British sports brand PlayerLayer and the Welsh Netball Association (WNA) have agreed a partnership making PlayerLayer the official kit supplier. The WNA is the national governing body for netball in Wales and oversees the senior Wales squad as well as Superleague franchise, Celtic Dragons.
The agreement sees PlayerLayer become the official kit supplier for both organisations. The Wales national team showed that they can compete with the best in the world with their highest finish in 24 years, 7th place, at the 2015 World Cup. Meanwhile, the Celtic Dragons franchise is the only Welsh team in the prestigious Superleague and has been part of it since its inception in 2005. Its on court vision is to produce highly skilled athletes that can consistently compete at an elite level, striving for international honours, whilst at the same time providing motivational role models that inspire young women to participate more in netball.
“We, at PlayerLayer, are thrilled to be joining forces with the Welsh Netball Association. The agreement sees us take a significant step into the netball market, working with two ambitious teams in Wales Netball and the Celtic Dragons. Both organisations share similar principles and visions to PlayerLayer, and as the sport continues to grow in popularity we believe now is the perfect time to get involved.”
