Whitehawk Football Club are delighted to announce a new shirt sponsor, and a brand new kit design in partnership with O’Neils International Sportswear.
The new home kit has a sublimated image of the new Hawks badge on the front and, in recognition of their incredible passion and loyalty to the club, the club can announce that a Whitehawk Ultras’ logo has been sublimated onto the back of the home shirt.
The away kit has been designed by International Turner prize nominee and curator of the 2018 Brighton Festival David Shrigley, and depicts a sublimated map of the Whitehawk area, should anyone find difficulty in finding us! A version of this shirt was recently used by Rainbow Rovers for their ground-breaking match against the ex-Premier League All-Stars at TheTerraPura Ground.
The Club are also delighted to welcome Brighton Couriers on the front of shirt for this season. The company, based in Hassocks, provide same day express delivery service, rapid collection & fast secure delivery packages anywhere throughout the UK & Europe.
The company have been huge supporters of the Hawks for a number of years, and this season have made the step up to Official Shirt Sponsor of both the home and away kit. The partnership also confirms the company as the Official Courier Company of Whitehawk Football Club.
We also welcome back our old friends GMB Southern and last season’s front of shirt sponsors The MET College, who will both be on our back of shirt, home and away.
Managing Director of Brighton Couriers, Ryan Birchall said;
“Brighton Couriers are very proud to be on the front of The Hawk’s shirts for this season. We have been big supporters of the club for a number of years, and I’ve been really impressed with the way they have been building the foundations and sending out such a positive message. We look forward to working with Whitehawk Football Club over the coming season!”
Hawk’s Head of Commercial, Kevin Miller said;
“On behalf of the club I’d like to thank Ryan and his team, and welcome them back this season as our front of shirt sponsors. We’ve worked really hard over the past year to challenge the perceptions of the club around the region, and that hard work is beginning to pay off. We thank Ryan for his support, and look forward to working with the company over the season!”
Of the new kit he added;
“The new kit designs are incredible! When we signed up with Josh Brown and his team at O’Neils ,one of the key factors was the sublimated designs – no more patches! I was determined to place the Ultras’ logo on the back of the home shirt, because there’s far more than just 11 players on the pitch at home games, and I believe that it’s a gesture of thanks for helping us generate such an inclusive and positive message out to the rest of Brighton and beyond. David (Shrigley) has created an astonishing and totally unique design, that both players and fans (and hopefully non-football fans) will be proud to wear.”
“We’re Whitehawk FC and we’re in it together, and I hope fans enjoy wearing both shirts over the next two seasons!”
