Durham Women and Nike announce groundbreaking partnership

  • +1

Durham Women have confirmed an exciting new partnership that will see world-leading brand Nike become the club’s official teamwear partner.

It is a ground-breaking agreement that represents Nike’s continued commitment to Women’s Football.

The synergies and ambitions of both organisations to continue to break down barriers for female athletes were clear from the start of discussions.

Alongside getting ‘best in class’ apparel for the players, Nike & Durham Women will look to support local community projects with more girls playing football and chasing the ultimate dream.

The agreement, which begins for the 2023/24 season, will be serviced by industry experts KitKing and their new female-focused brand KitQueen.

As part of the new deal, Nike will be the exclusive providers of all Durham Women’s match kits and training wear at all age groups – while there will be a replica provision for supporters.

It is the latest strong brand partnership agreed by the club as they continue their preparations for the 2023/24 Barclays Women’s Championship season, which kicks-off on the final weekend of August.

Commenting on the exciting agreement, Mark Donnelly of Durham Women said: “We’re absolutely delighted to begin this partnership with Nike.

“To have one of the leading brands in the world approach us and want to work with us for the long-term is a real testament to our continued growth and presence in the women’s game.

“We can’t wait for this partnership to grow and develop, and we know our fans will love the new kits that we will be revealing with Nike soon.”

Parisha Patel, Chief Consumer Officer at Kitking and Co-Founder of KitQueen, added: “The partnership with Nike and Durham Women FC through KitQueen is a great example of how we are working with Nike to enhance the profile and experience of Her team sports through teamwear that supports, engages, and drives performance of female athletes on and off the pitch.”

The design of Durham Women’s 2023/24 Nike home kit has been confirmed and will be revealed in the coming weeks.
