July 22, 20161 min read
Showcased on Ireland’s 2016 summer tour to South Africa and officially launched today, the new Irish Rugby jersey is the most innovative and technically advanced rugby jersey ever worn by an Irish rugby team. Available in traditional Irish green, featuring impeccable detail and contemporary touches, the new jersey tasted success when Ireland scored an historic win over South Africa during the summer tour.
With a commitment to continuous improvement, Canterbury’s innovation team, The Canterbury Lab, has worked closely with members of the Irish rugby team and management to ensure luck plays no part when it comes to the equipment used by the team.
With the Irish Rugby Team meticulous in their pre-game preparations, players on the pitch will benefit from a range of innovations, including reduced fabrication weight, minimising moisture absorption for Canterbury’s most lightweight kit ever. Developed through position-specific 3D body-mapping, the new jersey offers a super enhanced fit catering for the varied physiques of the modern rugby player. Adaptive fabrication with dynamic heat management properties ensures a constant temperature is maintained in any climate and Canterbury’s toughest 360° loop bound neckline with enhanced elasticity and shape retention has been designed to withstand the toughest of challenges.
The jersey launch signifies the start of Canterbury’s Not Luck. Only Commitment. campaign which brings to life the Irish Rugby Team’s Commitment to the game as they leave nothing to chance in their pursuit of glory.
Irish rugby fans can buy the Pro jersey - which retains the look of the jersey that will be worn by the team - online from Rugbystuff.com and instore at First XV from today.
