The new Ireland football jersey has finally been revealed
The FAI have revealed the brand new Ireland jersey for the upcoming Euro 2024 campaign with new supplier Castore.
The kit features Ireland's brand new crest, which was revealed last earlier this month in a rebrand of the badge which had been in place since 2004.
The jersey contains thin white and orange vertical strips with a white and orange trim on the collar and cuffs. There's also the word 'Éire' printed on the reverse of the jersey.
The new Ireland home kit will be available to pre-order from www.shop.irelandfootball.ie on Monday, March 20.
FAI CEO Jonathan Hill said, “This is an exciting time for the Association as we announce a new kit partner, a new shirt and a new crest for our international teams. In Castore we believe we have found an ambitious and forward-looking partner who share our desire to move forward confidently and positively into a new era for the FAI and Irish football.
"Importantly, this is a significant commercial deal for the Association which helps us in our core strategic objective of creating a more stable financial base for the business and for the game as a whole.”
The FAI is proud to launch our new Ireland National Team home kit.
Developed with Castore, our new kit celebrates our colours and honours the history of our jersey, whilst ensuring it has a modern look for today's game.

The partnership with Castore was announced on March 13, with Founder Tom Beahon saying: "We are extraordinarily proud that Castore will have the honour of producing the iconic Ireland jersey until 2028 and we fully understand the responsibility we have to carry on that tradition and history.
"Along with our financial commitment to the FAI, we will invest significantly into the FAI’s e-commerce infrastructure, providing a best-in-class online shop for Ireland fans home and abroad and will align with the FAI’s strategic ambition to embrace digital technologies to better connect with all fans.”
Castore supplies the kits for Newcastle, Aston Villa and Wolves in the Premier League.
They also supply the kits for Rangers.
The Glasgow club's fourth kit appears to have a similar template to the Ireland kit, albeit in different colours.
