The Scarlets have revealed their brand new 2018/19 home shirt that the 2018 Pro14 finalists will wear throughout their league and European campaigns.
The new shirt is the classic Scarlets red on the body, with a darker shade around the shoulders and sleeves, complete with a new classic-style fold-over collar and interesting V-shaped closed placket.
The most notable facet of the new shirt is the sheer number of sponsors therein – the Scarlets are claiming that the record 18 sponsor logos covering the shorts and jersey mean that the value of the shirt has increased by 70% compared to last season, but it’s surely going to upset those who worry that Pro14 jerseys are heading down the same dark path of sponsor-trumping-design as certain French clubs.
The Scarlets home jersey is available for preorder now, and will be joined by a new away jersey (which is rumoured to be blue and white with gold trim) which will be unvieled next month.
