Connacht Rugby in partnership with BLK Sport, have revealed their new Home, Away and European jerseys for the 2020/21 season. The new jerseys are made in BLK’s improved Exotek fabric throughout the main body. Exotek was created exclusively for BLK to enhance athlete performance, while maximising player manoeuvrability.

The new Home jersey features a blend of greens on the torso and main body, with a solid black shoulder and sleeve with fluro green trim. The jersey also features a unique silicon gel logo application and fluro green Connacht branding on the lower back. The new Home jersey will be used for the first time when the Connacht Eagles take on Munster ‘A’ on the 19th of September in a behind closed doors pre-season fixture at The Sportsground. The new Away jersey will be worn the following week in the return fixture at Thomond Park.

The 2020/21 Away jersey brings a clean and classic look with a solid black base, featuring gold trim and detailing. The jersey also features a unique silicon gel logo application and gold Connacht branding on the lower back.

The new European jersey is a striking mix of electric green, solid black and vibrant purple. The jersey also features a unique silicon gel logo application and black Connacht branding on the lower back.

Our new principal partner, Genesys, will also feature across the front of the shirts for the very first time.

Commenting on the unveiling of the new jerseys, Head of Commercial and Marketing at Connacht Rugby Brian Mahony said:

“This year’s range is the strongest we have had and the feedback from the players has been fantastic. BLK have introduced some great garments this year, continuing to innovate the range. There is something there for everyone – from those who are looking for something subtle and smart, to those looking to make more of a statement. Our team have worked closely with BLK to deliver an exceptional product line for our supporters”.

Commenting on the new Connacht Rugby jerseys, Bruce Wood, Head of Brand Ireland at BLK Sport, said:

“Delighted to be launching all three kits together. All three are strong, distinctive and different. We’ve worked hard with Connacht Rugby management to deliver a range the players and supporters will be excited about. We look forward to seeing the kits on-field both in the Guinness PRO 14 and in the Heineken Champions Cup tournaments”.

The full Connacht range is exclusively available at Intersport Elverys and online at elverys.ie now.

The senior squad are coming to the end of their fourth week of pre-season with four new additions joining training this week. View the photos here.

Ireland internationals Kieran Marmion, Tiernan O’Halloran, Finlay Bealham and Dave Heffernan – who all featured for Ireland in the USA and Japan tour in June – returned to training after four weeks of recuperation.

Fiji international Naulia Dawai will return to training shortly having featured for Fiji on their summer tour that included a 27-22 victory over Scotland.

Along with a vigorous pre-season training programme on the pitch and in the gym, the squad have been visiting clubs across the province over the past four weeks.

40 squad members have been out to see the young players in our Summer and Excellence Camps in Galwegians, Ballinasloe, NUIG RFC, Sligo, Corrib, Carrick on Shannon, Loughrea, Castlebar, Gort, Westport, Monivea and Dunmore.

This week, 17 players were delighted to ring Season Ticket holders to say thanks for the support, safe to say the supporters appreciated the calls (see fan reaction below).

Following the launch of our new home kit last week, in association with BLK and Elverys Intersport, John Muldoon, Ultan DIllane and Bundee Aki visited fans the Corbett Court Elvery’s store.

Yesterday also saw the photoshoot for the new kit take place with the away and European jerseys to be launched next month.

While we await the fixture list for next season, two fixtures that have been confirmed are the pre-season clashes away to Wasps and at home against Bristol on Saturday, August 26, at 3pm. Tickets start from just €5 with entry free for Season Ticket holders.
