This year sees Leicestershire County Cricket Club players at every level proudly wear the same 2020 cricket kit. As the club unveils their brand new look, we’ve also got a shirt to give away to one lucky Cool As Leicester follower and we’ll get it signed by all the players too.
This year is the first time in the club’s history that the Academy teams, Leicestershire Young Cricketers and Leicestershire Women and Girls teams will wear the same apparel as the professional first team players.
Sean said the intention behind an all-inclusive kit was to strengthen the Foxes’ brand and celebrate cricket talent at every level.
“This year’s kit for our cricketers will be one to remember as it’s the first time in our history that our players, across the club, will wear the same kit” said Sean. “This, in itself, marks the start of a new chapter for the Foxes.”
Mehmooda Duke MBE DL, Chairman of Leicestershire County Cricket Club said: “It’s fantastic that we now have all of our players wearing the same kit. It really shows a sense of unity, and inclusivity across the club and it truly is an important moment in the club’s history.
“At Leicestershire County Cricket Club, we are extremely proud to be at the heart of a richly diverse city and we are working hard to continue our work towards being even more inclusive and this is one way of making everyone who pulls the shirt on feel that they are a Fox.”
The kit that the four arms of the club will be wearing will be known as the First XI’s Vitality Blast kit which features a woven design as its main focus point as well as a modern twist on the club’s traditional black and gold colours for the T20 format.
The Women’s and Girls teams are sponsored by long-standing partner, De Montfort University, which has supported the teams – the Leicestershire Vixens – to wear the same kit as the First XI at the Fischer County Ground. This is a momentous occasion within the women’s game in Leicestershire.
The exclusive kit is available to buy now via Surridge Sports.
