Newcastle University Students’ Union, in partnership with Newcastle University, is pleased to announce Sportsworld NE Ltd. as the new kit supplier for Athletic Union Sports Clubs.
Sportsworld NE Ltd will be supplier of high quality Canterbury kit to students that join and AU Sports Club. They will also source the leisurewear for the CPRS, Estates Support and Sports and Exercise Science Staff.
Clara Pettitt, NUSU AU Officer 2017-18 commented: ‘we are delighted that Canterbury will be the sports kit supplier for AU Clubs and our individual athletes, as we come to an agreement with them to supply both playing kits and training wear for the 2018-19 academic year.’
The kit will be ordered through a local supplier with the added benefit of a dedicated online shop providing a portal for students to purchase their sportswear quickly and easily.
All products will also be available in the NUSU Shop (both online and in store) and directly from the supplier.
Sportsworld NE Ltd is a family run business in Northumberland that has previous experience working with AU Clubs, and we hope this proves to be a huge advantage. Delivery time for products is expected to be significantly shorter than in previous years, and at a comparable price.
This is the first time that all AU Sports Clubs will be sourcing kit from the same supplier and wearing the same style playing and training gear. We expect this will result in a more professional, streamlined look that captures the spirit of togetherness we encourage on the playing fields.
With an exclusive relationship with the supplier and a dedicated accounts manager, we hope this becomes a long-lasting deal. Although the contract is agreed until 31 March 2020, there are options to extend this until 31 March 2022, and we hope our association extends well beyond this.
AU Clubs and Staff can currently order their playing kit and leisurewear through Andrew Hodgson, the Managing Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org until the online shop is created.
Mr Hodgson quoted ‘we are delighted to be continuing our association with Newcastle University and supplying a wide range of sports kit to the staff and students at Newcastle University’.
