Saints Kit Supplier 2018/19?

Recommended Posts

BLK seem to have disappeared.  If you try to go to their website (blksport.co.uk) it now takes you to the parent company in Australia whilst Saints page just comes up with an error message.  Can't find anything online to clear up what is going on apart from mentions of older/historic insolvency issues.

RU Active/Sport have lost the rights to distribute the BLK brand in the UK.

is there a new distributor or are BLK doing it themselves? They did have the distribution rights for America as well.

I couldn't tell you. However, on the basis of filings with Companies House, this has been on the cards for some time. BLK Sport Holdings were to officially be dissolved today, after serving two months notice to do so.

They submitted a confirmation statement since then, that allows them to continue trading?

The last filing on there for BLK Sport Holding is the 18th December of the notice to dissolve the company. 

BLK Sport UK (in liquidation) filed a confirmation back in 2017.

Looks like everything has been moved from the current BLK Sport Holding to the sister company, RU Active.

BLK Sport UK (08249885) ceased in December 2018.

BLK Sport Holdings Ltd (10573854) started in January 2019, and are still listed as active.

Same company address and directors.

The newest one had a filing that said they'd be shut down on Feb 18th, but they've filed accounts since then that maybe rule that out, I don't know how these things work though.

What is the deal with the kit? Went online to buy something, but link doesn't work and while there is one in this thread, it's not updated on official site. 

Are they effectively done as our suplier? Nothing official?

Hope Saints have enough to see them through to end of season otherwise they will have to go to Markies & get blue t shirts.
