New home jersey unveiled

Ospreys Rugby and Canterbury have today revealed the new 2017/18 home kit for the upcoming season.


The new kit marks the beginning of Canterbury and Ospreys’ partnership, a strong collaboration that sees Wales’ most successful region wearing Canterbury for the next four years.

A combination of Ospreys unique heritage and Canterbury’s latest technological innovations has delivered a kit that supporters will be proud to wear off the field and players will be best equipped to deal with the strenuous demands on the field. 

With the design focus on the iconic mask, the accompanying kit colourways of the traditional Ospreys Rugby black and bright white have been maintained. These highlight the sublimated ‘bedrock’ hoop graphic positioned on the sleeves of the jersey - a depiction of the foundations of ‘Ospreylia’ within Wales.

The integration of Canterbury’s Thermoreg, VapoDri and Vaposhield technology within the fabric ensures optimum comfort and aids playing performance across all disciplines. 

Canterbury’s commitment to the testing of kit ensures that the new Ospreys Rugby kit is constructed and equipped to endure the most gruelling of games, resulting in an increase of durability and strength when under pressure.


Canterbury’s Head of Sports Marketing, Simon Rowe, said;

“We want the players and their supporters to feel and believe the sense of pride the Ospreys jersey represents. Our commitment to the game means we’ve used the latest technology features to help the players reach the top of their game on the field. We’ve also worked closely with the team to create a brand new design which combines innovation and heritage, to embody the traditions at the heart of the Welsh rugby region. 
“We’re really excited the Ospreys supporters will be the first to see this jersey in action at the inaugural Canterbury Cup at Liberty Stadium and we know that thousands will be ready to snap up their own replica kits and merchandise ahead of the big game. Each Canterbury jersey purchased by supporters now has its own unique identification number – this is a tribute to the individual fans who, collectively, make a massive contribution to the team and I’m sure will continue to do so as the Ospreys kick off an exciting new season.”

Huw Warren, Head of Commercial, Ospreys Rugby, said: 

“We are delighted to be able to take the wraps off the eagerly awaited home jersey this morning, which we are expecting will prove extremely popular with our supporters. Canterbury have pulled out all the stops with their first version of the Ospreys shirt, producing a shirt that is a modern twist on an iconic, historic design.

“Canterbury are world leading, innovative and always looking to break the mould in everything they do, which is why this relationship is perfect for Ospreys Rugby.”
