Canterbury, the official kit partner to Irish Rugby, reveals the highly anticipated new Irish home and alternate jerseys that will be worn by the team at the upcoming Rugby World Cup in France this autumn.

The jersey is launched alongside Canterbury’s ‘We Go Together’ campaign, which calls on Irish fans around the world to unite in support of the Ireland team during the tournament. Going beyond just the 80 minutes, it looks at rugby’s connections to Irish culture and the power of the sport in creating unity, promoting self-expression and inspiring generations of fans.  

The campaign will feature up-and-coming Irish music artists and Ireland rugby supporters, Galway rapper Celaviedmai and Belfast singer-songwriter Winnie Ama.

We’ve enjoyed a successful partnership with Canterbury over the past decade and this year will be our most important yet, as we prepare to celebrate the coming together of thousands of Irish fans around the world.”
