After almost a decade as the official kit supplier to England Netball, Kukri’s sponsorship of the team is concluding. This year’s Netball World Cup in Sydney marked the final occasion the team will pull on a Kukri dress, and marks the conclusion of one of the longest running associations in the sport.
Over the 9 year partnership, we have worked closely with England Netball to develop two new elite netball dresses, involving the players in both the development and design of these dresses. This has allowed us to offer the same premium quality dresses to clubs at all levels of the sport across the world. We’re proud to have been a part of England Netball’s growing success which has included winning the 2011 World Netball Series, finishing as runners up in 2010 and 2012, two bronze medals in the World Netball Championships in 2011 & 2015, and a bronze medal in the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi.
“We are proud to have partnered with England Netball for the last 9 years and will continue to support England Netball until the end of October. It’s been an honour to provide playing kit and leisurewear for the English national squad which has so many passionate supporters. Kukri and England Netball will remain firm friends and part with great mutual affection, having achieved amazing things together. We have received immense benefits from the partnership over the 9 years which has helped to hugely grow our presence in netball.” Danielle Jordan-Taft, Sales Director GB and Europe, Kukri.
“I’d like to thank Kukri for their support and sponsorship over the last nine years on behalf of everyone at England Netball. Kukri have played a crucial part in the growth of the sport across both participation and media and it has been fantastic working with them – we wish them all the best in the future.” Matt Cook, Commercial and Marketing Director, England Netball.
Kukri wishes England Netball the best of luck for the future.
