Connacht Release Brand New Alternate Kit

Connacht Rugby have released a brand new alternate kit for the 2018/19 season. 

The new jersey is made with BLK’s exclusive Exotek fabric throughout the main body bound with reinforced cover stitch and lycra panelling. Exotek was created exclusively by BLK to enhance athlete performance while maximising player manoeuvrability.

The new alternate jersey draws inspiration from the deep Atlantic Ocean, with a solid navy body, silver lycra panelling and logos, finished with striking fluro green piping and cover stitch detail. The jersey also features a unique silicon gel logo application and fluro green Connacht branding on the lower back.

Commenting on the unveiling of the new jersey, Head of Commercial and Marketing at Connacht Rugby Brian Mahony said: ’We are delighted with our new alternate jersey for the 18-19 season. BLK have yet again delivered a jersey that is both eye-catching and fresh whilst still representing Connacht Rugby. It’s a jersey that will be worn with pride by the players and supporters alike’’.

The new alternate jersey and training range are exclusively available at Intersport Elverys and online at from Friday 14th September at 10 am.

Connacht Rugby’s next task is an away clash against Edinburgh on Friday night; you can find team news here.
