The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs and Classic Sportswear have joined forces in an historic agreement that will see Classic be the Official Apparel Partner for the club for the next four years.
The Bulldogs and Classic have a shared history that dates back to 1934. This was the year that saw the Classic brand born and the Bulldogs become part of the NSWRL.
Both parties have experienced great success in the period since, with the Bulldogs claiming five of their eight Premierships with Classic Sportswear as their Official Apparel Partner (1980, 1984, 1985, 1988 and 1995).
Bulldogs Chief Executive Andrew Hill is delighted with the partnership:
"Classic Sportswear are an established brand that are a great fit for the Bulldogs and our fans. We have a strong history with the brand and that history has resulted in some great success for the club and five Premierships. The new partnership coincides with a fresh start for the club and I know that both parties are looking forward to what lies ahead."
Bulldogs Head Coach Dean Pay was also pleased to see Classic Sportswear back on board:
"The club has had some great success with Classic Sportswear over the years and we look forward to the development of a close partnership where both parties are able to achieve some strong results in the coming seasons."
Club Captain Josh Jackson was also looking forward to wearing the new Classic Sportswear kit:
"It is great to be able to wear the Classic brand over the next four years. They are a company that have been around for a long time and align well with the Bulldogs principles of family and unity. We look forward to wearing the Classic brand in coming seasons."
Classic Sportswear Managing Partner, Paul Bouttell said;
"Classic Sportswear are pleased to be part of the rich history and DNA of the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs.
We are excited to deliver high quality, innovative products using cutting edge technology, designed for ultimate performance, durability and comfort."
