Nike and England Netball have announced the beginning of a multi-year partnership covering the elite women’s team and the organization's 3,000 clubs across England.
The agreement makes Nike the official partner of England Netball for the first time, and the brand will design and supply on- and off-court kits for the England Vitality Roses during their international Netball competitions.
More than 1.4 million women and girls play netball in England, accounting for the biggest female participation in any sport in the country.
“England Netball and Nike have the shared vision of empowering women and girls in sport and we hope that together we can support the Vitality Roses on their journey to becoming the top-ranked netball team in the world," says Joanna Adams, CEO of England Netball. "We are confident that, together, we will ignite a powerful and inspiring netball culture and make the Netball World Cup 2019 a celebration of women's sport."
David Carmont, VP/GM, Nike EMEA/WEST adds: “We are delighted to announce our partnership with England Netball. We are committed to using our global voice to elevate netball athletes and inspire girls and women in England to play more.”
The Vitality Roses will debut the Nike performance kit during the three-match Vitality Netball International Series against Uganda from November 27 to December 2.
