Rochdale AFC have signed a 3-year kit deal with Italian sportswear brand Errea.
The new kit revealed today will be available to purchase in the club shop, along with a range of training and leisurewear, from 9am.
Colin Garlick, Dale Chief Executive said: “We are extremely happy in the appointment of Errea as our new kit supplier. Following an extensive selection process over a 12 month period, the Board of Directors awarded the contract to Errea due to their ability to customise a quality playing kit to meet our specific requirements, offer excellent lead times and a range of additional bespoke merchandise.”
Fabbrizio Taddei, Export Manager at Errea said: “It is a pleasure to be entering into a partnership with such a historic club as Rochdale AFC. When creating new ranges for a club with such a long history, it is always tricky to find the right balance between tradition and innovation; we hope that by working closely with the club, we have been able to achieve this balance and that all the loyal Dale fans will be pleased with what we have produced.
“Everyone at Errea is looking forward to working with Rochdale over the coming seasons and we hope that it will be a long and happy partnership."
The new 2015-16 season kit is proudly sponsored by Crown Oil and we are delighted to announce Andrew Kelly Lettings as the back of the shirt sponsor.
Designed in consultation with the players and staff, the new kit will remain in keeping with the traditional colours of blue and white for the first choice kit and black and white for the second choice kit. The date ‘1907’ is also embroidered on the back of every shirt to mark the birth of Rochdale AFC.
The first choice goal keeper shirt will be yellow and black and the second choice shirt will be green and black.
