Yorkshire County Cricket Club has announced a four-year official kit deal with Nike. The famous logo of Nike will be emblazoned on both the kits of Men’s and Women’s team from the 2021 season.
Yorkshire’s County Championship shirt will have a unique design with the capped players’ sweaters mark of dark blue, light blue and a yellow trim to be seen detailed around the neckline and side of the jumpers, along with a distorted Yorkshire rose prominent through the shirt design. On the other hand, for the Royal London One Day shirts there will be a collar this time. This is done keeping in mind the health and fitness of the player to lessen their tiredness from sun during long days in the field.
As per the club’s view, the Vikings’ new T20 shirt is “arguably the most eye-catching kit to date”, that previously sported light blue colour shirt. However, the new kit will feature rose patterns all over the shirt in the Dark Blue kit, which will be enough to grab attention aided with the Nike logo.
Yorkshire’s T20 captain David Willey reportedly provided significant input from his side regarding the design for their upcoming kit. He lets out his excitement regarding the fact that Nike are partnering up with them for their new kits.
“In terms of design for the T20 kit, I wanted something representative of the brand of cricket that I would like the lads to play this summer. It is bold and leaves an impression, and has gone down very well with the squad.”
Lauren Winfield-Hill, who plays for Yorkshire, Northern Diamonds and the England National Team, too couldn’t hide her excitement to wear the Yorkshire and Northern Diamond kit with a Nike branding.
