The Hoops are Back!

1 August 2013

The suspense is over, and Bath Rugby can now confirm a return to its historic hooped jersey for the 2013/2014 playing jersey.

For generations, Bath's players and supporters have swathed themselves in the famous Blue, Black and White hoops synonymous with the Club, and the Rec looks set to become a hooped fortress once more.

The Club are delighted to welcome on board Tri Distribution as the Official Kit Supplier, and producers of the 2013/14 kit. Tri Distribution work with several apparel brands, and are the manufacturers of both the RFU and SA Rugby's casual wear range.

Speaking of the return to the famous hooped jersey, Bath Chief Executive Nick Blofeld said: "We are very pleased to be back in the Blue, Black and White hoops. The supporters love them, and so do the players, and we are delighted to be working with Tri Distribution for this season. We decided not to use an Official Kit Sponsor as, despite having a variety of options, we wanted to really own our jersey and to have absolute control over the kit we offered our supporters."

The new shirt will be available in store and online from Saturday 17th August, but you can pre-order your shirt now either at, by calling 01225 311950, or by popping into the Bath Rugby Shop on Argyle Street.
