Ahead of the 2017/18 Aviva Premiership campaign, Leicester Tigers have revealed brand new home and away jerseys that the 10-time English champions will wear throughout the 2017/18 domestic and European season.
The new jerseys are produced by a new kit supplier, Kukri, who take over after two years with Kooga. Kukri previously supplied Tigers’ midlands rivals, Wasps, and also produce gear for Ulster rugby in the Pro12.
“We’re really excited about the new partnership with Kukri,” Clive Galloway, kit manager at Leicester Tigers. “The fabric for both kits is geared towards performance and the quality of the design and style speaks for itself. The players love it and we hope the fans will too.”
The new home shirt is a classic take on the iconic Tigers colours – it’s a retro-vibed dark green, white and red hooped design, with the addition of a darker shade of green into the body, and an old-school fold-over collar.
“It’s always exciting for us boys to see what we’ll be wearing in the new season and I’m impressed,” Scrum half Ben Youngs said at the reveal.
The away jersey is the traditional white, but accented with pinstripes of dark green and red, with the same old-fashioned collar as the home design.
