NEW RANGE BOOSTS SALES

Salford Red Devils supporters have been quick to snap up the latest merchandise, following the launch of a new range on Friday.

The 2021 range features new branding, which was also unveiled on Friday.

The most popular items from the Kappa Leisurewear range were the Basilo black hoody and the Mareto t-shirt, with significant sales of snoods and face coverings also reported over the weekend.

Salford Red Devils managing director Paul King said: “We’re really pleased to see such a positive response from supporters towards the new range.

“High sales figures in the junior sizes have been particularly encouraging and give us lots of confidence in our plans going forward.

“A key intention of the rebrand, was to boost our merchandising potential and it’s promising to see there are already signs of an impact.

“Strong retail performance is always important to clubs, but particularly at this time, as we look to respond to the loss of matchday revenue this season.”

Red Devils supporters can see the new range in full HERE on the Wild Thang website.

John Howarth, director at Wild Thang Ltd, said: “The sales on the first weekend of the rebrand have been very good across a broad range of product, with the Kappa Basilo hoody and Mareto tees proving particularly popular.

“In my personal opinion, Andy Roberts and the team at the Red Devils have done a great job with the rebrand and we cannot wait for the home shirt reveal, as we predict it will be the biggest selling home strip in years.”

Supporters can find out more about the recent rebrand HERE.

“With Morson’s head office based in Salford, it also highlights our identity as a community club.
“We’ve been really encouraged by the number of businesses coming forward to support the club since our play-off campaign and hope to see this continue ahead of the 2020 season.”

He added: “The Grand Final was a great event for the whole city, which led to me being asked to support the club and I was delighted to get the main sponsorship position on the shirt.
“Hopefully the momentum and enthusiasm from the final will carry on and the community will get behind the club.
“Local businesses have had the opportunity to advertise on the shirt as well, which was a great idea, and I’m pleased that the winning company, Cannon, are based in Trafford Park, so quite local.
“The benefits that Salford offer through TV coverage now, and their performance on the pitch, elevates what they offer to sponsors.
“The coverage was one of the decisions which helped me decide to advertise on the shirt, because of the fantastic reach it has.
“I know the back office are working their socks off to help the club and get more sponsorship in and I think if we can all rally round and support our local club, and support the local community, it will be an exciting season ahead.”
