Premier League bound Norwich City have named Errea as their new kit suppliers as the club prepares to return to the top flight of English soccer in 2011/12.
The Parma-based sportswear company replaces Xara in a one-year deal thought to be worth a low seven-figure sum.
Errea’s kit sponsorship deal will see the company manufacturer home, away and replica kits plus training wear for the Canaries.
Will Hoy, head of sales and marketing for the Canaries, said: “Norwich City is delighted to have signed up for an exciting partnership with Errea to be our official technical kit supplier.
“It is imperative that you get your home, away and training wear right and Errea impressed us with their ability to incorporate leading fashion design into a technically excellent product that our fans and players will be proud to wear.”
Errea sales director Fabrizio Taddei added: “We are delighted to be the technical kit supplier of Norwich City. Having worked so closely with Norwich over the past few months, with the entire clothing range being designed together and the final choice always being made by the club, we feel that this is the start of a partnership that will last for many years.
“Once the fans see the new Creato in Italia range we are sure they will be delighted not only with the styling and quality, but also with the fact that the clothing is produced in the EU and carries the unique Oeko-Tex non-toxic textiles guarantee.”
Paul Lambert’s Canaries finished second in the Championship in 2010/11, their first season in English soccer’s second tier after winning promotion from League One, to earn a place in the Premier League for the first time since 2004/05.
