A SPECIAL DEDICATION AND A GREEN SOUL IN UNITED RUGBY CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH KITS
BOLOGNA, September 2022 - A club's jersey carries within it many symbols and messages, and Zebre Rugby Club's jersey for the 2022-2023 season is no different. New for next year is first and foremost the adoption of the yellow and blue colors that identify the logo of the City of Parma, the city that has hosted and supported the Italian Rugby Federation-owned franchise since 2012.
A bond, the one with the ducal city, already expressed during the presentation of the new Zebre Parma logo and now proudly reaffirmed in the game uniforms that will be worn by the North West XV on the occasion of the prestigious international challenges against the best teams from Europe, United Kingdom and South Africa competing in the two United Rugby Championship and EPCR Challenge Cup tournaments.
Innovation, but also history and identity: the new Zebre jerseys repurpose the inscription in memory of videoanalyst Luca Sisti, who died in 2015 following a car accident, and complement it with a tribute to Leonardo Mussini, the club's head of communications and marketing, who died prematurely in September 2021. LUCA AND LEO ALWAYS WITH US is the phrase depicted on the back neck that remembers two souls and pillars of the club, taking them with them on the field at every match.
Zebre Rugby Club's new United Rugby Championship home & away jerseys for the 2022-2023 competitive season were unveiled together with Macron, the federal franchise's technical partner. Both uniforms contain a strong message of sustainability and respect for the environment because they are made of Eco-Fabric, 100% polyester from recycled plastic.
