so we are delighted our partner npower is working with us to engage and reward all their brilliant support.”
The shirt will be priced at £49 for adults, £37 for juniors and £40 for mini kits (which includes shirt and shorts).
Throughout the season, npower will be measuring the energy output of the club’s players and fans, and will demonstrate how their combined ‘Super Powers’ directly impact on the team’s performance and success on the pitch. npower’s concept to measure fan energy will be revealed ahead of the first match of the new season.
Ed Madden, npower’s head of marketing said: “We understand the passion fans have for their club and we are extremely excited about our plans for harnessing and celebrating their energy over the season.”
Acknowledging Wigan Warrior’s special family of fans, npower will be celebrating their unique ‘Super Powers’ and rewarding their efforts. To start the campaign, npower teamed up with the Warriors to offer fans the chance to attend the shirt launch photoshoot for a chance to see behind the scenes and meet their heroes.
Season ticket holders will be the first to get their hands on the new replica home shirts during an exclusive pre-sale at Warriors World in the Grand Arcade on Thursday evening from 5pm-8pm.
