Leicester Tigers will be showing off the club’s new kit for the 2017/18 season at the Singha Premiership Rugby Sevens on July 28.

The 10-times English champions can also announce that kit supplier Kukri will be its new technical partner for the next two seasons, supplying home and away kits for the 2017/18 and 2018/19 seasons.

The new home kit will be worn for the first time when Tigers kick off their Singha Premiership Rugby Sevens fixture against Wasps and Newcastle Falcons at Northampton Saints’ Franklin’s Gardens home next Friday (July 28).

The club will be posting teasers across social media for fans to enjoy in the build up to launch day, where the away kit will also be revealed online.

Chris Rose, head of brand at Leicester Tigers, said: “Tigers are the largest club in the UK and it was key we found a supplier that could match those standards. We’re really pleased to welcome Kukri for the new season.”
Andrew Ronnie, Kukri managing director, said: “Kukri Sports has been a market leader amongst rugby brands since its inception in 1979 and we are delighted to be partnering with Leicester Tigers, one of the largest and most high profile clubs in the UK. Our brand aligns perfectly alongside Tigers commitment to quality and passion on a worldwide stage and we look forward to joining them at Welford Road this coming season.”
Chris Bailes, head of partner business at Fanatics, Tigers’ retail partner alongside Kukri, added: “We know that Leicester Tigers supporters want quality first and foremost, and we think that Kukri will be able to deliver this for the 2017/18 season, and have developed a fantastic training and playing range.”

The new home kit will be available for supporters to pre-order from July 28, with training wear on sale in mid-August. The new kit will be available in store for the season opener against Bath at Welford Road on September 3.
