Leinster Rugby has today revealed the new adidas home kit for the 2020/21 season, available to pre-order now exclusively from Life Style Sports.
The jersey design has been inspired by the number that is assigned to Leinster Rugby players when they make their first appearance for the province.
That number stays with each player forever and represents their contribution to Leinster Rugby.
The fade from ‘night indigo’ into ‘glory blue’ on the jersey represents the proud tradition of producing players From The Ground Up.
The new home jersey is exclusively available to pre-order now from Life Style Sports.
“Every time you get to put on the Leinster Rugby jersey is special,” said Johnny Sexton on the launch of the new adidas home kit.
“When you get your first cap you get assigned a number; every player that’s played for Leinster has one. It’s represented in the barcode pattern that’s woven through the new jersey. You’ve written yourself into history when you get your first cap.
“Ultimately you’re representing the people that matter to you, the supporters, and everyone that’s associated with the province. It’s a big responsibility when you put on the jersey but it’s hugely exciting every time. We’re very lucky we’ve had some big days in it and huge successes – we’re making the jersey more special for the next generation coming through when they get to wear it.”
Kevin Quinn, Head of Commercial & Marketing at Leinster Rugby, said: “We are delighted to reveal Leinster Rugby’s new adidas Home jersey, exclusively available on pre-order today from Life Style Sports. The release of a new jersey is always an exciting time for supporters, especially with our return to action in just a few days against Munster.
“The unique design of our new adidas Home jersey is rooted in the individual numbers assigned to each player when they make their Leinster Rugby debut – it signifies their place and marks their legacy in the history of the club. A lot of thought, energy, research and creativity goes into these jersey designs. I’m sure our supporters will love what the team at adidas have created and I look forward to seeing the team line out in the new kit this weekend.”
Mark Stafford, CEO at Life Style Sports said: “As Leinster Rugby’s exclusive retail partner, we are delighted to see the return of rugby this weekend, and not only that but to be able to bring you the new Leinster Rugby Home jersey, which is available to pre-order now. We’re looking forward to seeing the kit make its first appearance this weekend at the Aviva in the club’s next interpro match. Which is something we know the fans will be equally excited about too!
“Our partnership with Leinster Rugby and the new kit from adidas marks the next chapter in sports retail. No longer just kept for match day, this jersey is designed to be worn with pride by supporters. This isn’t just a new jersey, it’s a new story, embedded with the history of the club and we are excited to bring this to supporters as exclusive retail partner of Leinster Rugby.”
