Warriors unveil new kit

Rufus McLean and Ollie Smith show off Glasgow's new kit
Glasgow Warriors have unveiled their new 2022/23 home and alternate match kits, as preparations continue for the new United Rugby Championship and EPCR Challenge Cup campaigns

The new home kit will be worn for the first time at the Caledonian Stadium in Inverness this evening, as Franco Smith's side take on Ayrshire Bulls in their opening pre-season encounter.

An all-black home shirt pays homage to the club's history to mark the 150th anniversary of Glasgow District Rugby Union (GDRU), the amateur team from which the Glasgow Warriors was formed in the 1990s.

The club's logo and the motto 'WHATEVER IT TAKES' feature on the back of the neck, while the cuff of both sleeves feature the official Glasgow Warriors tartan.

The shirt features embossed, tone on tone graphics on the sleeves, sides and bottom back. The design consists of the traditional GDRU shield, paying tribute to those that have gone before. The back of the neck is printed with the date 1872, the year in which the original club was formed. This date also refers to the 1872 Cup, the challenge match between Glasgow and Edinburgh considered one of the world's oldest derby matches.

The new away shirt is also inspired by a famous era in the club's history, recalling the Glasgow Caledonians side of the late 1990s. A primarily blue jersey with black collar and sleeve cuffs with black collar and sleeve cuffs, the shirt also features a large red stripe across the shoulders that fades onto the sleeves in a pixelated graphic.

The Macron Hero logo appears in black on the right breast and the club's badge on the left. The Away shirt is also embellished by another graphic detail; a series of tone on tone Vs in various thicknesses in one half of the shirt, inspired by the club's logo. The back of the neck and sweat band are customised just like those of the Home shirt, and the date 1872 again appears at the back of the neck, this time in white.

Supporters are able to buy the shirt online and in store at the Official Scottish Rugby Store at 44 Queen Street, Glasgow. Opening hours: 10.00am-6.00pm Monday-Saturday and 10.00am-5.00pm Sunday.
