Inspired by the Welsh national anthem ‘Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau’ (Land of my Fathers), Under Armour’s new design is intrinsically linked to the Welsh landscape, using the topography of unique areas around the country mapped out on the shoulders with subtle stitching.
No two shirts will be the same as these contour lines, taken from maps, including Neath – the birthplace of the WRU in 1881 – Lampeter, Bangor and Cardiff are detailed in a unique way which is bespoke to each new piece of clothing.
Lampeter is widely believed to be the first town in Wales to have fielded a rugby team in the 1870s, Cardiff has pride of place on the kit as home of Principality Stadium and Bangor is a proud rugby city and founding club representing the North.
The shirt remains at the forefront of sports apparel design with Under Armour’s latest innovative technology crafted into every aspect of the kit. Function panels on the shirt in compression fabric and mesh allow the grid sections to function as individual panels, maintaining a freedom of movement without sacrificing on weight, durability and breathability. Ventilated underarm panels with four-way stretch then offer further breathability and player mobility.
The presence of ArmourGrip™ supports ball retention in play, whilst Under Armour’s HeatGear® technology is incorporated to ensure maximum comfort for the players and help keep the body temperature stable throughout the match.
