“The home strip being blue was a loud message we heard and with this in mind we are excited to have Treaty wear blue at home for the 2024 season.”
Treaty United have announced that the club’s Senior and Carelon Academy sides will wear a blue home strip for the 2024 season.
The move sees the club line out in the colour most associated with the long, storied history of Senior football in Limerick.
The origins of Limerick Senior football saw sides line out in red-and-white striped jerseys in 1937, something which Treaty United have paid homage to in the club’s first four seasons of football.
However, a change to blue jerseys from August 1943 onwards has seen the colour become closely linked with Senior football in Limerick, and the club have acted on the wishes of supporters by changing the home kit colours going forward.
“One of the things that we have said, and was most important to us coming in, was that we wanted to give local fans a voice. The home strip being blue was a loud message we heard and with this in mind we are excited to have Treaty wear blue at home for the 2024 season.”CEO Ciara McCormack
This change in home kit colours marks the start of an exciting countdown to the 2024 SSE Airtricity Men’s First Division season, which kicks off on Friday, February 16th when the Shannonsiders take on Cobh Ramblers at 7:45PM in the Markets Field.
The club have teased supporters to keep their eyes on their social channels as they prepare to launch the 2024 O’Neill’s home kit, which Treaty United Senior Men’s Manager Tommy Barrett has described as the “best designed Limerick Senior soccer kits that I have seen”.
There is also set to be an announcement on who will be the club’s new Senior Men’s captain. The new home kit will be previewed at the 2024 season launch of SSE Airtricity League of Ireland which takes place on Wednesday, February 7th.
