their stuff is overpriced tat - they do newcastle's kit and it is dreadful - they messed up the sponsor so every shirt looks like it has a massive 4 on the front of it

Never actually got hold of any but the kit they did for the Windies looked really nice.

I was gonna say the Windies stuff is quite nice.

Do think it's pretty good to have a British manufacturer with an operating setup here (I believe)

I had not heard of them until this year. I prefer they stick with the usual brands so you know the quality and sizing plus does make a difference with the younger market to have a well known brand. I really liked the NB kits and merch.

They sponsor Andy Murray since he left Under Armour and their casual clothes seem to be of better quality than the replica stuff. Somebody pointed out the Newcastle kit issues, they've had similar problems at Wolves. They're positioning at the premium fitness sector so ECB makes sense (see previous sponsors like Waitrose, Natwest, Vodafone, err.. Tetleys?) and I see it that they are boosting brand awarenes to sell more of their gym clothing. I can't see them making a big splash in the equipment or footwear space.

Apparently Umbro and Slazenger were the other rival bidders so NB must've lost interest/already achieved what they set out to achieve - the deal is 25m over 10 years so they're here for the foreseeable.

No money in sponsoring England for NB if they have to fork out for testing their softs etc each year

The next question is does this mean that Joe Root will be getting a new sponsor? There are a number of Ollie Pope fans in my club who stocked up on GM kit for Christmas being grumpy this summer. Will the same happen to the Root fans?!

How about England Neon kit?   Your training tops look very nice!

Not sure I could ever see Slazenger sponsoring England or similar - my boys would go rage as perceived as a terrible brand these days since you know who took over them.

Apparently they are already signed up as Jos Butler's  training apparel and lifestyle partner although I must confess that that big announcement had bypassed me

Will be interesting what the market holds for cricket-only brands outside of the Indian market if companies with deep pockets like Adidas and New Balance are pulling back

I would be surprised if the Root/NB deal wasn't signed for the same duration as the England/NB contract so there may be an England skipper searching for a new sponsor. Back to GM?
