Gloucester Rugby season ticket holders will get an exclusive opportunity to pre-order the brand new replica home shirt and have their name entered into an exclusive prize draw.
The new Gloucester Rugby playing shirt, designed and produced as before by Rugbytech and will feature a return to the club's iconic Cherry and White hoops, will be officially unveiled in July but will be available for pre-order from June 15th.
The history of the Cherry and White hooped shirt is an interesting one. Gloucester were originally set to wear a Navy blue strip but forgot their kit en route to an away game. They stopped off at Painswick RFC and borrowed some Cherry and White hooped shirts. The game was won and the new colours were adopted.
The hooped shirt has therefore been associated as Gloucester Rugby's traditional colours. The design returns by popular demand and will be the first time a hooped shirt has been the official first team jersey since the 2004-05 season.
2009-10 season ticket holders who pre-order their new shirt either online or at the club shop before 1st July will receive their purchase on the day of the official launch as well as being entered into an exclusive draw where one lucky winner will be invited to the official shirt launch where he or she and a guest will have the opportunity to have their photo taken with some of the first team players.
The lucky winner will also win hospitality for two at the first home Guinness Premiership match of the 2009-10 season.
The new shirt will retail at £70 for the Pro Player version, £50.00 for the adult version, £40.00 for the kids' and £35.00 for the infants' versions.
The new shirt will be available from S to XXXXL, from size 8 to size 16 for ladies and from small boys to XL boys.
The new shirt will be available for all supporters to pre-order from August 1st online.
