New Jerseys Launched
Our launch event for the new range of Sligo Rovers jerseys from Joma was held today in the Clarion hotel.
The new home jersey is in familiar Rovers red with a white shoulder and white shorts and socks.
Rovers will revert a white away jersey in 2016 with a Bit o’Red trim.
A third jersey has also been introduced in navy blue.
We also launched three kits to be worn by our goalkeeping duo of Micheal Schlingermann and Ciaran Nugent.

The home jersey will go on sale from next Wednesday at our game against Liverpool under-21s and from our club store thereafter. The Liverpool game will also see the jersey wore for the very first time.
The away and third kits will go on sale shortly after. The price of all is a reduced €45 for adults and €35 for kids.
We were delighted to welcome representatives from Joma over to the event and would also like to thanks the Clarion hotel for hosting.
The new Sligo Rovers jerseys are designed with DRY MX. This is a unique fabric technology that keep the body dry and comfortable by drawing sweat away from the skin thus reducing cling from perspiration whilst still the allowing air to circulate. This allows the body to stay dry and comfortable during high level sports performance and exercise.
