30 May 2017

Pools are delighted to confirm a brand new partnership with BLK United Kingdom which will see them become the Club’s official kit and training apparel partner.

As a result of the new three-year deal, Pools will be the first professional football clubs in England to wear BLK from the start of the 2017/18 campaign.

BLK UK, one of the fastest-growing sportswear brands in Britain, will now supply playing kit and training wear for our First Team, Reserve Team and Youth Team squads from next term.

The Club joins a group of leading British sports teams supplied by BLK UK, including Premier League rugby club and European Champions Cup winners Saracens, England Rugby League, Scotland Rugby League and England Netball.

“We are delighted to announce BLK United Kingdom as our new kit supplier from the start of next season,” said Chief Executive, Pam Duxbury.

“The brand comes with a great pedigree across professional sport and we’re proud to be the first English club to wear its kit.

“The fact that’s it based in the North East is also an added bonus as its team share the passion for football that exists in this region.”

Mark Holt, Commercial Director of BLK UK, said: “We’re extremely pleased to enter in to this partnership with Hartlepool United.

“This is a great opportunity for BLK United Kingdom to enter professional football and work with a forward-thinking club.

“Working with Hartlepool United is part of our strategy to increase our presence across a growing number of UK sports and support the international reach of the global BLK brand with the supply of high-quality, fit-for-purpose sports apparel.”

Pools and BLK UK will soon unveil next season’s new-look home and away kits which will be made available to fans, along with training kit, from a new Club Shop at The Northern Gas and Power Stadium.
