The new home kit will be worn for the first time on 2nd March when the Republic of Ireland face Brazil in a friendly at Arsenal's Emirates Stadium and will be available for purchase from the 11th March from Carroll's FAI Store, Westmoreland Street, Dublin 2 and online from the FAIshop and the FSC Shop.
Commenting on the new kit Jonathan Courtenay from UMBRO, said "At UMBRO we pride ourselves on innovative kit design, I believe that it is the best kit we have produced for Ireland since our partnership began in 1994. Through individual fitting sessions with the Republic of Ireland Team we were able to create a bespoke smart fit for each player. The players loved the kit when we showed it to them late last year and I can't wait to hear the fans feedback".
