The Kaiviti Silktails have officially announced Allure EPM as their new apparel supplier for the 2024 season. Club Executive Director Stephen Driscoll and Allure Production Manager James Breen announced the partnership at Allure’s Marrickville Headquarters in Sydney’s Inner West.

Already the clubs Corporate Wear Supplier for the past 4 seasons, the Silktails are no stranger to Allure’s capabilities in this space, and the clubs board had no hesitation in upgrading Allure’s deal, with Allure also having manufacturing capabilities in Fiji. This will see Allure supply the teams official playing kit for their inaugural season in the NSW Jersey Flegg Cup Competition that has been designed by the clubs new Major Sponsor – Fiji Airways.

“Our playing and off field kit for the 2024 season has been designed by the Fiji Airways Creative Design Team which is exciting in itself. Even more exciting is that James and the team at Allure EPM get to manufacture our home and away jersey that will take us into our inaugural season participating against 13 other NRL Clubs.” said Driscoll.

“This is just a wonderful reward for one of our most loyal and selfless sponsors that has been with us during the COVID-19 pandemic during our time based away from Fiji, and then our first season back at home last year.”

The Lautoka based club will wear 4 strips in season 2024 that will consist of a home and away jersey that will be launched in mid-February at the Fiji Airways headquarters in Nadi. The club will also wear a commemorative strip designed by Fiji Airways for the Annual Jacquie Shannon Memorial Bowl to be contested in August when they take on their NRL partner club the Sydney Roosters at Churchill Park, in honour of their late Football Manager who passed away in 2022.

The fourth strip will be a Retro Jersey to be worn on ‘Fiji Old Boys Day’ at the end of the season to honour our former Fiji Rugby League pioneers and legends. Driscoll is particularly excited about what Allure will bring for the Retro design and the Retro merchandise that will be sold alongside it.

“James and Allure really understand this market and they have come up with a range of retro tee’s that will be sold at their Marrickville warehouse and at famous Sydney suburban grounds to honour the Fijian legends that played for those clubs. That along with our Retail Sales outlets to be announced that will see Silktails gear sold in Fiji, Queensland and NSW which is just so exciting for everyone involved here.”

The Kaiviti Silktails will wear its Fiji Airways designed Allure EPM manufactured Jersey for the first time when they play the curtain raiser to the historic Fiji NRL trial being played at Churchill Park between the Melbourne Storm and the Newcastle Knights on Feb 24.
