Hull FC will celebrate the launch of a new club shop at St Stephen’s Shopping Centre this weekend by unveiling the new 2019 alternative jersey!
The Black & Whites are opening a new store in one of the region’s premier shopping centres ahead of the busy winter shopping period.
The new look shop, which will be home to Hull FC until at least the new year, will open for the first time on Sunday morning at 10am, when fans will be able to see and buy the new 2019 alternative shirt for the very first time.
Club captain Danny Houghton, Josh Bowden and Danny Washbrook will also be in attendance to launch the shirt, as well as giving fans the chance to get pictures and autographs, whilst Washbrook’s testimonial calendar will also be on sale in store.
The new 2019 alternative training range will also be available for the first time on Sunday morning.
Taking over the store previously accommodated by Domo, opposite Tesco, the new retail store will stock the club’s new kits in all sizes, as well as the training and off-field ranges, fashion essentials, accessories and Christmas gifts.
The store will also be Hull’s destination for NRL shirts and training gear, as well as New Zealand and Tonga test jerseys.
