Irish sportswear manufacturer, O’Neils, has signed a three-year deal with the Penrith Panthers to become the clubs official apparel partner.
O’Neils will produce the club’s playing kit and training apparel, as well as supplying a wide range of off-field and supporter wear items.
“Panthers is delighted to link up with O’Neills and provide our fans with the most affordable jerseys in the NRL, without compromising on quality,” Panthers Chairman, Dave O’Neill, said.
“Through innovation and forward-thinking, this partnership has delivered a game-changing outcome for our loyal members and fans.
“This is only the beginning and we look forward to working closely with O’Neills over the years ahead.”
O’Neills Australasia General Manager, Antoinette Brophy, said the manufacturer was similarly delighted to partner with Penrith Panthers.
“O’Neills has been the choice of champions since 1918 and we are thrilled to align the O’Neills brand with another sporting powerhouse in Penrith Panthers,” Antoinette said.
“We have taken a ‘whole of club’ approach for Panthers and we’re excited to deliver a quality outcome for players, staff and supporters in all facets of the kit design and development from our manufacturing plant in Ireland.
“Our focus on delivering quality, high-performance team wear has been more than 100 years in the making and we’re looking forward to a successful relationship with the Panthers family.”
O’Neils also announced a new deal with the Newcastle Knights last week for 2020 and beyond.
