Heritage round- retro kits
Women in league round- pink kits/kits with pink flash
Rivalries round-derby games where posssible
Personally I think these are great ideas for a number of reasons, any new kits produced are bound to be collecters items and if made as limited editions, perhaps numbered also would sell easily enough providing clubs with extra money and maybe extra sponsorship. The biggest advantage to me though is it provides a marketing tool to both the competition and each club, the fact that there is a bit of a unique selling point to a game would surely help clubs promote particular game?
So do people think this is a good idea that could work over here and what themes would you suggest?
Some ideas I've had would be a charity round, either for local charities or all clubs could do the same (might be more of an impact that way) One off kits could be produced etc, free tickets for charity voulenteers.
Amature round, clubs perhaps adopt an amature club, local or otherwise, for a season and lend coaches etc. the amature club could be alloewed to play a curtain raiser at the game let all the amature clubs families etc in for cheap/free?
All the above is just ideas so feel free to be cruel/kind about it and add your own thaughts. would be curious to hear from any aussies to hear their views on how much of an impact the themed rounds have over there.

I completely agree, its so obvious that I don't see why we haven't followed suit. We're a sport with so much rich history we should celebrate it more.
The others sounds good, like has been pointed out it's a free form of marketing, gives the newspapers something to report on. It wouldn't cost a lot either.

I was thinking maybe 5/6 throughout the season, but yes overkill could lessen the impact. I suppose it depends on how well thaught out the themes would be.

say a club did a run of 500 ltd edition shirts then the next season they choose a different retro kit. people don't have to buy the kits. I'm sure a clubs like Hull, Wigan etc could shift 500 extra shirts each year, smaller clubs could produce less, say 300 or so. The clubs could even use the kits as a free incentive for season tickets or at least offer a discount on them for season ticket holders. could be as big as the clubs want it to be.

Knowing Hull they'd pick the heritage shirt with the wrap around comedy shark on it.

Greatest Hull kit ever, at least from an away fans perspective!

my Norweb puffer jacket has weeks of wear left in it yet.
Even as a Wire I am sorry but Westwood is nowhere near as skillful as Super Sam or Ellis.
Wazza's main industrys are service industries, call centres, warehouses and the public sector nowadays. All three are under threat from the Tory cuts.
