The price is for an exact replica of the one that Gatland’s side will wear in New Zealand
In 2013, it was £90 for the official Lions jersey that the side wore in Australia
A £70 supporters’ jersey will also be released in November
Fans wanting to get their hands on a replica British and Irish Lions jersey for the 2017 tour will have to pay as high as £120, according to reports.
In 2013, a pricey £90 would get you the official Lions jersey that the side wore in Australia. That now looks like a bargain!
The replica shirts will go on sale in April 2017 and are an exact copy of the one Warren Gatland’s men will wear on the field against the All Blacks. A £70 supporters’ jersey will also be released in November as Canterbury reveal their design after taking over from adidas as official manufacturer.
The design is a closely guarded secret but it has been revealed that the scroll under the Lions badge will say ‘Since 1888’ rather than the tour destination.
Lions chief operating officer Charlie McEwen told Sportsmail: “Once every four years we reveal our jersey and this moment is huge for Lions supporters. I have no doubt that they will love the new replica match jersey.
“In addition, there will be a souvenir match jersey and this will be the one worn by the players in New Zealand.
“That will be a bespoke piece of sporting memorabilia to keep as a once in a lifetime true collectors’ item.”
