Under Armours Welsh Rugby Union range will launch this weekend

The all-new Welsh Rugby Union Under Armour national range for 2015-2017 will be unveiled on Saturday 8th August, during Wales’ Dove Men Test match against Ireland.

The kit will be revealed live to supporters at the Millennium Stadium and to the millions watching the BBC Wales broadcast in a unique launch designed to give first sight of the new national jersey directly to fans.

The WRU and official partner Under Armour plan to get right to the heart of what the Welsh jersey is all about, by revealing it directly to fans at the Millennium Stadium.

“The first people to catch sight of the new kit and its associated range will be the fans and the players selected by Warren Gatland to face Ireland at the Millennium on Saturday 8th will be the first to wear it,” said WRU chairman Gareth Davies.

“It is always a special moment when the Wales captain leads his team out onto the pitch for the first time in a new campaign and World Cup preparations begin in earnest against the Irish at 2.30pm that afternoon.

“That moment is much anticipated and we will be tapping into some of the drama and theatre of that match-day experience by ensuring that this is also the first moment when our new 2015-2017 range is seen by our fantastic fans worldwide.”

It will include many of, and update several of, Under Armour’s existing cutting-edge innovations in their current team wear to ensure peak performance during the rest of 2015 and beyond.

The kit will draw inspiration from elements of Wales’ national history, embodying heritage, strength and protection with its designs.
