Cornwalll RLFC Partner With Whirlwind Sports

February 14, 2023

On the eve of the 2023 Betfred League 1 season commencing, Cornwall RLFC are delighted to announce Whirlwind Sports as the club’s official kit supplier and retail partner.

The agreement will run until the end of the 2025 campaign and once again, the club are delighted to partner with a brand that is synonymous with sporting excellence here in the Duchy.

Whirlwind Sports will be selling official Cornwall RLFC apparel both online and in their four shops across the Duchy which are situated in Truro, Camborne, Helston and Penzance. 

Since 1980, Whirlwind Sports has been providing sports clothing, equipment brands and footwear from around the globe. 

The family-run company have always been synonymous with Cornish rugby throughout their existence, providing for players and supporters here in the heart of the Duchy and further afar too.

A partnership of this kind is in keeping with the club’s mantra from the day it was incepted – Kernow Kynsa, which translates to Cornwall first and this new arrangement will see all the Choughs’ retail and technical kit supply managed here in Cornwall. 

Whirlwind were the club’s first ever retail partner in 2022 and with ties now further strengthened, both parties will continue to grow during Cornwall’s second professional season which starts on Sunday.

Before the Choughs make the trip to Birmingham to face Midlands, both home and away jerseys for the upcoming season, along with a brand new leisure range, will be available for pre-order from Friday, February 17 at 9.00am.

Our new away ensemble, which will be worn in the Second City on Sunday, will also be showcased at the same time that it will be available for pre-order. 

“Cornwall RLFC is proud to announce this partnership with such a prestigious organisation as Whirlwind Sports,” said chief commercial officer Rob Butland. “The Cornwall RLFC ethos is Kernow Kynsa which means ‘Cornwall first’. This ethos is all about working with Cornish businesses wherever possible and this partnership embodies that ethos perfectly.

“Whirlwind Sports have a rich history and heritage entrenched within Cornish sport and we see this partnership as a significant step forward in our commercial and technical operations providing us with on-field and off-field garments, a bricks and mortar shopping experience for fans in Cornwall and a comprehensive online platform for Cornwall RLFC fans around the globe.” 

Craig Billing, managing director of Whirlwind Sports, added: “We are real proud to announce that Whirlwind Sports has teamed up with the Duchy’s very own Rugby League Club, where we are the clubs official kit manufacturer and retail partner.

“We look forward to growing the partnership with the Duchy’s club to further develop community ties in any way possible, assisting in the promotion of keeping active physically and socially with the support of the rugby league from grass roots through to the professional game.

“This means we have rugby all year round for One and All.”
