To celebrate the launch of the new 2015/2016 Munster home and alternate kits, adidas, official kit supplier to Munster Rugby, rewarded 23 lucky fans by designing specially embroidered jerseys which were then worn by the players at last Friday’s friendly game versus London Irish. Each player’s jersey bore the family crest of the fan on the sleeve to showcase the deep rooted connection Munster fans and their families have with the club and thank them for their unwavering support.
The competition was run through Munster’s official retail partner, Life Style Sports, and lucky winners got to hang up their family crested jersey in the dressing room before the game and personally receive their one of a kind jersey off the player who represented them on the pitch.
The new home jersey features the names of the six Munster counties on the nape of the collar with the club motto, ‘To the Brave and Faithful Nothing is Impossible’ embroidered into the inside neck of the jersey. This jersey epitomises the Red Army: loyal, brave and intimidating.
The alternate kit takes a more modern approach to the provincial tartan with black, dark grey and onix colouring standing bold against the bright red of the logos and jersey numbering. As per the home jersey, the alternate kit also features the club motto in the nape of the military style collar along with the names of the six Munster counties.
The home and alternate kits are available to purchase now from all Life Style Sports stores and online at www.lifestylesports.com
