Ulster Rugby and Kukri Sports have announced a new five-year contract, which sees the Lancashire-based bespoke sportswear experts continue to be the province's official kit, training and leisure wear supplier until 2023.

Kukri has been supplying Ulster Rugby with playing kit and official apparel since 2008 and this new extended contract comes after a positive working relationship has been forged over the last 10 years.

The deal includes the supply of kit to the Men's and Women's senior teams, the Ulster Academy and age-grade teams, as well as coaches, referees and staff working across the province of Ulster. Replica ranges for fans will continue to be developed. 

Terry Jackson, director and general manager of Kukri Ireland, said: "Kukri Sports has been a leader in the rugby marketplace since its inception in 1999 and our long-standing relationship with Ulster is proof of our commitment to both the province and the pursuit of excellence in rugby both on and off the field.

"We look forward to producing a diverse range of playing kit, plus training and leisure wear, over the course of this new contract, producing sportswear that the club and the fans can be proud of.

"We feel a sense of pride seeing the players in their Kukri kits at the majestic Kingspan Stadium and we are delighted to support Ulster and the great work they do both in the community and for the sport of rugby at grassroots level."
