Ospreys Rugby and kit provider Canterbury have today revealed the new 2018/2019 home kit, which will be worn by the team throughout the forthcoming season.
The linear design of the new home shirt is inspired by the unity of the Ospreys team and their supporters, the ‘Made of Many’ campaign a nod to the people and clubs across the Region which the team represents. It is that bond which enables the team to focus on success and interweave passion into their performance.
To enable the players to keep up with the demands of the game of rugby, Canterbury has designed a kit that delivers the best in function and fit. The new kit features a new one-piece crossover crew collar which reduces neck pump, keeping the players cooler and removing distraction. The forward facing side seam allows the jersey to twist with the player, aiding smooth movement. It also includes VapoDri technology, which is designed to wick moisture away from the body and maintain core temperature
The new home strip will be worn for the first time in Saturday’s pre-season game against Northampton Saints at Morganstone Brewery Field. It is complemented by the Alternate kit which will be launched on Thursday 23rd August and will be worn during both the 2018/19 and 19/20 campaigns.
Commenting on the launch of the new range, Simon Rowe, Head of Sports Marketing at Canterbury of New Zealand, said:
“We’re very excited to reveal this visually exciting Ospreys home kit, which combines both performance and superior design aesthetic. We consistently strive to deliver innovative products and we are confident the new kit will deliver the best in terms of performance and comfort.”
Ospreys Managing Director, Andrew Millward, commented:
“It’s fantastic to see how Canterbury have built on the strong history we have at the Ospreys of innovative and bold jersey design, creating something unique, unlike anything our supporters have seen before. While focusing on our traditional black and white, they’ve taken it in a new direction that will excite everyone.”
