Connacht Rugby’s new European Jersey is available in Elvery's Intersport stores nationwide and www.elverys.ie from today (Wednesday October 5)

BLK, in its fourth year as Connacht Rugby's official kit partner, worked closely with Connacht management on the new design to encompass the entire province of Connacht as they prepare for a return to European Champions Cup rugby.

Head of Commercial & Marketing at Connacht Rugby Brian Mahony said “We are all really happy with the new-look European jersey and delighted to share it with our supporters today. It's an exciting time for the team and province as we make a return to Champions Cup rugby in just eleven days' time and prepare for big games against Toulouse, Wasps and Zebre.”

Bruce Wood, Brand Manager at BLK Ireland added  “It's fantastic to see Connacht Rugby prepare for their return to the top tier of European rugby.

“The whole province has really rallied behind this team and their spirit is deep within the DNA of Connacht Rugby. We're really looking forward to seeing the team take to the field in their new Euro kit.”

The new European jersey features strands of blue and fluro green across the chest and back on a solid black base colour. The shoulder and upper back panel revert to fluro green to break up the detailed graphic component of the jersey.

The new European Jersey will be available to purchase in Elverys Intersport stores and online at www.elverys.ie from October 5, 2016.
