Stars in Stripes: Canterbury unveils new USA Rugby jerseys

After a two-week online countdown, Canterbury proudly unveils the new USA Rugby home and alternate jerseys for the 2013-14 season. The XV’s home jersey will be first worn when USA Rugby take on European powerhouse Ireland in Houston on June 8th. The Sevens jerseys will make their debut at the Rugby World Cup Sevens to be held in Moscow starting June 28th.

Stars In Stripes: To mark the unveiling of the new jerseys, Canterbury has launched its “Stars In Stripes” campaign, which celebrates the new wave of USA Rugby stars emerging on the world scene. Combining these stars with stripe infused designs establishes a very iconic and patriotic look across all formats.

The fabrication used is a tough stretch fabric for comfort and ensures players have unrestricted movement. The players’ Test jerseys are tight fitting to assist with evading tackles, and include new curved side body seams that give players a grip point whilst binding in scrums. The Loop 21.2 neckline provides a new aesthetic and is a technical evolution, culminating in 3 layers of fabric for strength purposes.

Canterbury Chief Executive Officer Chris Stephenson said:

“Canterbury as a brand is synonymous with the sport of rugby, and we are proud to be the official kit supplier to USA Rugby during the game’s impressive growth in the States over recent years. The new set of jerseys blends a patriotic look with construction made for the rigours of the game in the 21st century, and we’re confident that fans and players alike will be delighted with the results.”

USA Rugby President and CEO, Nigel Melville said:

“USA Rugby is excited for the launch of the new 2013-14 Eagles kit and the expanded range of USA Rugby gear being made available to our members and fans. Canterbury has an excellent reputation for quality and performance that mirrors the mission behind USA Rugby’s high performance teams. We look forward to our Eagle stars shining in the Canterbury stripes both on and of the pitch.”

The “Pro” licensed jerseys offer supporters of USA Rugby the same look, but with a lifestyle fit more suited to supporting the team than being the team’s hooker. A full range of training and lifestyle clothing completes the offering, available from April 15th with new and exciting products being released throughout the year.

The new USA Rugby jerseys from Canterbury are available to buy now.

    they are fine. They show the American colors. and are not easily confused with other natiuons.

    Not really feeling the design of the 15 jersey. The home sevens looks good but the others i don't really care for

  • Guest (Traci)

    I like the Sevens jerseys. I feel the 15s could use a little more flare. The home jersey is a little plain for my liking.

  • Guest (Matt)

    Pretty dull. Both the home and alt sevens jersey are better than the fifteens, but still. I will say one positive thing, at least they got rid of that stupid looking breastplate detail from the previous design.

    They look like cheap softball uniforms, possibly as bad as the Scotland kit with the huge crosses. USA has not had a good looking kit since the tri colored hoops in the 90's.

    I'm really disappointed. I wanted to love the 15's jerseys as they haven't had a good one since the red Kooga shirt from the '07 RWC but they're very boring. CCC does fairly unimpressive work with all the other countries they handle as well, including the gold lining on the navy Scotland jersey while the white Scotland jersey is simply an eye-sore. Their white England shirt is good but how hard is that to get right? Anyhow, I suppose I'll have to wait for 2015's offering or for NIke, Reebok or Adidas to take over as primary jersey provider. Anyone else find it strange that a Middle Eastern airline is the primary sponsor of the American rugby team?

    Not a huge fan of the XVs uniforms - I hate the multi-themed alternate, and don't particularly like the think stripes on the chest of the home. I like the sevens uniforms. But to me the real question is, why don't we always wear what we wore for the USA Sevens in Las Vegas last month? That was my favorite shirt I've ever seen on a rugby pitch - All Blacks and Harlequins included.

    The 7s look ok. But the jerseys need to look like you were wrapped in a flag and dipped into patriotism

  • Guest (JDM)

    Look OK to me. Prefer the sevens home and alt to both XV versions. Shoulder stripes or stars. Lookin good.
