Black and sky blue Macron kit launched for 2018/19 season
Glasgow Warriors have revealed their brand new home and alternate Macron kits for the 2018/19 season.
The striking new home kit which is predominately black with a touch of tartan, will be worn by the team for the first time in tomorrow’s pre-season encounter with Harlequins at North Inch in Perth.
The black home jersey has a large faded tartan strip across the front and rear, while the same tartan detailing is featured on the cuffs of the sleeves and inside the collar. The Macron and Warriors logos are on the front, along with the logo of the club’s Official Community Partner, SP Energy Networks.
On the back of the collar is a subtle “WHATEVER IT TAKES” and on the rear base of the stretch panel of the jersey is an embossed design of the Glasgow District Rugby Union (GDRU) badge.
The home jersey has a Body Fit cut and the kit is finished off with black shorts with tartan details on both sides and black socks with two blue stripes around the top. The jersey is also available in a replica version with a supporter’s fit.
The alternate kit tips its hat to the club’s origins and for the first time with Macron the club returns to its traditional away colour of sky blue. The design has modern white horizontal stripes both on the front and back divided by a black pinstripe. The polo collar, sleeve cuffs and trim along the bottom of the jersey are white.
The Macron, Glasgow Warriors and SP Energy Networks logos are on the front and “WHATEVER IT TAKES” is featured in blue on the back of the collar and the GDRU badge is embossed on the back.
Sky blue shorts with horizontal white stripes on both flanks and socks with horizontal white and sky blue hoops complete the alternate kit, which has the same technical features as the home jersey.
In the number block on the back of both shirts are the names of the club’s centurions who have played 100 or more times for the Warriors.
The brand new Macron kit is available now at shop.scottishrugby.org and supporters can buy the kit for the first time at The Famous Grouse Pre-Season Challenge in Perth tomorrow.
Jonny Gray joined the Warriors as a Scottish Rugby Elite Development player in the summer of 2012 after a number of standout displays for Hamilton and Scotland under-20.
