GLASGOW Warriors have unveiled their new kit for the upcoming 2015/16 season - with a nod to the city they play in.

The new Macron-designed ‘Built for Glasgow’ kit features the Warriors’ standard colours of black and light blue, with a design of the famous Finnieston Crane on light blue panels on the side of the shirt.

The names of rugby clubs from Glasgow and the west of Scotland will be built into the design, while the white and blue change kit features the iconic design of the city’s Riverside Museum.

Warriors backrow James Eddie said: “I really like the new kit and I’m sure it’ll be popular with our supporters.

“It’s comfortable to wear and being from Glasgow I love the way in which iconic landmarks in the city have been incorporated into both designs.

“It’s also great to see the names of the clubs in Glasgow and the West of Scotland once again featured on our home shirt, as we represent all of them whenever we play.”

Macron CEO Gianluca Pavanello added: “Our designers worked very closely with the Warriors to learn and understand the culture of Glasgow and to make two unique, bespoke designs that are both technically advanced to reflect the teams requirements, while continuing Macron’s haute couture style.

“We hope we’ve given the fans something they can wear with pride.”
