Munster Rugby Release Stunning New European & Alternate Kits
The new adidas Munster Rugby European and Alternate kits were today unveiled completing the province’s playing range for the 2018/19 campaign.
The new European jersey will be worn for the next two seasons and takes design inspiration from the club’s fortress, Thomond Park, with the province celebrating the 10-year anniversary of the stadium’s redevelopment this year.
The vivid red adidas jersey has a hint of navy and gold detail throughout, inspired by the mix of vibrant and recognisable seat colours in the stands of Thomond Park. Supporters have experienced sublime highs and witnessed epic battles at the venue for many years. The famous Munster Rugby passion is synonymous with the venue and the new European jersey pays tribute to the battle ground that is Thomond Park.
Inspiration for the new adidas Alternate jersey, which resembles the training kit, was taken from the province’s scenic Cliffs of Moher. Detail on the front of the jersey symbolises the layered foundations of the Cliffs and the colour reflects the copper ore mined in Munster over 400 years ago – An iconic jersey, for an iconic province.
The Home jersey remains the same for the 2018/19 season and will continue to be worn by the Munster senior men’s team, senior women’s team and the province’s underage girls and boys sides. The all-red kit draws inspiration from the province’s rich heritage and shares the same Latin motto; “forte fideli nihil difficil” or “to the brave and faithful nothing is impossible,” that once decorated the ancient battle shield of one of Munster’s greatest families, the McCarthy clan.
Munster Rugby Head of Commercial and Marketing, Doug Howlett, said:
“We are delighted with our new adidas training and playing range and I’m sure our supporters will be just as excited as we are with the new kit.
Our complete 2018/19 range will be available for supporters Exclusively at Life Style Sports from tomorrow and with an increased number of sizes available, we are delighted to be catering for as many Munster fans as possible.”
