adidas to supply stylish kits to Wrexham FC
Apr '12
Wrexham FC will kick off next season in style after signing a two-year kit supply partnership with adidas.

It is 34 years to the day that Wrexham memorably clinched promotion to English football's second tier with a 7-1 win over Rotherham United, when Arfon Griffiths' star-studded side were resplendent in adidas.

The sportswear giant has now renewed its partnership with the club to supply all playing and training kit until the end of the 2013-14 season.

A launch date for The Red Dragons' new home shirt will be announced in due course along with price and size details. New away and third strips will also be unveiled soon.

Wrexham first wore the famous Three Stripes in the two legs of the memorable European Cup Winners' Cup quarter final against Anderlecht during the 1975-76 season. Adidas went on to supply the club's kit for four seasons between 1977 and 1981.

Wrexham FC chief executive, David Roberts, said: "We are delighted to team up with adidas again, particularly at a time where the club is enjoying a magnificent season.

"adidas were our kit suppliers during one of the most successful periods in the club's history and it seems fitting to announce the deal 34 years after the club won promotion to the Second Division wearing an adidas strip.

"They are a worldwide brand and have a proven track record for producing high quality sportswear."

Steve Holland, Commercial Club Partnerships Manager at adidas, said: "We are delighted to link up with Wrexham again as they look to bounce back into the Football League.

"I'm sure most Wrexham fans will be aware of the history the club and adidas already share and we are thrilled to play a part in what will hopefully be another exciting and successful period."
