“We are delighted to unveil (officially!) the new 2022/23 Home Jersey. A lot of hard work has gone in by my team and our partners at Errea, together with club partners Suit Direct and Evolution Risk Management to collaborate on a kit that we believe will be one of the most striking in the football league. We hope the fans enjoy the quality and design and we are excited to roll out the whole range over the coming weeks to ensure our supporters have the choice of shirts, training wear and accessories ahead of the new season. I would like to thank club partners Suit Direct and Evolution who adorn the front and back of the home shirt and Cornertone who continue on the back of the shorts. We wanted to produce a range that gives us an identity and I firmly believe we have done this with Errea."

“When we met with Stephen there was never any doubt we would renew our sponsorship. It’s been our great pleasure to be part of the Hartlepool United journey over the last two and a half years and we can’t wait to see what the future holds over the coming years. Being involved with Hartlepool United isn’t just a sponsorship to us, it’s an opportunity to be part of something that is important to our town. As a Hartlepool business, we feel, it’s important that local companies get behind the club just as our incredible fans have done over the recent years. We’ve been lucky to be part of some of the most special days in the clubs history as a sponsor and we look forward to more special days in the upcoming season and beyond. Thanks for the opportunity, up the pools".
