The Scottish Rugby and Macron unveiled the 2021/22 Scotland Rugby Kits. Including the latest Scotland Home and Away Rugby Shirts, Shorts and Socks, as well as the latest off-field training and leisurewear.
As tradition dictates, the new 21/22 Scotland Home Shirt is navy blue, and this year it also features light blue and purple detailing, colours that reference the Scottish Saltire and the thistle, Scotland's national flower.
The shirt has a round crew neck collar. The sleeves are trimmed with the same colour combination. The Macron Hero logo is embroidered in white on the right breast, with the Scottish Rugby thistle on the left. A Saltire is also positioned just underneath the collar on the back. On the lower back of the shirt a striking repeated tonal embossed thistle motif design features.
Peter Vardy is now Scottish Rugby's Principal Partner and features across the chest of the new Scottish Rugby Shirts. Peter Vardy has signed a new four-year deal that sees them replace BT, who now feature across the shoulders of the shirts.
The home shorts are white with navy blue stitching and a small purple panel. The socks are predominantly navy blue with purple tops trimmed with a slim blue hoop.
The Alternate strip is white and also features a crew neck collar and sleeve cuffs with blue and purple detailing. The Macron Hero logo and the Scottish Rugby thistle are embroidered in navy blue on the chest. The design follows the lead of the Home kit, with the embossed thistle motif appearing on the lower part of the back of the jersey. The shorts are navy blue with a small purple panel, while the socks are white with two slim hoops in blue and purple at the top.
In line with Scottish Rugby’s commitment to sustainability, all rugby shirts and shorts are made from Eco-Armevo a 100% polyester fabric manufactured from recycled plastic bottles and meet the Global Recycled Standard Certification.
The men’s range of Scotland shirts includes the Authentic Match Bodyfit shirt, Polyester Replica Shirts as well as cotton long sleeve and short sleeve classic versions which feature smaller sponsors logos. In women's, we also stock replicas in both cotton or polyester. For kids, we have Replica Shirts in home and away as well as infant-sized shirts for even the youngest of Scotland fans.
The new men’s kits will be pressed into action for the first time in the Autumn Nations Series as Scotland host Tonga, Australia, South Africa and Japan at BT Murrayfield.
Scottish Rugby’s Head of Group Marketing & Commercial, Toni Blackhurst, said: “Once again Macron has created attractive and innovative designs for our National Teams’ match kits. With our increasing commitment to sustainability, it is great to see the incorporation of eco-friendly fabrics in both the bodyfit match kits as well as the replica shirts for fans. Our working relationship with Macron continues to go from strength to strength and was galvanised during the unsettling times created by the pandemic. We thank them for their continued support and look forward to seeing our players and fans wearing the new kits throughout the season ahead.”
Macron's Senior Sports Marketing Manager, Ross Cook, said: “It’s such an exciting time to be finally releasing the new Scotland kit. Our designers have worked hand-in-hand with Scottish Rugby and the official Scottish Rugby store, taking on board all aspects of feedback, to create what we believe is an exciting range and designs that both the fans and players will see as something special.
“As a passionate Scottish rugby fan, it’s nice to see the return of some heritage colours, bringing back the iconic thistle purple along with some touches of saltire blue.
“I can’t wait to see the team striding out the tunnel at BT Murrayfield, during the up and coming Autumn Nations Series where we hope players on the pitch and the fans in the stadium will wear this collection with passion and pride.”
Scotland International Jamie Ritchie said: “As a squad, we can’t wait to get playing rugby in front of the Scotland fans during the Autumn Nations Series. As ever Macron have knocked it out of the park. The new kits look and feel great and I am sure they will also be popular with our supporters.”
Scotland International Lisa Thomson added: “We all take a huge amount of pride each time we represent our country and the new kits for this season look amazing. I’m impressed with the use of recycled materials by Macron and the attention to detail in the design is really good.”
This year's training shirts are also proving to be a talking point with a bold navy and neon green version as well a predominantly blue shirt with a purple, green and navy stripe design.
