Exeter Chiefs and Samurai Sportswear have announced a new five-year deal that will see the Norfolk-based sportswear manufacturer continue to supply the Aviva Premiership club.

The partnership, which was first signed in 2010 before the Chiefs were promoted into English rugby’s top flight, claims to be the joint longest of its type in the Premiership and includes playing kit and off-field leisurewear as well as a retail range for supporters.

Welcoming the new deal, Exeter chief executive Tony Rowe OBE said: “As a club we’re very happy to be continuing our working relationship with Samurai, who have been with us ever since we broke into the Premiership and Europe and have joined in our success of recent years.

“Making sure we provide our players with the best kit the market can offer is important to ensure they can maximise their performance on the pitch and continue to help build the Exeter Chiefs brand off it.

“The last six years has been an incredible success story for the club and for Samurai and we will both continue to work hard to ensure the future is just as prosperous.”
