The Leicester Tigers have announced a new three-year deal with Canterbury which sees them bring to an end their traditional partnership with Cotton Traders.

Canterbury has already signed up to be England's kit manufacturers for the next four years and their partnership with the Tigers sees their influence extend into England's domestic league.

The Leicester Tigers' chief executive Simon Cohen has praised Cotton Traders for their part in the club's recent history while also welcoming on board new kit supplies Canterbury.

"We are excited to partner with Canterbury, given their unrivalled experience of providing teams with the strongest, most technologically advanced kits available," Cohen said. "Their recognised prowess and heritage in rugby is perfectly aligned with the Tigers' culture and determination to remain at the top of European club rugby. We would also like to thank Cotton Traders for their commitment to the club over the years."
