Republic of Ireland players, Simon Cox, Sean St. Ledger, Keiren Westwood and Shane Long teamed up to launch the new Umbro Ireland home jersey.

 

The new Ireland Three sponsored jersey will be worn for the first time for the World Cup qualifier match against Germany on 12th October and will be available for pre-order online from September 28th and for purchase from the FAI Store on Westmoreland St and all good sports retailers nationwide from Friday 5th October.

 

This “tailored by Umbro” jersey has a classic feel with a modern twist. A new marl effect performance material has been used with the popular St. Patricks Green colouring giving a beautiful handle and graphic effect to the jersey. The new multi ribbed green v-neck collar adds a tailored touch. Paired with green trimmed white shorts and green socks with orange and white hoop detail, the new home jersey completes the latest new kit for the boys in green.

 

Looking forward to the Germany game, where the new jersey will be worn for the first time by the team, Sean St. Ledger said, “We needed to get three points against Kazakhstan.  When you have Germany second, it is always tough, they are a very good side so to get three points against Kazakhstan was a good boost. We are now looking to get another three points against Germany. They are a squad full of talent. When you look at them at the last number of tournaments, they have always gotten far. We know it is going to be a tough game.

 

I was on the bench the last time we played Germany so hopefully this time I’ll start. These are the games you want to be involved in as a professional footballer.

 

The new jersey is very nice to wear, it’s light and when you are out on the pitch, it’s exactly what you are looking for. The new jersey will be available just in time for the Germany game so hopefully we will see all the fans in the Aviva cheering us on for three points!”
