The material was first used in football as part of PlayerLayer’s partnership with Forest Green Rovers, which is renowned for being the world’s greenest football club. The Bears are the first to use the material in cricket as part of the Club’s ambitions to be the most sustainable cricket club.
Alex Perkins, Head of Commercial at Warwickshire CCC, said: “PlayerLayer’s approach to developing high-quality sustainable sportswear fits with our objectives as a Club. We are delighted that we have been able to develop our partnership and to become the first cricket club to wear this new bamboo-mix material.
“We’ve been working collaboratively over the winter to develop the material to fit our traditional yellow and navy colours to create a design which we think our Members and supporters will love.
Warwickshire CCC, like us, believe that sport can drive change. It is a privilege to work with a club that is as ambitious about its commitment to climate change as we are. We have a long way to go on the journey and look forward to the ride.
