NEWS: Ospreys reveal 2019/20 European jersey

The Ospreys have revealed the brand new European jersey that they’ll be wearing for their forthcoming 2019/20 Heineken Champions Cup campaign.

The new shirt is a black heathered base design with blue and and grey accents, but without doubt the most striking talking point is the eye-melting design on the front of the jersey.

We presume this is a continuation of the ‘It’s in our DNA’ campaign that the new away shirt started, but this time they’ve gone full no-subtlety with a bright yellow DNA helix running across the bottom of the design.

The top of the jersey features a grey curved pinstripe patter that can best be described as ‘1980s ceiling’.

The Ospreys will wear their new European jersey when they take on Saracens, Munster and Racing 92 in their Champions Cup pool, and will presumably wear it again in 2020/21 as they tend to wear Euro shirts for two season.

  1. Not as bad a kit as it seems….certainly better than the last Euro kit that looked like a bad mid 90s Treorchy RFC effort.

    The Its in our DNA helix from this year is obvious to see, and is in keeping with the micro DNA helix’s on the away shirt. The curved patterns on the front are clearly a continuation of the “Bedrock” theme that the Ospreys and Canterbury used for the first round of shirts they had in 2017 and the bright colours offer a nice contrast with the grey. The blue i’s obviously for commercial reasons to tie in to Protecht and Lovell before them delas (in the case of the home shirt at least).

    Its as bonkers an ospreys shirt as they have had…and it looks good. Nowhere near the hall of shamers they’ve had previously such as the orange 2009 third shirt, or the 2010 jester training shirt or even the last Euro kit they had.
