KitQueen, a leading online retailer of women’s team wear is proud to announce its sponsorship of the Scottish Thistles, Scotland’s national netball team, currently ranked 10th out of 40 in the World Netball rankings. Not only does this announcement mark KitQueen’s first major sponsorship, but also celebrates an exciting collaboration as the Thistles prepare for the Netball World Cup 2023 in Cape Town, South Africa that will run from 28th July to 6th August.
As part of the sponsorship, KitQueen have worked with Nike to design the Thistles World Cup dress, a dress design that embodies the pride of the Scottish thistle and the luck and positive energy of Scottish marble. It’s a unique dress that players will feel proud to wear representing their country in South Africa, while maintaining its functionality to keep the players performing at their best on court as they continue to make significant strides in the netball world.
“We are so honoured to be partnering with the Scottish Thistles in the lead-up to the momentous Netball World Cup,” says Parisha Patel, Chief Consumer Officer at KitKing and Co-founder of KitQueen. “As a passionate netball player myself, I know what this World Cup means to the players, and to be able to work with Netball Scotland to design this dress has been a real achievement for KitQueen. Together we have created a dress that brings pride to the players, unites them as a team and inspires them on to excel on court and achieve great success during the tournament.”
KitQueen understands that women shop differently and have different needs and considerations to men when it comes to teamwear. Women’s bodies evolve throughout their lifetime, and at each stage they need the right support and kit to keep them engaged and playing team sports. KitQueen’s expertise in teamwear has quickly made them the go-to choice among female sports teams and organisations across the country.
The new female teamwear-focussed brand is part of the larger KitKing family which has 30 years of experience in the teamwear industry and long-standing relationships with sports brands including the global leader Nike. Hoping to follow in the footsteps of its parent brand, KitQueen plans to make a name for itself in a surprisingly untouched portion of the sportswear market.
As the Thistles embark on their South African journey, KitQueen’s sponsorship cements the brand’s dedication to supporting female-led sports teams through teamwear that supports, engages, and drives performance of female athletes.
