2022 Magic Child Shirt
In a Rugby League first, the kit is produced with materials yarned from 70% recycled plastic with technology designed in partnership with our official kit providers O’Neills.
Each shirt produced equates to 17-27 recycled plastic bottles depending on size, and is at the maximum threshold of 70% recyclable material in order to allow shirt printing on the design.
If the shirt proves a success with supporters and players it will provide the blueprint for all future kit designs.
Furthermore, a tree will be planted in the UK for every shirt purchased.
The limited-edition kit will be worn by the Wire on Sunday 10 July at Magic Weekend when we face Catalans Dragons at St James’ Park, Newcastle.
The recycled shirt is the centrepiece for the club’s sustainability strategy as we strive to do more to be more environmentally friendly.
