Ellgren Ltd are delighted to announce a brand new partnership with Betfred Championship club, Halifax RLFC, for the 2021 season.
Under the agreement, Ellgren will supply all of the club’s playing and training apparel as well as producing a new range of products for their retail operation.
Ellgren are specialists in bespoke sportswear with over 30 years experience of designing and manufacturing in the sports & teamwear market and boast a rich rugby league heritage, producing some iconic designs which are still fondly remembered to this day. Ellgren has ambitious plans and see Halifax as central to the growth and development of the brand.
Halifax last showcased the famous Ellgren brand back in the 1990/91 season with a squad that included superstars such as Brendan Hill and Greg Austin to name just a few.
Jonathan Schofield, Managing Director, said:
“Ellgren are delighted to have agreed a kit and apparel partnership with Halifax RLFC for 2021 and onwards. Like Ellgren, Halifax RLFC are a prestigious name within Rugby League and have a rich history within the sport and will be a great addition to our growing portfolio of clubs.
“It has been a pleasure working with the club to produce a fantastic, high quality range of products that we are excited to put to the Halifax players, staff and supporters.”
Halifax RLFC Director of Marketing, Lee Kenny, added:
“We are thrilled to be working with Ellgren as it personifies where Halifax RLFC are right now. A club with real heritage and a burning desire to embrace the modern game with excitement at the prospects for our future.”
Halifax RLFC Head Coach, Simon Grix, has also been impressed with the quality of Ellgren’s products. He said:
“Ellgren is a brand synonymous with rugby league and we are please to be a part of its resurgence. Both the training and leisure wear look very nice and the samples we have had are top quality. I am sure fans won’t be disappointed with a range for all ages. It will be nice to see our colours around the town again.
“It’s probably a bit silly, but every year the lads look forward to picking up their gear and I’d guess even more so this time as we resume our identity after such a lay off.”
