Munster unveil new home jersey for 2017/18 season

Munster have revealed their new home jersey for the upcoming season and it’s quite tasty.

The new, all red, kit, is influenced by the province’s heritage. It has the same motto which was engraved on the battle shield of the McCarthy Clan “forte fideli nihil difficil or to the brave and faithful nothing is impossible

In the finer detail of the jersey is an antler tapestry representing the Munster stag, which is also said to embody bravery and determination. The crest has a copper trim to express the gathering of strength from home soil and a history of copper mines which have been forgotten.

The training range design is based off aerial views of the province and the prominence of feeder towns. The new training range is available to purchase from today.

Similar to their alternate kit launch, Munster allowed fans the chance to unveil the jersey in a unique way online, working alongside Adidas’ under the hashatag #NextIsEverything.

Marketing director of LifeStyle Sports Debbie Byrne had this to say on the new kit

The 2017/18 Munster Rugby home and training ranges have that rare balance of classic style and modern flare that are rooted in the history of the team, the land and its people.

 “This launch is both traditional and innovative with the continued partnership with Munster’s most creative supporters once again being enlisted to create their own unique and simultaneous unveilings.”

Enda Lynch who is Munster Rugby’s head of Commercial and marketing spoke highly of the kit saying

As we return to an all-red home kit, adidas have once again led the way in design and innovation in marking the province’s heritage through the inclusion of the club’s motto and nod to the stag, while also referencing our community ties with the map feature across the training range.”

You can pre-order the jersey exclusively on Lifestyle Sports from today and the jerseys will be in store from next week, the 24th of July. Men’s replica jerseys will begin at €80, kids at €65 – €75, and test, as worn by the players will begin at €100. Munster’s new training range will begin from €35.
