In 1823, William Webb Ellis takes the ball by hand to the opponent’s End Zone during a soccer match that became famous since then. More than 30 years later, in 1859, this founding event gave birth to Wellington and its Black Wellis University, in a country that became a key part of the rugby world: New-Zealand.
In this Southern Hemisphere University rugby is played in the purest of traditions: fair-play, humbleness, commitment, respect and valour lay at the heart of this sport. Proud of its heritage, the brand’s products reflect its commitment to simplicity, pride, tradition and quality, as part of its style.
Beyond the product, Black Wellis features its attachment to respect, team spirit and tradition.
