It’s a name synonymous with local sport to generations of Ipswich residents, and now Struddy’s is the proud supplier of on and off field apparel for the club. Both the football and the netball teams will be adorned in sportswear supplied by Struddy’s until at least 2023 thanks to a deal struck between the Jets and the proud local business.

The company started back in 1975 by Ross Strudwick, a former St George player, who also represented Queensland and his country in Rugby League. For many years Struddy’s has been the go-to for local sports clubs across Ipswich, and that proud tradition continues. A 100% Australian business, they have three locations in two states, and has worked with the club to design apparel that will sing on the footy field and netball court.

Ben Neale from Struddy’s said that the company is excited about being able to supply the pride of Ipswich with their on and off field apparel. Ben’s father even ran the Ipswich store for over 10 years. “Struddys is super excited to announce it is planting its feet firmly back in the city of Ipswich through partnering with the Ipswich Jets as their official apparel supplier,” Mr Neale said.

“Like the Jets, Struddy’s is proud of its Ipswich heritage. We first opened a retail outlet, back in the mid 1970’s in Ipswich Rung’s Garage on Brisbane Street. Struddy’s today manufacture locally in Logan City and offshore.

“Due to the support and contribution from the hardworking people in the Ipswich shire, the Ipswich Jets Rugby League Club remains a force in rugby league and an iconic club in the community. We too have built a reputation in the apparel industry as manufacturers of reliable, high quality, customized products at competitive prices. Struddys hold rugby league in its heart, and is privileged to employ over 50 staff including national and state sportsmen and women.”

“We love the fact that we are able to work with their graphic designer on everything the rugby league and netball teams wear on the field of play,” said Nicole McPhee, Commercial Manager from Ipswich Jets.

“This is another prime of example of how the Jets support local business, because we appreciate the support that local business gives the club, helping to get the teams out there, and we value every single one of our local sponsors!”
