Jersey and Sponsors[edit]

Home jersey

In 2010 the Panthers jerseys were again made by ISC. They retained their predominantly black home jerseys from 2009, while revealing a new teal and white away strip. The new away strip was designed featuring performance technology and weighed less than half of the previous away design.[1]

Sanyo were again the major sponsor of the Panthers in 2010. Titan Warehousing Solutions replaced ABCOE Distributors as the sleeve sponsor.[2] HOSTPLUS secured the shorts sponsorship while Tony Ferguson retained the rights for the back of the jersey.

The Panthers once again participated in the heritage round, sporting a retro strip. This jersey featured a white V on a predominately brown background, paired with white shorts.

Fixtures[edit]

The Panthers again used CUA Stadium as their home ground in 2010, their home ground since they entered the competition in 1967.

Pre-season[edit]

The main squad returned to training on 5 November 2009 to start preparing for the 2010 season.[3] Players involved in the 2009 Four Nations and 2009 Pacific Cup returned to training later.
