Erreà will be the new technical sponsor of Hartlepool for the 2022/2023 and 2023/2024 seasons.

The team from the port town in County Durham, which overlooks the North Sea, plays in Football League Two, the fourth tier of English football.

The team, which plays its home matches at Victoria Park, reached the Football League Trophy semi-finals in the 2021-2022 season as a newly promoted team.

Fabrizio Taddei, Head of Global Partnerships, added: "It is with great pleasure that we welcome Hartlepool United to the Erreà family. Although our history is not as long as Hartlepool's, we are both family-owned and work hard to build success. As such, we see this as a true partnership and look forward to working closely with everyone within the club over the coming seasons, and creating not only some great match shirts, but also distinctive and stylish ranges that we hope will be loved by players and fans alike." 

Stephen Hobin, Chief Operating Officer, said: "I am really excited to announce this partnership which I am sure will be very well received by our supporters and players. It was extremely important to get this deal and it has been in the works for several months. One of the key things for me in this deal was to create wonderful and exciting kits and associated ranges that were truly unique and tailored to this football club."

This will be followed by the official launch of the match jerseys in July
