Springboks World Cup 2019 Home & Away Kit

For all my rugby readers that are BOK BEFOK, here are the official Springboks home and away jerseys for the upcoming 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan.

The Springboks will be wearing an “unstoppable” jersey, designed and manufactured by ASICS, which features technological advancements to give the men in green and gold an extra edge at the Rugby World Cup in Japan later this year.

The new Springbok jersey, which will go on sale in South Africa on Friday 26 April 2019, was designed with unique characteristics and features to compliment the playing style and technical requirements of the Boks.

At the same time, ASICS launched an all-new brand film, “What is the difference?”, which offers an inside-look into the dedication, sacrifice and focus it requires for a professional rugby player to be selected to represent his country on the biggest stage that rugby has to offer.

“It’s a momentous year as the Springboks aim to win our third World Cup in Japan,” said Jurie Roux, CEO of SA Rugby. “Every little detail counts and that includes all the focus and effort put in by ASICS into making this the most advanced jersey for the Boks to wear in Japan and support them in their quest to reach their goal.”

ASICS and the Springboks tested more than 10 versions of the jersey with 30 different fabrics at their laboratories in Japan.

The Springboks’ home jersey has a more traditional olive green and orange gold look that draws inspiration from the 1995 Rugby World Cup winning team.

Furthermore, as with the RWC tournaments in 2011 and 2015 and in line with World Rugby’s commercial requirements for playing apparel, the Springbok emblem will again move to the left sleeve of the jersey, with the South African national emblem, the King Protea, the jersey manufacturer’s mark (ASICS) and the RWC emblem on the front.

Closer to the of the Rugby World Cup, ASICS will also be launching a series of tongue-in-cheek videos aimed at helping visitors to Japan as well as supporters watching from home to get insights into local customs and traditions featuring some of your favorite Springbok players.

The Springboks start their 2019 Rugby World Cup campaign against New Zealand on 21 September 2019.

The all-new Springbok jersey will be available in sport stores in South Africa from Friday, 26 April 2019 and worldwide in June 2019. The RRP of the new jersey is R750 (ex VAT) and it can be ordered from the SA Rugby Shop by clicking here.
