The betting firm will have their logo on PNE’s first-team strips and adult replica shirts.

Junior replica shirts and non-first-team kits will carry Rainbow House – North End’s official charity partner – on the front, while the Carers Trust logo will be on the back.

This season’s kits are again being manufactured by Nike, Preston having agreed a new three-year deal with the sportswear company.

Nike will be opening a new club shop in the Sir Tom Finney Stand, next to the ticket office, on July 21. Adult replica kits will go on sale that day, with a release day for the junior kit set to be confirmed shortly.

The home kit is the traditional white shirts, navy blue shorts and white socks, with the away strip navy blue shirts with a white sash, white shorts and blue socks.

A yellow third kit will be released in due course, while the first-choice goalkeeping kit will be all green and the keeper’s change kit all black.

North End chief executive John Kay said: “We are delighted to launch the new Nike kit which will be available at our brand new club store at Deepdale.
