Adidas are the new official kit partner of Pro 14 side Leinster Rugby, agreeing  5-year deal.

The new partnership will see Irish club’s senior coaches and players begin their 2018/19 pre-season training in June wearing their new adidas kit.

The agreement includes the men’s and women’s senior Leinster Rugby teams as well as Leinster Branch Referees, all age grade teams and all coaching and domestic staff working with the 76,000 players across the 12 counties of the province.

Club CEO, Mick Dawson said: “Adidas is one of the most famous brands in the world, never mind in the team wear and sports marketing landscape. We are delighted to have such an iconic brand alongside us as we look to grow as a club both on the field and off.

“Already we have seen some great innovations from their team for our training and match kit and we look forward to seeing the kit on the players and indeed seeing the replica kit in-store from June.

“A new jersey gets everyone excited and a new jersey with a new kit supplier like adidas doubly so.”

Speaking on behalf of Adidas, Phil Benton, Vice President Sales for UK & Ireland, added: “We are incredibly proud to be partnering with Leinster Rugby from the 18/19 season.

“It is a club with a rich history and unrivalled list of achievements across both domestic and European rugby. We look forward to working with the club at all levels from players, coaching staff and fans alike across a long and successful partnership both on and off the field of play.”
