Reigning Investec Super Rugby Champions Chiefs have unveiled their 2013 adidas home and away jerseys. The black and yellow home kit is now available at World Rugby Shop.
According to the Hamilton, New Zealand-based team’s website: The new adidas Chiefs’ jersey has provincial pride incorporated into the latest design, carrying the names of the provincial unions that are part of the Chiefs region inside the collar.
The words Counties Manukau, Waikato, Thames Valley, King Country and Bay of Plenty are side by side on the collar with the team’s proud koru design – which also featured on their 2012 tournament-winning jersey now debossed into the chest of the jersey.
“The teams were keen to add the names of their provincial unions and catchment areas to the jerseys as a tribute to their roots, and to their support base,” says AJ Moriarty, adidas Pacific Merchandise Manager – Rugby.
