Knights unveil ‘modern classic’ 2021 kits

Published: 3 December, 2020 - 6:59 pm

York City Knights are delighted to reveal their brand new playing kits for the 2021 Betfred Championship or Super League season.

In addition, the Knights are pleased to announce the arrival of our Christmas pop-up store at Vangarde Shopping Centre from this Friday, 4th December.

With the historic move to the brand new LNER Community Stadium finally ready, the Knights have delved into the archives for two classic kit designs that we are sure will be a popular hit with the fans.

The home kit is a refreshing modern take on the iconic amber & black chevron design that York RL wore in their first ever season at Huntington in season 1990/91, made famous by none other than the legendary Tawera Nikau.

Our away kit is a vibrant all amber outfit with black trim and is a homage to the 1981 Division 2 Championship winning team who finished above none other than Wigan and big spending Fulham to claim the title, as we celebrate the 40th anniversary of a memorable season. 

Both kits are produced by Manchester-based Supro Sport, and once again our main sponsor is York St John University, who we continue our fantastic partnership with. They are joined once again by Algarve Sports, Monk Bar Model Shop, Autohorn Fleet Services & Hilton Hotel York – who also sponsor the shorts in 2021, and this year we welcome for the first time property development company North Star and renowned tourist board Welcome to Yorkshire.

The Knights are proud to once again represent our community clubs New Earswick All Blacks, York Acorn, Heworth, York Lokos and Harrogate Fire Ants as well as the York & Selby Rugby League Referee’s Society too.

The Knights would like to thank all of our sponsors and partners for their proud support. We look forward to discussing the organisations’ sponsorship support in more detail in the coming weeks.

Knights Chairman Jon Flatman said: “The club is delighted to release these new kits in partnership with Supro.

“We have worked closely with the Supro team to create something quite special, in terms of the team wear and the wider merchandise offer. Part of the commitment from Supro was ensuring the kit and team team-wear is available for the fans from the outset.

“The designs and quality of the 2021 kits are fantastic and really tell a story of our heritage in an exciting and progressive way. They demonstrate the progression we are making as a club but as always very mindful of our history.”

“Thank you to Supro and all our sponsors for their support in what will hopefully be a best selling year!”

Supro Sport CEO Tony Sheridan added: “We are delighted and very proud to announce our partnership with York City Knights. My team have enjoyed working with the club to create two striking new playing kits well in time for Christmas.”

Replica shirts and training wear are in stock and are available to purchase from Friday, 4th December in our pop-up store at Vangarde shopping centre, or in our online shop at right now!
