New look.

The Connacht Rugby squad returned to training at The Sportsground on Thursday, to begin their preseason training programme for the upcoming season of Guinness PRO14 and Heineken Champions Cup rugby.

Ahead of the  new season, Connacht have unveiled their 2019/20 home kit as well as a new logo design for the province.

The new logo strongly reflects the original provincial crest with evolutions of the core elements. The new logo sheds the rugby ball feature of old, providing much greater prominence and emphasis on the more traditional elements of the eagle and sword.

The wing tips of the eagle have been reworked and consolidated to represent each of the five counties of the province with the arm strengthened and holding the sword upright, denoting ambition. Some minor changes to the font have also been introduced.

The logo was unveiled at the launch of the 2019/20 Connacht home kit. The kit is manufactured by BLK Sport Ireland and includes their exclusive Exotek four way stretch fabric, clean cut collar, and fluro green detailing incorporated in the sleeve cuff and neck.

The new Connacht home jersey will be available for pre-sale from 12pm on Friday 5th of July.
