It has been an exceptionally difficult time and we are eternally grateful to everyone for their support throughout.
“Despite the inevitable financial downturn caused by the global pandemic, we are fortunate not only to be welcoming the continuing support of existing sponsors, but also a number of new sponsors to the Llanelli RFC family.
“It is a source of great pride that we’ve been able to secure a revenue increase of over 300% on last season’s kit, thanks to the support of the local business community.”
The kit features the traditional scarlet colour jersey with white shorts. Llanelli will wear the new kit on Saturday 11thDecember, when they welcome Cardiff to Parc y Scarlets, as the Indigo Group Premiership returns to action.
