Images of the new Republic of Ireland jersey – due to be released in September – have been leaked by Footyheadlines.com.
The jerseys are sponsored by New Balance, who have taken over from Umbro as the official kit sponsors for the boys in green.
New Balance sponsor several teams such as Liverpool, Celtic, and Shamrock Rovers, and the deal with the FAI includes the full kit, training apparel and equipment for the Ireland men’s, women’s and underage sides.
The supposed new jerseys feature a rounded collar, orange trim and the New Balance symbol on the right breast of the jersey.
Martin O’Neill’s men will wear the new jerseys – which will be publicly unveiled in the near future – in the crucial upcoming Group D World Cup qualifiers against Georgia and Serbia.
However, many fans took to social media to voice their displeasure with the new design.
