About Stag Sports
THE HISTORY AND WHERE WE ARE NOW
We have been based at our West Yorkshire factory for over 40 years! Originally formed to supply bags and holdalls to world renowned brands such as Coca Cola, British airways etc. The business evolved and went into the Rugby League market. Stag even supplied the match kit that caught the very first ball of a Super League when the Paris played Sheffield in the inaugural Super League match in 1996. Since then grassroots sport has thrived and clubs up and down the country want the same professional team sport look. This is a market where we feel we can comfortably control and supply a high level of quality and equally important service to all our clubs.
Over the past 5 years we have invested in two new state of the art digital printers. This has created 10 times the print capacity and power that our old machines gave us! Over a dozen sewing machines have been updated for added quality and speed – introducing our older members of staff to touch screen technology even on sewing machines! Our next investment will be a new heat press to go along side our existing two. This new Calendar press operates as a conveyor belt and presses up to 5 garments per minute!
Almost all our products are designed and manufactured in our factory. This give us complete control of all our lead times. When you contact us you will reach an experienced member of our team based in the factory that will help you. Our team of designers are on hand to create the look and feel you want. We will guide you through everything you need to know! You will not meet a more friendly team!
