Wigan Warriors’ nightmare before Christmas seemingly over

Last week Wigan Warriors tweeted news that their UK distributor, Elite Sports, have gone into administration.

The Warriors kit is produced by Hummel but supplied by the distributor Elite Sports and with the company going into administration, they’ve had their stock and players training clothing seized at port.

In a statement on twitter the club explained the situation that could lead to Christmas shortages.

“Elite Sports is a UK distributor of the Hummel brand. Last week, Elite Sports entered into administration.

“A large portion of our retail stock and players training clothing has been retained at the port in the UK until administrators navigate a way forward.

“We are working around the clock to attempt to get stock in our store before Christmas but this is very much out of our control at this stage.

“We will communicate this to our fans once we have a clear way forward.

“We ask that you remain calm and respectful to our retail staff at this difficult time.”

However, their nightmare before Christmas could now be over.

The club took to Twitter to make this statement:

“We are pleased to announce that 2023 replica home and away kits are back in stock in-store and online.

“We would like to thank our supporters for your patience during this challenging time.”

Thus, things look to have been resolved by the Warriors.
