partnership he had so long been waiting for. A partnership between two great
and prestigious players in the region, which also represents the continuity of
a cooperation that has always been based on a deep-rooted acquaintance and
features the Club's traditional black & white combination of colours for
the 1st uniform with the sublimation-printed logo in tone on tone
black/grey, over a white background.The grandad collar, slightly wider than usual, is black and reflects the inserts, in the same colour, on the sides of the shirt. Between the
Erreà logo on the right and the company's crest on the left appears the Italian
flag, underlining the national belonging of the Parma team that shall take part
to the most important international competitions (PRO12 Championship and
Challenge Cup). The matching shorts and socks are black with the Zebre logo in white.
The 2nd uniform is in shades of pale blue. It features the
Club's stylised logo on the chest and, all over the back of the jersey, the
traditional zebra pattern enriched by the Italian flag, just below the collar.
The collar and the side inlaids are blue just like the pants and the socks. Both uniforms are made in "tricot
rugby", a breathable,
stretch, and high resistance textile that is perfect for the toughest matches.
As well as
the competition and the official uniforms, Erreà will also equip the team with
the Active-Tense Erreà line of garments, a special range of technical base
layer, thus providing a complete set of sports wear for the Club.
One of the main features that
characterise this sponsorship agreement is the special line of merchandising
that Erreà is currently designing in collaboration with the Club for all
supporters and fans. It consists of a range of garments that will be launched
at different times during the season, in order to maintain a sense of novelty
which shall characterise this very promising partnership.
