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.

“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.

Our team have worked closely with BLK to deliver an exceptional product line for our supporters”.
