The in-form Republic of Ireland men’s national football team will give the 2014/15 Umbro away kit its first tastes of match action during meetings with Scotland and the USA on November 14th and 18th respectively.
Umbro have issued customized versions of the new Boys in Green alternate shirt for the matches. The jersey for the much-anticipated clash with neighbors Scotland features a print under the Football Association of Ireland (FAI) crest with the flag of both nations and the date and venue of the game – “14-11-2014 PARKHEAD”. Since the meeting is a UEFA EURO 2016 qualifier the official symbol of the competition appears on the kit’s right sleeve via a ironed on patch. The left sleeve has a UEFA Respect anti-racism patch applied.
The Republic of Ireland shirt for the USA match doesn’t have any UEFA sleeve patches since it is an international friendly. Irish and American flags appear under the FAI crest along with the text “18-11-2014 AVIVA STADIUM”.
The 14/15 Republic of Ireland Umbro home and away kits are now on sale at JD Sports. World Soccer Shop, Subside Sports, UK Soccer Shop and Kitbag are expected to carry them in the lead up to Christmas 2014.
