Northampton Saints will take the field wearing a modern take on a classic kit during the 2021/22 season, with the new jersey a reimagining of the Club’s ‘best-ever kit’ following a supporter vote.
Alongside elite partner Macron – an international leader in sport apparel and teamwear – Saints have today launched the new design, which is inspired by Northampton’s 2008-10 jersey.
The original kit saw Saints lift both the European Challenge Cup and Anglo-Welsh Cup in consecutive seasons, and now after being voted as the ‘King of the Kits’ by thousands of supporters during last year’s lockdown, Chris Boyd’s side will don the new jersey this term at Franklin’s Gardens.
Player and supporter-fit jerseys, as well as a thick cotton traditional-fit version, are available to order NOW online from the Saints Store costing from £60 adult and £40 junior – with stock also available in-store from 12pm today.
“I love the blend of a modern design mixed with an all-time classic retro Saints jersey, and I’m sure the shirt will be a hit with our supporters too after last season’s voting,” said Club co-captain, Lewis Ludlam.
“Pulling on a Black, Green and Gold jersey and running out at Franklin’s Gardens is an incredible honour for anyone lucky enough to play for Northampton Saints, and the squad are working harder than ever in preseason to earn the right to wear this kit come the start of the new campaign.
“This season, with crowds returning to the stadium, no doubt it will feel more special than ever before – so I’m thrilled we have a special kit to match.”Lewis Ludlam
Predominantly green for 2021/22, the home shirt features prominent black and gold hoops across the chest and arms, and a traditionally-styled black collar. The strip is then completed by black shorts and socks with clean green and gold detailing.
This is the sixth straight season Macron have produced Saints’ matchday kits, with the Bologna-based manufacturer’s logo sitting in white on the right-hand side of the chest with Northampton Saints’ crest over the heart on the left.
Travis Perkins take their place on the front of the jersey in their 20th year as principal partner of the Club, while elite partners Carlsberg, cinch, Church’s Shoes, and GRS also feature on the 2021/22 strip.
Saints will wear the new jersey for the very first time during the home preseason clash with Ospreys, with tickets going on sale next week.
