On Friday, New Balance and the FAI unveiled Ireland’s home strip for 2019/20. The new kit will be worn by the Republic of Ireland men’s and women’s teams as they set their sights on qualification for the upcoming European Championships in 2020 and 2021.
This kit officially launches “Through It All”, New Balance’s campaign for the year, which aims to encapsulate the devoted and loyal spirit of Ireland’s legendary fans.
The jersey is designed in Eden Green with tonal pinstripes. It also features Eden Green detailing around the collar and sleeves, whilst a Gold border frames the Ireland crest on the chest.
Matching Eden Green shorts in athletic fit also come with a step-change finish to aid freedom of movement. Eden Green socks, inscribed with the word Éire, complete the kit.
The goalkeeper strip arrives in Sparkling Grape colourway with detailing in what we now know to be known as a Bleached Lime Glo shade.
“The new Republic of Ireland kit feels special. It has a new look and feel to it, which the players instantly liked.,” said Callum O’Dowda.
“It’s always an honour to pull on the Ireland jersey, and I hope that the Ireland supporters like this kit as much as the players do. We hope to deliver some big results for them whilst wearing it.”
“We are extremely proud to be launching the 2019/20 Ireland home kit,” added Jonathan Courtenay, Managing Director of JACC Sports, Irish Distributor for New Balance Football.
“Most results in the group stages of this campaign have been positive and we hope that we can get a win against Denmark and see the team qualify for Euro 2020, with games in Dublin being an added incentive.”
“Equally the Women’s team and all age grades are performing really well, so we look forward to seeing all of the teams in the new kit.”
The New Balance Republic of Ireland Home kit will be available to purchase this Friday, November 8th on www.faishop.com and in most major retailers across Ireland.
