Swinton Lions launch their 2021 home kit voted as the best in the RFL’s World Cup of Kits competition.
Appropriately in Rugby League World Cup year, our 2021 principle playing colours for both our Lions and newly formed Lionesses pays homage to the traditional Swinton Lions shirt which recently won the Rugby League’s prestigious World Cup of kits tournament on Twitter.
Designed by our team wear partners SuPro, our blue jersey with the instantly recognisable white “V” is of course iconic in the eyes of Lions supporters.
The royal blue top with white “V” first saw the light of day at the Lancashire Cup Final of 29th October 1960 and soon saw back-to-back Championship successes in 1963 and 1964, but 60 years later it is still the kit which most resonates with the Swinton name across the world of rugby league football.
The OFFICIAL most iconic kit in the history of the British game will therefore no doubt prove to be a big hit with Lions followers, who will be eagerly looking forward to getting back on the terraces following the enormous challenges we’ve all faced over the past year.
We’d also like to take this opportunity to pay a special thank you to each of our proud sponsors and club partners, each of whom features on the new shirt:-
Our headline club sponsor is now GLOSSOP CARAVANS, whose logo is emblazoned across the front of the new design.
On the chest we also have the WHITE SWAN HOTEL of Swinton, and up on the collars CAMWAY INSTALLATIONS.
On the sleeves we feature ADVANCED STEEL SERVICES, TITAN STEEL, and our official travel partners SWAN’S TRAVEL.
On the reverse DAISYMILL TECHNOLOGIES will sit proudly above the player number, and beneath it we feature the logo of the magnificently successful supporter led organisation, PRIDE BUILDER.
