The new DHL Stormers 2023/24 home and away jersey has been revealed and is on sale now from the official online store.
Inspired by the passion of the DHL Stormers’ Faithful fans, the new designs reflect how integral supporters are to the team and our success in the upcoming 2023/24 campaign.
The new home and away replica jerseys are on sale now from stormersshop.co.za and blksport.co.za and will be available at all major retailers in the coming weeks as we build up to the new season, which kicks off in late October.
The 2023/24 home jersey features a striking design, which references the team’s unique ‘DNA’, running through players, coaches and supporters while keeping the established heritage of our blue and white hoops.
Each molecule that binds our DNA helix features our unique genetic code with the ‘number plate’ codes of various municipalities of the Western Cape, underlining how the DHL Stormers are a team that play for the rugby-loving communities of the region. That is what binds us, that is what brings us together, that’s our DNA.
The passion that the DHL Stormers Faithful have for their team is unrivalled and the DNA strands on the jersey underline how central they are to the identity of the DHL Stormers and their mission to ‘Make Cape Town Smile’.
The 2023/24 away jersey is a vibrant design, which calls to mind colourful icons of the Cape Town landscape such as the Bo Kaap houses and Muizenberg beach huts. The jersey also features a silhouette of DHL Stadium on the back, indicating that the team will take the colour and unwavering support of the Faithful with them wherever they may play in the Vodacom United Rugby Championship and Investec Champions Cup this season. We know that wherever we may play our city and our faithful fans are right there with us.
The DHL Stormers Faithful are an incredibly diverse group of supporters whose colourful character serves as inspiration for the design, along with the natural beauty of the Western Cape and Cape Town as a city.
The DHL Stormers home and away match jerseys are made of Exotek, which is a premium polyester spandex sublimation fabric with maximum stretch and recovery capabilities. The considerable burst strength of the fabric makes it perfect for rugby performance.
DHL Stormers Head Coach John Dobson said the new jerseys speak directly to what will drive his squad as they take on another demanding campaign.
“We often speak of the rugby DNA of this region and our team. We try and play a brand of rugby that resonates with the people who support us, as a team we are a reflection of our incredibly diverse and passionate fanbase and these jerseys capture that connection perfectly,” he said.
DHL Stormers captain Salmaan Moerat said that the team is looking forward to getting to work in the new jerseys when the season gets underway.
“We know who we play for and what we represent, that will always make playing for the DHL Stormers more than just another rugby team.
“There has been a lot of hard work that has gone in to prepare the team for another tough season and we cannot wait to pull these new jerseys on for the first time and start performing for our fans,” he said.
