Munster today unveiled a stunning new red and gold home jersey for the 2017/18 season

The province makes a return to an all-red home kit, as it aims for Pro12 and Champions Cup success next season.

MUNSTER HAVE RELEASED their new home jersey for next season, with its traditional red adorned by gold-coloured font and an eye-catching design through the midriff.

The province said the new adidas kit draws inspiration from Munster’s heritage.

It features the Latin moto forte fideli nihil difficil (to the brave and faithful nothing is impossible) which decorated the ancient battle shield of one of the province’s greatest families, the McCarthy clan.

An antler tapestry runs through the middle of the new jersey, in tribute to the Munster stag, representing “bravery, determination and fearsome territorialism.”

“The 2017/18 Munster Rugby home and training ranges have that rare balance of classic style and modern flair that are rooted in the history of the team, the land and its people”, said Debbie Byrne, Marketing Director at Life Style Sports.

“This launch is both traditional and innovative with the continued partnership with Munster’s most creative supporters once again being enlisted to create their own unique and simultaneous unveilings.”
