NRL clubs to become Marvel heroes in Rd 21
Marvel Super Heroes and the heroes of the NRL interlink in Round 21 with five teams wearing an exclusive range of Marvel Super Hero themed jerseys by ISC. The ISC Marvel Super Hero jerseys will launch on 15th July and will be available for fans to purchase from club stores, nrlshop.com, ISC website and Rebel Sport.
This exciting collaboration was borne of a desire to create variety and innovation for Marvel and sports fans alike.
We’ll see the Marvel Super Hero and NRL Sporting shared attributes of Strength, Leadership, Instinct, Loyalty and Strategy align as the Roosters don Captain America jerseys, Dragons with Iron Man, Raiders as The Hulk, Cowboys with Thor and the Sea Eagles with Wolverine.
The Roosters’ Anthony Minichiello, Dragons’ Gareth Widdop, Raiders’ Paul Vaughan, Cowboys’ Ashton Sims and Sea Eagles’ Kieran Foran have joined forces to promote the Round with a series of vignettes that reveal how the Rugby League stars channel Marvel Super Hero strengths and attributes come game day.
ISC CEO, Brett Corrick, says “Partnering with Marvel and adopting its universally recognised characters for this unique program demonstrates, once again, ISC’s commitment to innovation in licensed sports apparel. We are delighted with the outcome and look forward to developing this partnership.”
The games played in early August, coined the Marvel Super Hero Round, will kick off on Friday, 1 August. On Saturday, 2 August, the Roosters play the Dragons where Captain America meets Iron Man.
This unique series of games will also feature a number of marvellous game day events, including character appearances, Marvel activities and half time entertainment.
The Walt Disney Company Australia Chief Marketing Office, Kylie Watson-Wheeler, says Marvel Super Heroes are some of the most loved and recognisable icons in the world like the players and clubs of the NRL in Australia. This program is such an exciting, innovative collaboration aligning Marvel character attributes with iconic NRL clubs and players.
