For a limited time you can order Schutt American Football equipment via the NZAFF online shop at a subsidised cost which removes most of the shipping and GST / import costs. This gear will be airfreighted into New Zealand so should be landed within 3-4 weeks of full payment being made. The stated costs for selected Schutt gear include all costs to get delivered to the individual purchasers door in New Zealand.
We appreciate that given timeframes this will not be suitable for Clubs to apply for Grant Funding for this season, but we believe this could help more individual players to purchase their own equipment and help take pressure of Club stocks. Regions and Clubs are also more than welcome to place orders for their own use.
Should there prove to be interest in this initiative, in the future we can consider longer lead times to allow for grant funding applications and also bulk orders, potentially sea freighted, to further reduce costs.
Orders can be placed on the NZAFF Shopify site here.
