Wales fans have seen their side play in red through the ages, and since the first international in 1881. Alternate colours from green, white, yellow and gold through to grey and black have always featured and are regularly used as the base colour for change kit, but the dominant colour for the ‘home’ jersey has always been red, for 130 years.
And, of course, the two-season 2021/23 kit will once again be red – ‘Wales red’ to be exact. They need not worry in the valleys, mountains and hillsides of rugby’s spiritual home as ‘green’ is a reference to the environmentally friendly credentials of the Eco-Fabric used to make both the ‘home’ and ‘away’ kits.
The new jersey will be worn for the first time when Wales’ men face New Zealand in front of a full-house at Principality Stadium at the end of the month and the ‘alternate’ kit is set to feature against Fiji later in the Autumn Nations Series.
Both jerseys have a Body Fit and the fabrics used are Eco-Armevo and Eco-Bodytex, which ensure lightness, breathability, and maximum resistance.
