The Springboks will kick off a new era under Allister Coetzee in the opening Test of the Castle Lager Incoming Series against Ireland on 11 June at DHL Newlands in Cape Town.
The new supporters replica jersey is proudly made in South Africa for South Africans, by South Africans. The new jersey features enhanced durability and quality through updated textured fabrication.
The launch of the supporters replica jersey coincides with ASICS’ “Want It More” worldwide marketing campaign that was launched earlier in 2016 as the Springboks prepare for the Castle Lager Incoming Series, which consists of three Test matches against Ireland in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Port Elizabeth next month.
ASICS’ “Want It More” campaign for 2016 was filmed on location in South Africa with the country’s passion for sport serving as the ideal setting to inspire athletes both locally and worldwide to enhance and further improve their levels of performance.
According to Brian Kerby, the General Manager for ASICS South Africa, providing the Springboks and Springbok supporters with the best possible equipment is paramount for the company.
Kerby explains: “We are extremely proud to provide a locally made product that is of a world-class standard, and most importantly, to see supporters wear a jersey that is manufactured by the nation they represent.”
Jurie Roux, CEO of SA Rugby, said “The improved quality of the new supporters replica jersey fits with the aim of SA Rugby to consistently deliver improved performances and we are looking forward to this new apparel contributing towards a successful 2016 campaign,”
“We’re looking forward to the team bringing smiles to the faces of South African supporters wearing the new ASICS supporters replica jersey.” said Roux.
