Rugby League Cares has appointed Oxen as the charity’s official apparel supplier.

Oxen produced the kit and uniforms worn by all RL Cares staff, including the dedicated team of current and former players who deliver our hugely successful health and wellbeing programmes in rugby league communities.

The prestigious sports clothing brand are also creating a bespoke range of RL Cares-branded apparel that will be available to purchase by members of the public. The new range will be launched in June on the Oxen website.

And to celebrate the new partnership and their commitment to the charity and its work, Oxen have generously donated all the on- and off-bike kit for the riders taking on our toughest-ever fundraising challenge, le Tour de Rugby League Cares.

RL Cares Partnership Manager Nav Uppal said: “I would like to welcome Oxen as our official apparel supplier and am looking forward to growing our partnership with this highly-regarded brand.

“I am sure the new range of RL Cares-branded apparel will be well received by rugby league fans who are great supporters of the charity and its work.

Lee Jenkinson, Chief Executive of Oxen, said: “We are delighted to have secured our new partnership with Rugby League Cares which has huge potential for both Oxen and the charity.

“There is already a great synergy between our two brands, which are both respected and well established across rugby league communities, and we are looking forward to working with the charity.

“RL Cares does a fantastic job supporting people of all ages and backgrounds and we know how important it is that it raises the funds needed to do what it does so well.”
