Emirates World Rugby Match Officials Macron Kit Revealed For RWC 2023
World Rugby and Macron unveiled the designs of the eco-considerate jerseys that all match officials will wear at Rugby World Cup 2023.
With three weeks to go until RWC 2023 gets underway in France and the match official kits will be available for fan purchase. The kit is meant to include “Macron’s latest technological advancements with a material made entirely from recycled plastic.”
The Emirates World Rugby Match Officials kit marks a milestone in the initial three-year deal between the World Rugby and the Italian sportswear manufacturer which was signed in 2022.
The jerseys are available in three designs – white, yellow and navy blue (with navy blue shorts and socks). World Rugby added that “the kit combinations are colour vision deficiency friendly and have been chosen to avoid kit clashes at the sport’s showcase event.”
World Rugby High-Performance 15s Match Officials Manager Joël Jutge said: “Our partnership with Macron is based on a shared mission and vision of excellence on and off the field. It is an important area of our preparation and pivotal to enabling our team to perform to its full potential at Rugby World Cup 2023.
“In addition to technical attention to detail, we are delighted that a respect of the environment and inclusivity is at the heart of the design. We are also excited to be making the kit available for fans and hope to inspire future generations of match officials.”
