adidas European Munster Jersey Launched
13th September 2016 By Munster Rugby
adidas and Munster Rugby today revealed the new Munster European jersey, which is now available for pre-order exclusively at www.lifestylesports.com.
As this year marks the ten-year anniversary of Munster’s Heineken Cup success in Cardiff, the new European jersey is an interpretation of the jersey worn in the 2006 victorious final. The new kit will be worn during this season's Champions Cup campaign, starting with Munster’s opening game against Racing Metro on Sunday, October 16th.
The jersey sports a silver trim, inspired by the new Champions Cup, while the traditional Munster check runs throughout. Recognising the importance of Munster heritage, the jersey features impactful storytelling, with the kit socks showcasing powerful and inspirational quotes.
Players on the pitch will benefit from a range of innovations from adidas, including Aramis Body Mapping technology. adidas has studied and mapped the way the skin moves on players during a rugby match, and subsequently constructed the fabric, and the panels in the jersey so that the jersey moves in the same way.
The jersey cut lines have also been chosen to provide the closest fit possible, with no excess fabric, preventing the jersey becoming scragged in the tackle. The Munster Rugby European jersey also contains a PASMO DELTA fabric that is extremely strong, while light-weight with fantastic wicking properties, ensuring athletes remain cool despite the toughest and most demanding on-the-field situations.
The kit is available to pre-order exclusively at Life Style Sports online here and will be on exclusive general sale in Life Style Sports stores from September 28th with adult jerseys priced at €;70 and kids jerseys from €;55.
MRSC members are reminded that they have a 20% discount voucher for Life Style Sports which can be used against any one Munster item online – head to the Life Style Sports website to view the range.
