The EVO-STIK Northern Premier League have announced that Kappa will take over as its official benchwear partner from the 2019/20 season.
In a three-year partnership, the deal will bring improved commercial benefits to the NPL and enhance the delivery of teamwear and replica kit to its 62 member clubs, the league’s website says.
Kappa is worn by professional clubs including Leeds United, Napoli and Real Betis, while they also supply clubs, leagues and associations across the world in a number of sports.
During seasons 2019/20, 2020/21 and 2021/22, all NPL club management teams will wear Kappa benchwear for all league, FA Cup and FA Trophy fixtures.
Further key improvements to the deal is a three-way service level agreement governing orders between NPL clubs and Kappa, which enables clubs to still negotiate their own deals but all orders must be fulfilled within 15 working days including personalisation.
NPL chairman, Mark Harris, said: “We are delighted to welcome such an iconic sports brand in Kappa as a league partner, and more importantly, to have agreed a deal that improves the service provided to our clubs and the value that they receive.
“Our existing deal with current benchwear partners Macron runs for the remainder of this season and we would like to thank them for their support over the past three years.”
