BLK, in its fourth year as Connacht Rugby's official kit partner, worked closely with Connacht management on the new design to encompass the entire province of Connacht as they prepare for a return to European Champions Cup rugby.

Commenting on the reveal head of commercial and marketing at Connacht Rugby Brian Mahony said: "We are all really happy with the new-look European jersey and delighted to share it with our supporters today.

"It's an exciting time for the team and province as we make a return to Champions Cup rugby and prepare for big games against Toulouse, Wasps and Zebre."

The new European jersey features strands of blue and fluro green across the chest and back on a solid black base colour.

The jerseys are made with BLK's exclusive Exotek fabric throughout the main body which maximises player comfort and manoeuvrability.

Exotek is the strongest, lightest and most breathable and soft-to-touch fabric ever used by BLK with its four-way stretch properties setting it apart as a market leader.

This is paired with subtle hints of green integrated into the new BLK collar design.
