This is the new UMBRO IRELAND change kit that Giovanni Trapattoni’s men will wear for the first time in the crucial group 8 World Cup Qualifier against Italy in Bari on April 1st.
The kit as seen on Kevin Kilbane, Noel Hunt and Dean Kiely (in the goal-keepers kit) is white with a spaced bar shadow effect and a dark green pin stripe running as a hoop around the body, the shorts are dark green and the kit is finished off with white sox trimmed with dark green.
“We are delighted with the new kit” Jonathan Courtenay Director of football for Umbro Ireland said.
“The kit has lots of elements to it including the latest in moisture management fabric technologies, the look is fresh yet familiar and we are sure that the fans will love it as much as their heroes who wear it. It was one of the best reactions we have ever had to a kit when we showed it to the players, everyone loved the soft touch and light-weight feel of the shirt”.
The kit goes on sale world-wide on March 20th and fans can have their kit personalised with the official numbers and names at the brand new FAI UMBRO SUPPORTERS STORE on the ground floor of Carroll’s Gift Store on Westmorland Street in Dublin City Centre from 9am on the 20th.
The new FAI official supporters store will be the only shop in Ireland to carry the full range of Umbro FAI merchandise as well as all other Umbro team kits and clothing.
