London Irish is proud to reveal the Club’s 2022/23 home playing kit, manufactured by BLK.
The jersey features the iconic green colour tones - engraved in London Irish culture and championing the Hiberno-English heritage of the Club.
The fresh design for the 22/23 season incorporates a subtle hooped styling with Gaelic symbology on a traditional green background, completed with red and white trim on the collar to fully incorporate elements of the Club crest into the kit.
For added contrast this year has introduced 'cool grey' under-arm and side panels.
Inspired by the grassroots of the Club, the representative players in the kit launch constitute the wide-ranging nature of the banner the Club proudly operates on - one, inclusive Exile Nation.
Home-grown talent Henry Arundell has risen through the ranks of the Academy to first-team Club and international rugby over the last year, Ben White too earning acclaim for his native Scotland with new signings Danilo Fischetti and So’otala Fa’aso’o two of many Exiles hailing from overseas.
With comfort prioritised for maximum results on the playing field, the kit is made from a four-way stretch, Exotek/Lycra material with TriCool technology.
Following the theme of recent seasons, the Home shorts are in contrast to the shirt with a 'cool grey' base colour with green side panels which are adorned with ‘Exile Nation’ flag motifs, the socks also marrying greens with a cool grey turnover.
With the Club bidding farewell to the iconic ‘Back in Town’ design that has seen Irish through their first two seasons in Brentford, new names are welcomed on board to the Irish family.
Critical Metals plc. become the Exiles’ front-of-shirt sponsor for the upcoming campaign after recently joining the Club’s extensive sponsorship portfolio.
The new Home kit will get its first run-out by the first team squad in the upcoming pre-season fixture away to Munster Rugby this Friday (2nd September).
London Irish Head Coach Les Kiss shared his delight in the launching of the new kit range.
“The team and I at London Irish are delighted with how the kit has turned out, and it’s a pleasure to be working with BLK for another year,” Kiss stated.
“The design embraces our culture and passion here as Exiles, I can’t wait to see the lads run out in the new kit this week.”
In addition to the standard shirt, various enhanced alternatives are also available from personalisation, player specific options and squad signed versions with sizes available from two-years-old to 7XL.
Supporters can now pre-order their own replica kit here, with delivery to the Club expected by mid-September.
