The Gold Coast SUNS have demonstrated their support for local businesses by partnering with Gold Coast-based, high-performance sports apparel company BLK Sport through a four-year partnership.

BLK (Beyond Limits Known) will provide the GC SUNS with their on-field and training kit, with the Gold Coast organisation now the largest apparel supplier within the AFL ahead of the 2015 season. The new BLK kit is now available for pre-order through the SUNS Shop.

Gold Coast SUNS CEO, Andrew Travis, said the partnership with BLK made sense from both a commercial and performance viewpoint.

“We are ecstatic to have partnered with a Gold Coast-based company like BLK, which has made extraordinary inroads by linking with several AFL clubs over the past few years,” Travis said.

“As a club, we are looking to change gears next year and really take the next step, and we want to work with commercial partners who are of the same mindset.

“BLK is a worldwide brand and one which we are very proud to be associated with.

“We have high expectations of our playing group next season and want to give them every advantage we can.”

WRS Group CEO, Tyron Brant, said the team at BLK Sport was looking forward to working with one of the code’s most exciting teams and providing it with a top-shelf range of cutting edge, high-performance apparel to wear both on and off the field.

“Whilst BLK is now a significant player across the international sports apparel market with teams and partnerships in the USA, South Africa, England, France and Japan to name just a few, our global headquarters are right here on the Gold Coast and we wanted to ensure that those teams representing our city in national competitions do so wearing ranges specifically designed for them, right here on the Gold Coast,” Brant said.

“In 2015, BLK will supply on- and off-field apparel ranges to more teams in the AFL than any other brand, and we have certainly ensured that our partners share our values and vision. As a brand, we are very excited by both the short- and long-term prospects of the Gold Coast SUNS and look forward to working with CEO Andrew Travis and his team as they strive to achieve their on- and off-field goals.”
