BLK is pleased to announce a new partnership with South African Super Rugby franchise, The Sharks until December 2018.

The new announcement comes as BLK continue to build partnerships with elite sporting teams around the globe with BLK, CEO Tyron Brant saying the opportunity to join forces with one of the world’s most famous and recognised rugby brands provided a perfect platform for BLK’s to showcase their technically advanced apparel.

“The Sharks have long since been celebrated as a key global rugby brand which is reflected in their relentless pursuit of success both on and off the field,” Brant said.

"As the BLK brand evolves it is important we are aligned with brands that share our values and our drive for success."

The Sharks CEO John Smit said, The Sharks were looking forward to developing a relationship with a brand that has a distinct heritage and understanding of rugby, but more importantly has shown consistent advancements in apparel and a proven record of designing popular supporter ranges across various codes.

The Sharks Marketing Manager, Michael Ablett added: “The Sharks are committed to becoming the premier rugby franchise in the world, both on and off the field. This partnership is a fundamental step to attaining that mission.
