Time to unveil the new Sussex Sharks Vitality Blast shirt – sponsored by Boundless
Boundless is excited to unveil the new-look Sussex Sharks Vitality Blast shirt for 2018 – complete with the Boundless logo for the second season in a row.
The eye-catching shirt, which will be worn throughout the Sharks’ Vitality Blast campaign, features two vibrant shades of blue and stripes linking to Hove’s iconic deckchairs, and is already proving a big hit with cricket fans.
“We are absolutely delighted with the way the new shirt looks and are very proud to have our name on the front” said Carl Fillery, Chief Executive Officer of Boundless.
“Having agreed a three-year deal, this is part of a long-term commitment to Sussex Cricket. It is a fantastic club with a great heritage and importantly we share many core values.
“Boundless is all about encouraging people to do more with their free time and whether that is watching cricket, playing cricket or just being part of the cricket family, it’s a wonderful sport to be involved with.”
The new shirts have been produced by the Sharks’ official kit partner Surridge and are available in a variety of sizes, priced from £25 for juniors and £35 for adults, from the club shop or through the new www.sussexclubshop.co.uk online store.
Sussex Cricket marketing manager Sean Heal worked alongside Surridge in the creation of the new designs and said: “The new shirts give a nod to the iconic deckchairs in Hove, with the famous stripes running down the body of the shirt, merging with a classic pin stripe, whilst a shark fin motif at the base finishes off the striking new design."
“We hope that our army of loyal fans will enjoy the new look and wear them proudly as they cheer the boys on through the season.”
But it wasn’t just the designers at the helm, as help was sought from the players themselves, with Laurie Evans instrumental in the planning stage.
The batsman said: “It was fantastic to be involved in the whole process. To see your thoughts and ideas develop from paper to the finished product was incredible."
“We could really put our stamp on the shirts we’d get to play in, which will be a massive benefit to the whole squad. To think that our supporters will be wearing the same shirts we helped to create is a real buzz!”
As part of the deal, Boundless members will have the chance to enjoy a range of benefits at Sussex Sharks’ T20 matches and the cricket ground as well.
Official T20 Blast Kit sponsor
Boundless are proud to announce we are continuing our partnership with Sussex County Cricket Club.
A new three-year deal will see Boundless sponsor Sussex Sharks’ T20 Blast shirt for the upcoming 2018, 2019 and 2020 seasons.
Our exciting partnership started last year, with the Boundless logo featuring on the shirts of global stars such as Chris Jordan, Tymal Mills and Luke Wright throughout the 2017 T20 Blast season.
As part of the new deal, Boundless members will have the chance to enjoy a range of benefits at Sussex Sharks’ T20 matches and the cricket ground as well.
Reacting to the new deal, Sussex Cricket’s Business Relationship Manager and former player, Tony Cottey, said:
‘We’re thrilled to be continuing our partnership with Boundless for the next three seasons.
‘I know how proud the squad are to wear shirts carrying the logo of an organisation that provides hundreds of jobs in the county and offers its members across the country such fantastic opportunities.’
Carl Fillery, chief executive of Boundless, said:
‘Following a hugely successful year as Sussex Sharks’ T20 shirt sponsor, we’re thrilled to have renewed our partnership for a further three years.
Sussex Cricket is a fantastic club with a great heritage, and we both share the common aim of providing unforgettable experiences for all the family.
There may be a little while to wait until the action starts, but we can’t wait until the first ball is bowled next season.’
