The design of the new Connacht Rugby Away kit features a clean look with both wide and pinstriped, hooped designs across the body. The colour palette consists of cloud grey, black and turquoise. The jersey is made with BLK’s Tricool Exotek fabric throughout the main body. It also features a lycra collar, BLK’s unique silicon gel logo application and taping details around the collar which reads “Engineered for Performance, Crafted for Sport, Issued to the Athlete.” Tricool Exotek fabric was created exclusively for BLK to enhance athlete performance, whilst at the same time allowing for maximum player maneuverability.
Commenting on the Away kit, Head of Commercial and Marketing at Connacht Rugby Philip Patterson said:“We’re very excited to launch our Away kit together with our kit partners BLK Sport and our retail partners Intersports Elverys. We wanted something a little bit different for our Away kit this year; something new and fresh. BLK Sport have delivered on that ask brilliantly, and we are confident that the eye catching colours and bold design choices come together in a jersey that both players and supporters will love equally.”
Commenting on the new Connacht Rugby Away jersey, Cian O Higgins, Brand Manager at BLK Sport, said:“We are immensely proud of our long-standing relationship with Connacht Rugby; a club rooted in Belief, Ambition & Community. Launching the new Connacht Rugby ‘Away’ kit for the 22/23 season is very exciting. The away kit allows us additional flexibility in the design process with the intention to deliver a kit that supporters will be proud to wear and that includes the crucial technical elements for the players.”
