Drawing inspiration from the sight of their homeland when returning home while also nodding to the fans returning “home” again to the Aviva Stadium after two very difficult years, Umbro launch the Ireland 2022 home shirt.

Set to be worn by both the men’s and women’s national teams, the new Ireland home shirt from Umbro will be debuted by Stephen Kenny’s Senior Men’s team at home to Belgium in the Republic of Ireland’s official centenary game on 26 March. The women will then follow suit, wearing it for the first time in their game against Sweden on 12 April 12.

The design draws inspiration from the country’s iconic landscape, with multiple shades of green used to create the “field” effect in a sublimated graphic. The cuffs then use a two tone effect, with white on the front and orange from the back, creating a bold tricolour of national identity. 

We are delighted to release the new Republic of Ireland home kit just in time for St. Patrick’s day and ahead of the FAI’s centenary match against the world’s number one team, Belgium,” said Jonathan Courtenay, Managing Director of JACC Sports, Irish Distributor for Umbro. “We have attempted to bring an iconic and uniquely Irish look and feel to the shirt and we hope to see it worn with great success as the team starts its Nations League and European Championship qualifying campaigns. We focused much of our design efforts on emphasising and evoking the spirit and the importance of our flag to our fans by using a strong tricolour element throughout the kit.
