“The new kit is striking representation of Welsh rugby tradition and we are delighted to be able to launch our new seven-year partnership with Macron in such a spectacular way,” said WRU CEO Steve Phillips.

“The Welsh Rugby Union represents one of the pillar stones of world rugby and for Macron to stand side by side with this sporting giant, means that we as a brand, have reached yet another great milestone,” said Macron‘s CEO Gianluca Pavanello.

We hope that our hard work has paid off and that the new collection will be loved by players and fans alike and that the kits evoke the emotion that such a great nation deserves.”

Welsh Rugby 2020-2021 Home Kit

Bespoke and custom-made by Macron for Welsh Rugby, the new Wales Rugby 2020-21 ‘home’ jersey from Macron has a deep traditional Welsh red. SImilar to the LFC 20-21 home kit, it has a classic white v-neck collar tipped with green trim, with the same detailing to be found on the sleeve.

All the details of the Macron Welsh Rugby 2020-21 shirt are totally different to the Liverpool jersey, of course.

"A set of unique features sees the red dragon of the Welsh flag embossed across lower back of the shirt, an embossed pattern covering the sleeves – cleverly transforming the hexagonal shape of the WRU three-feathers logo into ‘dragon scales’ – and the Welsh word ANRHYDEDD (honour), also embossed, on the back of the collar."

Shirt designs are finalized around 12 months ahead of the launchThe Wales 2020-21 rugby home shirt has been designed by Macron without knowledge of the Liverpool 20-21 home kit pretty certainly, of course. Shirt designs are finalized at least 12 months ahead of the launch usually.
