Vikings announce Oxen Partnership

Widnes Vikings are delighted to announce a new and exciting Kit Partnership with Oxen Sports ahead of the 2020 Betfred Championship season.

This news will see the Vikings continue to work alongside Elite Pro Sports, a partnership that has gone from strength to strength since the arrival of the new Board of Directors.

Oxen work alongside both professional and amateur athletes, providing the branded and innovative garments that enhance their training sessions. They also partner with professional UK sports teams to create instantly recognisable kits and garments worn before, during and after games.

Lee Jenkinson, Elite Pro Sports CEO, commented: “We’re delighted to see the Oxen brand sit proudly on the Widnes Vikings apparel from 2020 onwards.

“We’ve developed a fantastic working relationship with club in the past year, especially with Chris Price and Phil Finney, and we are looking forward to being part of the journey over the coming years.

“Oxen has been in the working for a while now but the brand is relatively new to the market. To explain, Oxen is plural for Ox which means – strong, powerful and hard-working.

“The Celts valued Oxen for its virility. When the clan was in trouble, the ox and the bull became symbolic protectors that could improve group wealth.

“We see that as what we do as a business – we impact on our customers and we feel we are in it with them 100 per cent.

“Having been working on the 2020 kits with the club for a number of months now, I am sure that they will be very well received by the fan base when they are launched over the coming weeks.”

Chris Price, Chairman of Widnes Vikings, added: “We’re delighted to announce our new partnership with Oxen Sports and extend our relationship with Elite Pro Sports into 2020 and beyond.

“We’re excited to launch our new and innovative Training Range and Playing Kits ahead of next season, and we’re looking forward to seeing both ranges proudly worn by our supporters on the terraces and throughout the town.

“We have a fantastic working relationship with Lee and everyone else at Elite Pro Sports and we’re looking forward to the continuation of our partnership.”

Our 2020 Home and Away Kit will be launched at an Exclusive Event for Early Bird Season Ticket holders on Tuesday 19th November at the Halton Stadium.

Details regarding our 2020 Training Range will be released in due course via our official website and social media channels.
