York RLFC Knights, formerly known as York City Knights RLFC, are an English professional rugby league club based in York. In 2018, the club succeeded in winning all but two of their matches to be crowned league champions, earning promotion to the Championship where they continue to play today.

With the club having used FORZA equipment previously, and with the introduction of Net World Sports' new FORZA rugby range which included some rugby league specific products, the decision to form a partnership was an easy one for both parties.

Net World Sports supplied the club with equipment including FORZA Tackle Bags, Tackle Shields, Kicking Tees, Rugby Balls, Resistance Bands, Rugby Passing Nets and much more. The Knights were able to provide Net World Sports with invaluable feedback that was used for product development to ensure our range is the best possible quality.

"The equipment we've used has all been great quality and very durable, which is essential for the players and coaches... The equipment is used regularly in training sessions and will help our players improve their skills and overall performance" Joe Smith, Media & Marketing Manager at York RLFC Knights

After using and being impressed with our FORZA Rugby Balls, York RLFC Knights enquired about having dual-branded rugby balls that featured their branding and colourway. The Net World Sports team were able to work with the club to design and manufacture a large volume of customised rugby balls, of which the team were very pleased with.
