Classic Sportswear Team Up With South Sydney Rabbitohs on Special Members’ Jersey

South Sydney Rabbitohs

Classic Sportswear have announced a new three-year partnership with the South Sydney Rabbitohs, as well as a special Members Jersey for the upcoming season.

Classic Sportswear will be the Official Apparel Partner of the club, producing the on-field and training kits for the Rabbitohs NRL, Canterbury Cup, Harvey Norman NSW Women’s and Jersey Flegg squads from 2021 onwards.

“When you think Classic Sportswear you think Rugby League, and when you think Rabbitohs you think of our huge, passionate Membership base.”

Synonymous with Rugby League at all levels, Classic Sportswear has been delivering high-quality sportswear for over 85 years. 100% Australian owned, it is recognised throughout the sporting industry for its exceptional products for elite athletes and fans.
2020 has been full of challenges, but one constant through it all has been the South Sydney spirit on display from Rabbitohs Members, which Classic Sportswear are excited to be a part of.

Rabbitohs Members have rallied behind the Club, nearly surpassing the 30,000 Member mark for just the fifth time in the Club’s history. The Rabbitohs asked their Ticketed Members to pledge their Memberships for the 2020 season, and so far over 6800 of the Members have done so.

In turn, the Rabbitohs have teamed up with Classic Sportswear to come up with a way to say ‘thank you’ to their Ticketed Members, with a special, first-of-its-kind Rabbitohs Member Jersey that will feature the names of all Tickets Members who pledge being proudly produced by Classic Sportswear.

Rabbitohs CEO Blake Solly is excited about the partnership with Classic Sportswear and the Thank You Members Jersey that will kick off the partnership.

“Our Members have been nothing but staunch supporters of our Club throughout the whole COVID-19 period and we want to say thank you to them for always standing by us, and there was no better way to kick off our partnership with Classic Sportswear than this very special Thank You Members Jersey,” Mr. Solly said.

“We’ve had over 6,800 of our Ticketed Members pledge their Membership despite them not knowing if they were going to be able to go to any games at all this season, as recently as May this year, and we want to recognise all of those Ticketed Members who have and will pledge their Members by featuring their name on the Rabbitohs Jersey alongside their family, friends and fellow Members.

“When we talked to Warren Carney and his team at Classic Sportswear about the best way to kick start our partnership, they jumped at the chance to produce this special merchandise item at a discounted rate for our Members.”

“When you think Classic Sportswear you think Rugby League, and when you think Rabbitohs you think of our huge, passionate Membership base.”

“We’re bringing them together to say thank you and to welcome Classic Sportswear into our family. The synergy could not be better. We’ve both been part of Rugby League forever and a day and we can service the oldest, proudest and loudest Club and Membership base in the competition.

“At the Rabbitohs we are all about that feeling of belonging to something special and our Members certainly belong to our family, a family that now includes the great people at Classic Sportswear.”

Warren Carney, Managing Director at Classic Sportswear, is excited at the opportunity to partner with the South Sydney Rabbitohs and become part of the family at the most successful and historic club in the NRL.

“Just like the Rabbitohs the Classic Sportswear brand has been part of the fabric of Rugby League for much of its existence, and we are very proud of our history of producing elite sports apparel since 1934” said Mr. Carney.
“We also see great synergies between our two brands, particularly the way the Rabbitohs and Classic Sportswear harness our wonderful heritage but also continue to evolve and contemporise.

“Everyone at Classic is proud to be launching our partnership with the Rabbitohs via this special first-of-its-kind Thank You Members Jersey, with an opportunity for Rabbitohs members to add their names to the first playing jersey to be worn in 2021.
“Classic is passionate about supporting Rugby League and we look forward to working closely with the Club to provide all Rabbitohs members and fans with quality apparel from next season.”
