Kappa shirtWe're going Kappa for the Germany Tour in August of 2012.

After many years with Adidas shirts, despite a brief foray into Kappa in 2008 (for our second shirts), we've obtained some Kappa branded shirts for the tour.

The red shirts come with the Sassco badge on the front, along with the tour logo, plus names and numbering on the reverse. The goalkeeper jersey is black.

This is the third time that Sassco have gone with Kappa. The aforementioned second shirt was the first time, but the basketball shirts were supplied by Kappa directly and the obvious progression is to use the same supplier for the tour.

The shirts will come in various sizes (as requested by those on the tour) and they are in long sleeve. The players will keep the shirts after the tour.

We are also looking to get non-branded (but Sassco logo applied) polo shirts and zip tops. These would be worn on the flight there, as well as to and from the games.
