The home kit is completed with simple black shorts and gold and black socks to mirror the jersey itself.
Innovative technology is woven throughout, including ArmourGrid™, a unique material that is virtually impossible to grab, allowing players to slip tackles and break contact.

Strategically placed stretch panels and HeatGear® technology also help wipe moisture away from the body and support the team’s performance on the field.
Nick Eastwood, chief executive of Wasps, said: “The Wasp-like hoop design has a bold look about it and is instantly recognisable, making it the perfect jersey for our supporters to wear with pride.
“It’s the first time in six years that the players will be sporting hoops, and combined with the latest apparel technology, we’re hoping its eye-catching look will give players an added advantage when they are out on the pitch.”
Fans can get their hands on the jersey for the first time today by heading down to the club shop at the Ricoh Arena between 2pm and 6pm.
Members of the first team squad will also be in attendance between 4pm and 6pm to meet fans.
