Hull KR launch charity shirt to commemorate Armistice centenary

Hull KR have launched a limited edition charity shirt for the new season which commemorates the Armistice centenary.

The special shirt, which acts as the club’s third kit, has unusually been released before the home or away shirts for the 2019 Super League season.

Rovers will release the shirt tomorrow to mark the 100 year anniversary since the end of World War One on November 11, 1918.

The shirt features a Poppy field design, along with crosses of remembrance and depictions of soldiers.

Hull KR’s Head of Marketing, Ticketing and Retail, Craig Franklin, commented: “It’s an absolute honour to reveal this shirt and pay tribute to all those who have made sacrifices to keep us safe.

“Whilst our membership campaign theme for 2019 is Red Army, we felt it was important we also tell the story of the serious side of War and horrific consequences it can have.

“We value our role within the community and acknowledge that we have a role to play to help educate the next generation of supporters on the sacrifices so many made, but also the on-going impact war has had on this City and club.
