PICTURE | Stormers unveil new-look Super Rugby jerseys


Cape Town - The three jerseys the Stormers will wear in their 2020 Super Rugby campaign have been revealed and are set to go on sale to the public in December.

The 2020 campaign will see the Stormers run out in three new, power jersey designs, from apparel sponsor BLK, with home, away and Thor designs available at all major retailers and the official online shop in December.

Honouring the history and heritage of the Stormers, the home jersey retains the traditional blue and white stripes synonymous with Western Province Rugby, which are set at a diagonal across the front, with a red trim which represents the Disa flower of the Western Province Rugby Football Union.

Inspired by the rich history of the Khoisan, the back of the jersey features 15 figures standing together, which represents the team and pays tribute to the Cape roots of South Africa's first people. 

Given the Stormers' Cape home, the figures on the jersey reference the figures of the national coat of arms - inspired by the Linton Panel - and motto which translates to 'diverse people unite'.

The away jerseys are black in the style of the 1999 Men in Black campaign to commemorate the coming of age of the Stormers 21 years on, with the diagonal white stripes coming over the shoulder and the 15 figures ever-present, standing together on the back.

There is also a new version of the Marvel-inspired Thor jersey, which is now predominantly silver as a suit of armour for the Stormers and their fans to wear.

The Stormers will commence their 2020 Super Rugby campaign at home against the Hurricanes on Saturday, February 1.
