Canterbury, the official kit partner to Irish Rugby, has revealed the new Ireland Rugby Home and Alternate jerseys that will be worn throughout the 2021/22 season. The newly designed jersey will be first seen in competitive action this autumn.
The design of this year‘s kit is inspired by elements found across the island of Ireland, with freeflowing graphics that mimic the natural environment and represent the energy of a strong united team. The home jersey pairs classic green with an eye-catching vector pattern on the sleeves and sides, while the alternate jersey is defined by an invigorating purple and jet black colourway and striking pattern.
The Test jersey is made from part recycled fabric, while the main body of the pro jersey is made from 100% recycled polyester. It also features Canterbury’s strongest ever neckline, which was first featured on The British and Irish Lion’s Test jersey this summer. The jerseys will be available in Test (as worn by the players), as well as Pro and Classic Replica fits across men’s, women’s and junior ranges.
Ireland Rugby Player and Canterbury Ambassador, Robbie Henshaw, said; “Canterbury has again produced a kit that is incredibly comfortable, functional and stylish. I am really looking forward to wearing the jersey in front of thousands of fans at Aviva Stadium later this year.”
Despite the global pandemic, Canterbury’s support for Men’s, Women’s and youth rugby has been unwavering. This new kit was designed and developed in consultation with the Ireland’s Women’s team, with their feedback incorporated into the design and fit.
With Canterbury’s teamwear range, grassroots clubs around the country can run out onto the field wearing similar kit to the elite stars of the game, using the same technology and neckline. This can be done through the customisable and made-to-order teamwear business – helping your club to perform at your best on the pitch. Visit Canterbury.com to find out more.
