Quidditch Premier League Announces Team Partners For 2018 Season

The Quidditch Premier League is excited to announce our partners for the 2018 season. All of these brands offer exciting products, opportunities, and innovations to players and fans alike, and, most importantly, fit our vision for a more inclusive world.

Primary partners will be featured on the front of team kits this season, while secondary partners will be featured on the sleeve of team kits this season. Team kits will go live for sale in the very near future, so you’ll see these partners featured on those shortly!

Please note that this is not an exhaustive list, as partners may still be added in the near future.

Some 40 years ago, Classic Miniatures was formed to make better quality awards, and in association with a dynamic and innovative French company, they soon jointly became one of the largest suppliers of medals and metal figurines in Europe. Between them they made Formula 1 Racing trophies, the Commonwealth Games medals, various prestigious awards, plus medals for major sporting and commemorative events in many countries. We are excited to have Classic Miniatures as the official medal suppliers for the 2018 Quidditch Premier League season, for which they’ll be creating some gorgeous custom awards.

Southwest Broadside

Primary Partner: Truffleshuffle

A longstanding love affair with all things 80’s and a chance encounter with a Dukes of Hazzard T-Shirt were responsible for the start of all things TruffleShuffle. After bringing said T-Shirt back from the US of A, their founder proudly wore it to the pub and after getting tonnes of comments from his fellow revellers, came up with the idea for a site which was dedicated to all things retro. They decided to name ourselves after the famous dance from another 80’s classic, The Goonies, and 11 years and many, many T-Shirts (not to mention all the funky gifts, accessories and other retro bits and bobs they offer too!) later, they’ve never looked back. Run by a clutch of 80’s kids (and a couple of 60’s and 70’s kids!) they absolutely love what they do and they hope you do too.
