Vikings unveil new kit to specatators
11:47pm Sunday 1st September 2013 in Sport
In what the Club believes to be a first in rugby league, Widnes fans in attendance at today’s Widnes Vikings versus Hull KR game were offered the opportunity to gain a sneak peek at what their Vikings heroes will be wearing at The Select Security Stadium, in Super League XIX.
As always, the Club strives to be innovative and one step ahead of the game, and used this game as an ideal platform to showcase the new home strip to their fans.
The 2014 home strip incorporates the thick black and white hoops that were synonymous with many successful Widnes teams throughout the club’s proud and illustrious history. The ‘V’ design that has proven popular with the Vikings in more recent times is also included, as too is the ‘Star’, in reference to the clubs World Club Challenge triumph of 1989.
The striking shirt bears a new primary sponsor in Maltacourt across the chest with the logos of each of the club’s other business partners; O2 Think Big!, USN and STATSports, also present.
