Canterbury of New Zealand has released the home and away kits that the Ireland men’s and women’s national rugby teams will wear during their 2021/22 season.
Both kits will make their debut when the senior Irish rugby teams play in a series of six international fixtures during the month of November.
According to the Irish Rugby Football Union:
The design of this year‘s kit is inspired by elements found across the island of Ireland. The sharp modern vector shapes combine with free flowing 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.
Sean Kavanagh, Global Director of Sports Marketing and Sponsorship at Canterbury of New Zealand, commented: “This is the eighth year of our partnership with the IRFU and we’re delighted to continue and further our support of Irish Rugby. There is no doubt that the past few months has been a tough period for players and fans alike, but we look forward to seeing both the men and women’s side competing in the new kit and the supporters back in stadiums cheering them on in the near future.
Our role as official kit partner to the IRFU is to provide the team with a bespoke kit, designed to meet the needs of the players while also providing fans with a stylish, comfortable and distinct range of replica wear allowing them to show their support.”
