FEATHERSTONE Rovers stage their 2013 home shirt launch in the clubhouse this evening.

The new shirt has been designed and manufactured by Italian company Macron who will be Featherstone’s official kit supplier for 2013 and 2014 after signing a club record sponsorship deal with Rovers.

The doors open tonight at 7pm.

The event starts at 7.30pm when last season’s highlights will be re-lived. Featherstone retained the Championship League Leaders Shield for a third successive season and reached the Challenge Cup fifth round with a memorable victory against Castleford Tigers.

Following the highlights and a performance by local artist Charley Sterling, the new leisurewear range will be launched live on a catwalk at 8.45pm.

The main unveiling of the new home shirt will take place at 9.15pm by members of the first team squad who will attend with the coaching staff following their training session.

The shirt and leisurewear will go on sale at 9.30pm. There are 13 shirt sizes.
