The global sportswear brand, Kukri Sports has landed a three-year partnership with the Yorkshire County Cricket Club and Northern Diamonds Cricket Team.
In this development, Kukri will be seen as the club’s official kit supplier until at least 2025. The company will also supply both teams playing and training wear as well as kits for the Academy and Pathway teams.
Kukri replaces Nike as the kit supplier of the club, who concluded its sponsorship deal with Yorkshire County Cricket Club following the allegations of institutional racism by the former player, Azeem Rafiq.
The international sportswear brand is well known for offering quality products, distinctive designs and exceptional service.
Darren Gough, Managing Director of Cricket – The Yorkshire County Cricket Club, said, “We are delighted that our men’s and women’s teams will wear Kukri kits for the next 3 years. Kukri has a long affiliation with cricket and we are excited to unveil what the players will be wearing in 2022.”

Yorkshire are such a well renowned Club in English cricket and we look forwards to providing high quality Kukri kit for the next 3 years.”
