    BLK have joined the Western Province Rugby sponsorship fold, in an initial two-year deal that will see them produce both the Stormers and Western Province jerseys going forward, bringing with them a proven track record in making quality sports apparel. 

    Created in 2011, BLK produces innovative, quality player tested apparel and accessories. It is the relentless pursuit of perfection during both design and production which has enabled BLK to evolve and build a reputation as the toughest and most durable sporting brand on the planet.

    The all-new 2019 BLK home Stormers jersey features a modern twist on the traditional blue and white hoops, a silhouette of the iconic Table Mountain on the back, #WeStandTogether text on the inner collar and encapsulates both the Stormers' traditions and the beauty of Cape Town.

    It will be a great addition to any game-day merchandise collection.

    The away jersey is a markedly different black design with a yellow trim and a new-age take on the traditional hoops in the form of soundwaves which symbolise the thunder of the storm and the noise made by the Newlands Faithful.

    Western Province Rugby Group CEO Paul Zacks said that it is great to grow the sponsorship base and partner with an internationally renowned brand such as BLK.

    "We are very excited about having BLK join us as an apparel sponsor for the Stormers and Western Province teams," he said.

    "We already have some fantastic sponsors in our stable, such as title sponsor DHL and associate sponsors Brightrock, Land Rover and LFP, so to bring BLK on board as well is another feather in our cap and demonstrates the appeal and strength of the Stormers and Western Province brands to corporates.

    "They have produced two quality and fashionably appealing jerseys, which I am sure our Faithful supporters will absolutely enjoy and wear with pride," he said.
