Leinster Rugby have confirmed this morning that the province have signed a long-term kit deal with German sportswear giant, Adidas, from the start of the 2018/19 season.
The five-year deal brings to an end a partnership with Canterbury of New Zealand which has spanned nearly two decades, and sees the Champions Cup favourites join Munster, Harlequins and Brive in Adidas’ Northern Hemisphere club stable.
Leinster Rugby CEO Mick Dawson said, “Adidas is one of the most famous brands in the world, never mind in the team wear and sports marketing landscape. We are delighted to have such an iconic brand alongside us as we look to grow as a club both on the field and off.
“Already we have seen some great innovations from their team for our training and match kit and we look forward to seeing the kit on the players and indeed seeing the replica kit in-store from June.
“A new jersey gets everyone excited and a new jersey with a new kit supplier like adidas doubly so.”
The new Leinster Adidas jerseys will be revealed in June.
