Salford Red Devils are delighted to confirm that Kappa will be the Club’s official kit and leisurewear partner for the next three seasons.

Kappa – an Italian-based company – currently design and produce kits, training and leisurewear for a host of major European football teams and are also building an impressive Rugby League portfolio.

Director of Rugby and Operations, Ian Blease, said: “We are delighted to enter into a deal with Kappa who are a leader in sports apparel.

“Kappa are a globally recognisable brand who are teamed with some of the biggest sporting clubs and countries in the world and it’s brilliant for us to join their team.

“They have already designed some fantastic Rugby League gear and I know they’ve got some brilliant things in the pipe line for our fans beginning with our 2019 home kit.”

Alan Keylock, Kappa’s Rugby Sales Manager, said: “Kappa are delighted to have teamed up with Salford Red Devils for the next three seasons.

“Salford are a team full of ambition and promise, joining forces with them at this stage is a significant win for Kappa and we look forward to working with the team.”

An online store will be available for Salford Red Devils supporters to purchase all their Kappa merchandise throughout the 2019 season and will be administered by Wild Thang.

Wild Thang Director, John Howarth, said: “As a business we are very excited to be working with the club for 2019 in partnership with Kappa, looking after the online retail merchandise and apparel. With the home kit launch in time for Christmas and some retro apparel in the pipeline it’s an exciting time for all involved.

The online store is set to be launched alongside the release of the Red Devils 2019 home kit which will be available to purchase in the lead-up to Christmas.
