2019 kits (Merged Threads)

They're saying it's available from 20th July. Whether it's real or not Huddersfield have definitely let themselves get mugged off a bit by PP. First they released a video skit basically saying they sponsored Hudds as that's the only team they could get with the money they had left to play with and now this. Selling out for the money it seems - something I can imagine any SL club would happily do.....we just don't get the offers. 

To be fair, it will probably get far more media coverage than any other sponsorship announcement this season. It's all light-hearted stuff, I liked the announcement video.

On the note of sponsors, ultimately I would like SL to bring in some restrictions swell, in an Ideal world I would like to see 2 sponsors only restricted to the main on the front and a secondary sponsor allowed on the back of the shirts and maybe on the shorts.

I understand the commercial reasons for having numerous sponsors plastered all over the place but IMO it does cheapen the look of the kits and in turn cheapens the look of the sport in general.

Maybe the cut in revenue from having loads of sponsors could be offset by being able to charge more for main sponsors as they brand would stand out more rather than being of of myriad names plastered all over the place.

 

I also understand it's probably a total none starter as the clubs would just want the revenue and probably not look at the bigger picture.

I remember one of Elstone's early aims was to unify and Simplyfy the SL brand image. One of those things was to make the shirts have clear branding etc.

I reckon PP have said "see if you can get this past the FA. If you can't we'll pay the fine". Priceless publicity.

That thought had crossed my mind too, its a classic PP stunt.

But not for Huddersfield.

I can see what's in it for Paddy Power.

I'm not sure there's any amount of money that makes it worth it for Huddersfield Town.

My god that is horrendous, I hope to God that is just a publicity stunt. 

It was just a publicity stunt, actual kit is going to have no sponsorship on at all!

The GB Rugby League Lions seems to be the official title these days.

We all know who the original Lions are but we gave it away

RL first named the GB team ‘Lions’ around 1922 I believe. RU, not until 1950 (?). Got there first again.

IMO the GB ‘Lion’ logo is an absolute classic bit of Graphic Design, haven’t got a clue who did it but it’s absolutely perfect, now this may sound a bit like hyperbole but it’s up there with the apple logo for simplicity and execution.

Anyway, my point being I’m glad to see it back, even just to see it actually being used again.

It looks like the RFL are blatantly ignoring Ireland now if that post if anything to go by. Nice.

I agree with this. Really not remotely interested in Great Britain's return or this thoroughly bizarre nostalgia tour but the GB lion logo is one of the best.

It is a superb classic logo, I don't understand why they didn't simply retain both the nickname and logo when we switched from GB to England. We have England Knights and GB Lions, so its odd the first team is simply called England and have no nickname (I'm going to ignore the seemingly and thankfully now defunct "Wall of White").

Well it does sound like the kind of thing that Paddy Power would do.

Quite. 

You got it, unlike a lot of hard of thinking people.

The home shirt is pretty good:-

Non sponsor

The away shirt looks jolly fine also.

The shirts with the Paddy Power sash on the front  are being auctioned online for charity on a well known website. Some rather high bids being made. An ideal present for one's significant other for Christmas, birthday, anniversary etc perhaps..........
