Connacht Rugby, in partnership with BLK Sport, have unveiled their new home kit for the 2017/18 season.
The new home jersey and range is now available in Connacht Rugby’s main sponsor and official retail partner, Intersport Elverys, and online from www.Elverys.ie
The BLK product range has been developed to fulfil the needs of the modern athlete and supporter, from technical training, match-day equipment, and apparel to a superior lifestyle and supporter range. The emphasis is on design excellence, performance, durability, and innovation.
BLK, in its fifth year as Connacht Rugby’s official kit partner, worked closely with Connacht management on the new design to develop an all-green home kit. The new Connacht home jersey is a strong blend of the traditional Connacht green with energetic green piping and cover stitching to bring a modern twist. With a return to an entirely green jersey, the feature of unique shoulder detail and powerfully solid chest are amplified using a unique silicon gel logo application.
Connacht Rugby head of commercial and marketing, Brian Mahony, said: “As we enter an exciting new era at the province, we feel that our new all-green kit represents our storied past and bright future. The new design will ensure that our players stand out on the pitch and we look forward to seeing our supporters create a sea of green at the Sportsground and away venues throughout next season.
“The Stronger In Green concept reflects our inclusive community and conveys our belief that we are stronger together. The province is much more than just the 15 players on the pitch, we represent our five counties, our 27 clubs, and our supporters in Connacht and beyond.”
