New Beginnings as Italian Sportswear Manufactures Erreà become Official Technical Partners for Hartlepool United FC.
Hartlepool United are delighted to announce Erreà as technical kit and training wear partners for the 2022/23 and 2023/24 seasons.
Erreà, an Italian sportswear provider are based in the beautiful city of Parma and specialise in the manufacture of technical sportswear providing professional sports teams all over the world with market leading products across 80 different countries. Founded in 1988, Errea is a leading brand, universally recognised as being synonymous with quality, expertise and competence in professional sports.
The deal sees the famous Errea brand not only supply the players with an exciting personalised range of playing kits for the next two seasons, but also we have collaborated on huge range of training wear, travel wear, pre-season, lifestyle and matchday ranges together with a carefully selected range of accessories.
Speaking on the exciting new agreement, COO Stephen Hobin said “ I am really excited to announce this partnership which I am sure will be very positively received with our supporters and players alike. It was extremely important to land this deal and it has been in the making for several months. Never again will we be in the position we were in last season where our supporters wanted to buy shirts for the season only to be left disappointed and frustrated. This deal is a serious deal for a club in the EFL2 and we have placed huge orders which are currently in manufacture to meet our expected demand. I have worked with Errea before and I have a very good working relationship with Fabrizio Taddei and his colleagues over in Parma. One of the key things for me in this deal was to create wonderful, exciting kits and associated ranges that were truly unique and bespoke to this football club. We also needed a safe pair of hands and in Errea I know we have a solid operator who will deliver. In my 6 years at Norwich City for example I cannot remember a time that Errea let us down and what you tend to find is when clubs leave Errea to try someone new, they always go back eventually. Personally for me this was a promise I made early doors on my arrival and I was very determined to deliver a great range, at an affordable price and on time well in advance of the new season”
Fabrizio Taddei, Head of Global Partnerships at Errea added:
“It is with great pleasure that we welcome Hartlepool United to the Erreà family. While our history is not as long as Hartlepool’s, we are both family owned and working hard to build on success. As such, we see this as a true partnership and are looking forward to working closely with everyone at the club over the next seasons and to creating not just some great match shirts, but also distinctive and stylish ranges that we hope will be loved by both players and fans alike”
The club shop will close for refurbishment and a thorough rebrand on May 9th and reopen at the end of June in time for our exciting HOME KIT LAUNCH. Home shirts for the 2022/23 season will go on sale Thursday 7th July at 9.am, followed by our new away strip which will be on sale Thursday 21st July followed by a live launch of our new for this season 3rd Strip which the team will play in for the first time in our final pre season friendly of the summer at home on Monday 25th July.
