York City Knights are delighted to unveil our 2022 shirts ahead of Thursday night’s Fans’ Forum – with both our principal and alternate designs available online and for purchase from the Club Shop Thursday morning from 10am!
Both shirts continue with the Knights’ traditional colours of white, amber and black and have been modelled for the launch by new recruit Sam Davis and Brendan O’Hagan from our Men’s team as well as York City Knights Ladies’ co-captains Katie Langan and Sinead Peach.
Our principal kit incorporates a new twist on a classic design with a camouflage effect sitting on a white background with amber hoops and black stripes completing the look. The amber and black collar contrasts nicely against the white body and is a slightly deeper v-neck design. Black piping around the sleeves completes the shirt which has already proven popular with the Men’s First-Team Squad.
2022’s alternate shirt sees a traditional rugby league design incorporated into our amber and black colourway, creating a striking look for next season. A predominantly amber shirt, the shoulders and chest are black with black stripes where the two meet. The reverse of the shirt is solely black and the design will no doubt spring comparison with a shirt worn by the Knights in 2015.
Both kits feature our 2022 shirt partners, some of whom will be familiar to Knights fans while some are new members of the Knights family.
York St John University, the club’s principal partner, continue to be feature as the main front of shirt sponsor as well as on the upper back, while Autohorn Fleet Services are once again featured on the right chest.
Hilton York, short sponsors in 2021, return to the collar position they occupied in 2020 while Burflex Scaffolding, York City Knights Foundation’s Main Headline Partner since the start of this year, are a new addition to the shirt, featuring on the lower left sleeve.
Above them are the logos of Laufenn and York Tyre Sales, another partner who joined the Knights in 2021 and have now enhanced their partnership for the coming year.
On the opposite sleeve, Ice Cubed Property Finance – a 2021 player sponsor – has also boosted their partnership, appearing on the upper right sleeve, above the Betfred Championship logo.
YO1 Radio are also a new addition to our playing shirts, featuring on the lower back as they continue to grow their brand across our city and beyond.
Priced at £45 for adults and £35 for kids, our 2022 shirts are available now from our new online store at yorkcityknights.com/store.
From 10am on Thursday, you will also be able to purchase yours from our Club Shop at the LNER Community Stadium. Usually open between 10am and 4pm from Monday to Friday, we will be open all the way through to the start of Thursday’s Fans’ Forum, as well as for thirty minutes towards the end of the evening.
As well as launching our playing shirts, we are also launching our 2022 on and off-field ranges – both of which will be available online and in store from 10am Thursday.
