Widnes Vikings have revealed their brand new unique black third kit for the 2020 Betfred Championship season.

The all-black design – named the ‘Blackout’ shirt – is the first of its kind in rugby league and pays tribute to the town’s history.

The club launched the shirt with a video showing Widnes as a town to be proud of because of its industrial roots.

The video also incorporates some of the greatest players in the sport’s past that have been born and bred in the town and developed by the club, with the likes of Vince Karalius, Frank Myler and Dougie Laughton going on to gain representative honours.
