What a hard secret to keep these past few weeks! Today we get to announce that SAVAGE has signed on to be the official apparel parnter of the QPL. The Quidditch Premier League will bring a new level of competitive play to the summer months in the United Kingdom. Check out the press release below:
The Quidditch Premier League is delighted to announce that SAVAGE will be the league’s official apparel provider.
The company will produce the on-field kits and Quidditch Premier League branded gear in a three-year partnership that begins with the league’s inaugural 2017 season.
“SAVAGE has made a strong name for themselves in the USA by providing apparel for Major League Quidditch, and so we are naturally thrilled to be bringing their high standards to the UK with the Quidditch Premier League,” said Director Jack Lennard. “Having admired their products from across the Atlantic for years now (and as a proud owner of some of their kits!), I can’t wait to get to work with SAVAGE to create stunning apparel for our players and fans.”
SAVAGE began in 2009 as a customizable apparel company. Within eight years, SAVAGE has become well known in several niche sports including quidditch. Priding itself on offering high-quality gear with in-house designers, SAVAGE has become a go-to for teams looking to be a step ahead of the competition. With this next step, SAVAGE plans on expanding its reach further into the European quidditch market.
“When I first heard about the Quidditch Premier League, I was filled with excitement,” says SAVAGE founder Todd Curran. “After working with the Major League Quidditch, I knew SAVAGE needed to support the Quidditch Premier League in some form. After a productive meeting with Jack Lennard, we knew we wanted to be 100 percent in. We had been looking for a way to expand our reach into the quidditch market and also the European market. Our partnership will be a driving force for SAVAGE to lower its international costs, which may have held back some customers.”
The brands and kits for each team will be announced in the coming two months, and the kits will then be available through the SAVAGE website. Kits will be offered to players at a significantly reduced cost, ensuring that the dramatically increased quality of the apparel does not affect the affordability of participating in the Quidditch Premier League.
In addition to this, players will be offered the opportunity to reduce the price of their kits even further with each replica kit that they sell. Details of this price-reduction scheme will be announced in February.
SAVAGE has also generously offered a 20 percent PRO discount to all Quidditch Premier League players for their online shop. This offer cannot be used in conjunction with the reduced player kit costs nor with the kit price reduction scheme.
Finally, we are excited to confirm that SAVAGE will be the first of our individual team sponsors, and their brand will be featured on the kits of the London Monarchs. We expect to have similar sponsorships negotiated and agreed for all eight Quidditch Premier League teams for the 2017 season.
