AFL Hunter Central Coast Announces Preferred Apparel Supplier
AFL Hunter Central Coast is pleased to announce that S-Trend (STR) have agreed to be the preferred apparel supplier for the League for the next three seasons (2020-2022). This partnership will see STR design and develop pro quality on-field and off-field apparel for AFL HCC representative teams as its preferred apparel supplier. The partnership will also see STR become the preferred apparel supplier for the league’s clubs.
“AFL is a core focus for STR and our commitment to the Hunter region is strong. We are extremely proud to build on our existing involvement in AFL with this partnership. This represents the continued growth of our apparel brand in AFL and coincides perfectly with the opening of our new state-of-the-art Newcastle branch and the launch of our new branding – A STR IN THE MAKING.” says Douglas Tsoi, GM of STR Australia. “We look forward to having a direct impact on developing grass roots football throughout the Hunter and Central Coast region.”
AFL HCC Community Football Manager Sam Zikman applauded the partnership, “AFL Hunter Central Coast are excited to form a partnership with S-Trend for the next 3 years, the partnership links AFL Hunter Central Coast with a local apparel supplier which prides itself on quality and customer service. We look forward to forming a strong bond between the two organisations in the years to come, as we both strive to deliver exceptional service to the AFL Hunter Central Coast clubs and wider community.”
AFL Hunter Central Coast Clubs executives will be provided with a number of initiatives to transition to STR as their apparel supplier over the coming off season, which will include the option of all clubs opening an on-line store, allowing players and supporters to purchase items directly from STR and having them delivered to the club for collection, saving volunteers valuable time and freeing up club funds currently tied up in the provision of stock.
Clubs will be given the opportunity to check out the STR range of on-field and off-field apparel at an upcoming meet and greet at STR’s Mayfield Office.
AFL Hunter Central Coast is excited about this new opportunity with a locally based supplier.
