Jozi ‘backs’ the new Emirates Lions 2018 VSR jersey

The Lions Rugby Company (Pty) Ltd and Canterbury are proud to reveal the new strip for the 2018 Vodacom Super Rugby campaign.

 “The new jersey is a blend of traditional and modern with red and white hoops on the front and a modern design at the back which will again include the Johannesburg skyline, arguably the most beautiful skyline in South Africa.

 “We are very proud to be associated with the City of Johannesburg and we know they have our ‘backs’ so to speak,” said Edgar Rathbone, Managing Director of EPS Management.

Rudolf Straeuli, CEO Lions Rugby Company (Pty) Ltd, thanked Canterbury for designing a state of the art jersey, not only in design, but also remaining innovative within the industry. “It is fantastic that we have kept our relationship with our sponsors that sees the jersey sponsors unchanged.

 “We are proud to announce that the jersey sponsors backing the 2018 Emirates Lions team are Emirates, Xerox, Bidvest, Canterbury, Jonsson Workwear, Fidelity-ADT, Hisense, 947 and Vox and we thank them for their continued support of Lions rugby,” Straeuli said.

The jersey will again sport the Autism Blue Number on the back in support of the Els for Autism Foundation.

The new Emirates Lions jersey will be on and most sport stores from the 8th of December.
