The new netball kit will reflect the black and gold of Wasps and be produced by iconic sport brand Gilbert, and will be worn throughout the Superleague season.
The club has also announced global car manufacturer Jaguar Land Rover as their Official Main Partner in a multi-year deal, which will see them sponsor the new kit.
The University of Warwick have also been announced as Wasps Netball Club partners, while DS Smith have enhanced their current partnership with Wasps Rugby by extending their support to Wasps Netball. All three parties will feature on the new kit.
David Armstrong, Group Chief Executive officer of Wasps, said: “This is a historic moment for netball in the West Midlands, and everyone can’t wait for our first home match on 5 March.” “As we launch our new Netball kit we are proud to announce that we have partnered up with Jaguar Land Rover, DS Smith and the University of Warwick for the season ahead. “Jaguar Land Rover will be one of the biggest club partners in the Superleague and we hope that working alongside businesses such as theirs we can really raise the profile of netball in the UK. “We’re also grateful to the University of Warwick for becoming our official training base and providing top class facilities to the team. “We are trying to build a winning club here and having these great companies supporting us in a variety of ways is crucial to achieving that – ensuring a bright future for Wasps Netball.” This move sees Jaguar Land Rover build on their already well-established partnership with the Wasps family as partners of the successful Wasps Rugby team. Mark Cameron, Experiential Marketing Director at Jaguar Land Rover, said: “We’re delighted to be joining forces with the Midlands’ newest professional sports team.”
Wasps Netball was formed in June 2016, and since then Director of Netball Tamsin Greenway has assembled a squad of international experience and youth as the club looks to challenge at the top end of the Vitality Netball Superleague.
The squad will wear their new kit for the first time on 21 February when they take on Sirens at Glasgow’s Emirates Arena. Hellen Manufor, Brand Manager at Gilbert Netball, added: “We think the new Wasps Netball kit will go down a real treat with fans and players alike. “It provides the right balance of eye-catching style with light, breathable fabric to deliver the best comfort and support for elite athletes while competing out on court.”
Tickets for Wasps Netball’s first home league game versus Hertfordshire Mavericks are available here starting from £10 for adults while under-10s go free, with group booking at student discounts also available.
