Cork launch new jersey
The Cork hurlers and footballers will be in a new jersey next year.
Cork GAA – in partnership with Sports Direct and O’Neills – has unveiled its new home jersey for the 2023 and 2024 season.
The new jersey incorporates a number of new features that resonate with classic jerseys from a different era. The white neck collar returns, while extra white elements have been restored to the sleeves.
The three lines on the white sleeve represent the three pillars of Cork GAA – club, school, and county. The corresponding stylish white shorts offer the same pattern in reverse.
Features from the Cork GAA logo have been subtly added to the back of the jersey, featuring Shandon Bells with Queen’s Old Castle and King’s Old Castle on either side, and Bandon Bridge to the foreground.
The Number 1 jersey will be a throw-back to the 1990s, with a dramatic return of the red and white stripes worn by the goalkeepers on the All Ireland double winning team.
Marc Sheehan, Chairperson Cork GAA, said, “Our partnership with Sports Direct has really borne dividends in the past two years, and we really look forward to seeing this new design on the pitches and in the stands when the league and championship begin in earnest in 2023.”
Kevin O’Donovan, CEO Cork GAA, said “Cork fans are tremendously proud of their jerseys, and we hope that this year’s design will join the list of classics worn by the Rebels over the decades. The design has been carefully crafted by O’Neills to incorporate the best elements of jerseys from times past, and we are particularly proud of the return of an iconic goalkeeper design. We look forward to seeing our teams succeed in this new jersey.”
