Sneak preview: The new Kerry Ladies football jersey is a smasher

The minors will wear the kit for the first time against Cork today.

THE KERRY LADIES footballers have sealed a lucrative three-year kit deal with McKeever Sports. 

The Kingdom’s stars are following the lead of Cork and Tipperary, sporting McKeever kit on the pitch and adidas leisurewear off it.

Kerry’s minors will sport the new jersey today, when they take on Cork at the home of Dr. Crokes in Killarney in the Munster championship at 1pm.

The kit is manufactured by Armagh-based McKeever sports and only available via parent company TheGAAStore.com. 

The new deal, described as a “significant” arrangement, is understood to be the biggest in the history of Kerry ladies football.

The Kerry link-up represents another big addition to TheGAAStore stable, who have Cork, Tipperary, Armagh and now the Kingdom on board.

McKeever sports worked exclusively with Cork last year but several other counties currently under contract with other kit manufacturers are supplied with adidas leisurewear by TheGAAStore.

Last year, Cork’s ladies footballers signed a three-year deal with McKeever sports, worth an estimated €60,000.

The Rebelettes went on to collect an 11th TG4 All-Ireland senior title in 12 seasons, and they’ll appear in next Sunday’s Lidl National League Division 1 final against Donegal, aiming for a fifth successive crown.

Earlier this year, McKeever sports also became the exclusive leisurewear and training wear supplier to Dublin senior club football powerhouse St Vincent’s.

Diarmuid Connolly’s club now supply adidas leisurewear at all levels for players, with the gear also available to supporters.
