We are really excited about the launch of our ‘Home’ kit for the 2021/22 season. At Connacht Rugby, our values are extremely important to us and so to be able to incorporate a shape in the jersey design which reflects and represents our values of Ambition, Belief and Community, makes it very special. The team at BLK have done a great job in bringing this to life in such an eye-catching way, meaning that every time a player or fan pulls on a jersey, they really will be sharing in the ‘Connacht Way’”.

We are delighted to be launching the new Connacht rugby ‘Home’ kit featuring BLK’s latest on field developments.
