NRL bid places fine gear online
THE CQ NRL Bid is now selling its official merchandise in Gladstone and via the internet.
After months of planning, culminating in the arrival of new stock, supporters of the CQ NRL Bid are now able to go online to purchase official merchandise, including the latest batch of eye-catching polo shirts. The merchandising range also comprises caps and T-shirts, with orders being taken for Christmas.
Until recently, official merchandise could be purchased only from Rockhampton store Sports Central, at 104 East Street in the city’s CBD; however, the CQ NRL Bid now also has a retail presence in Gladstone thanks to Sportspower, at Shop 5, 45 Dawson Highway, in West Gladstone.
“Gladstone is a fast-growing provincial city that has a very important role to play in the CQ NRL Bid, so it was only natural to expand to the Harbour City in terms of having that retail presence,” said CQ NRL Bid project co-ordinator Jason Costigan, who was joined by fellow Bid Team member Jason Foss and ambassador Alyssa Shaw at CQ Bid Leagues Club at the weekend launch of the online supporters shop.
“In the new year, we’re also expecting to have our merchandise on sale in retail outlets in both Mackay and Bundaberg, as well as some of our hinterland centres, such as Emerald, Biloela and Longreach,” he said.
“But the bottom line is now, even if you can’t get into one of the shops selling our products, you can go into cyberspace, visit our website and make a purchase. Given recent developments in relation to the CQ NRL Bid securing its very own licensed club, the people of CQ are becoming more and more excited about our quest for an NRL side.”
The new polo shirts, which come in various sizes, have a recommended retail price of $45, with the T-shirts priced at $20 and caps at $25. For more information, please visit www.cqnrlbid.com.au
