(UPDATED) PRO Rugby Unveils Team Jersey Designs, Colors


The jersey's for PRO Rugby's inaugural season have been released. In a release announcing a partnership between Champion System and PRO Rugby the colors and style of each jersey are out in the public for the first time. This season each individual city will not have a name other than the name of their system. This is done with the idea that over the first season fans will have a chance to give input into what they want their local team to be called.

Each jersey has a dominant color coupled with an accent. For San Francisco it's red and black, Denver it's purple and black. Sacramento it's white and green, San Diego has a fitting blue and white, and Ohio is grey and blue. Each team also has a design, whether it's a sash or lines on the jersey.

Take the jump to see all the jersey's and a press release.

  4. for everyone who complains about these designs take a second to chill. Remember this is just year 1, a trial year. of course the jerseys and design are going to be a bit plain and simple, why would the league and the company want to invest so much time and money in designs when in year 2 & 3 the teams will change them self's, in name or even color. a few years from now if they still look the same then yea I say let them hear your complaints and criticism.

    I personally like them for what they are, my vote for the SF team is Red Devils or the Demons as a nick name to be incorporated down the road. reminds me of Munster when I see there jerseys.

    1. Still... it would not have cost much money at all to have a nice looking generic team logo... such as "Ohio" with a rugby ball for an "O", or a stylized "SF", etc.

      Then they could have moved the ProRugby logo center chest like a sponsor. Some college kid would have gladly drawn up some logos for peanuts. Professionals who love rugby may have also. And shirts are sublimated so you'd pay for a one time fee for digitizing the artwork... not like traditional embroidery where you pay for digitizing and then another fee per article embroidered.

      Minimal time and money spent to make a decent jersey... even if they do change in a years time. I was just hoping to see a little more effort.

  5. I think they'd be better looking without the city names on them and i'm curious what the second jersey for San Francisco looks like since that's the team i'll be supporting.

    1. I agree, remove the city names and give a simple crest on the shoulders. Chest should be left empty for investors to imagine their logos.

    2. There's a photo of both San Fran jerseys...one is at the top of the article and the other is pretty much just reverse colors.

  6. I hope that this is a first draft. I know they're on a budget, but they can surely do better.

  7. A shame, especially given the high standard of the CCC jerseys in Pacific Rugby... the new "major league" looks worse than the minor league.

  8. These jerseys are hideous! Have the designers never seen a rugby jersey before? Here come the San Francisco San Franciscans wearing an old Tour de France uniform! Terrible
