Ireland U21 Continues To Wear Old New Balance Gear

In all matches of the U21 Ireland national team, the youth team was wearing the old jerseys featuring the New Balance logo as well as other New Balance stuff - something you would not expect for a team like Ireland and Umbro.

The Irish Football Federation has not communicated on the reasons for this joint presence of Umbro and New Balance on the shirts. However, with each post about the U21 team on the social networks of the Ireland national team, the questions of the supporters are numerous around this subject.
