The Times They Are A Changin’
We’ve come along way since 1985, and it’s been an incredible journey. In 20 years of business in the GAA market the landscape is vastly changed from what it used to be. When we first started supplying county teams some of the only expectations were that the county colours were on full display, however as time has move forward, so have the expectations.
Gone are the days of teams demanding only Blue and White, or Red and Green, or simply any 2 colour combination. Not only does this show the respect the inter-county teams have for one another at this level but it also shows changing attitudes in the GAA, would this have been allowed or even considered 20 years ago?
As honored providers in the market it’s always fun to try new things beyond the traditional and create new jerseys or leisurewear items that break away from the norm. Take Waterford for example, traditionally the Deise go for the standard Navy and Royal combination for there Leisurewear range but last year have went for a sleeker Grey melange range accompanied with Sky Blue, not to mention the new range of Grey/Black Bobble hats.
Similarly many club teams now are starting to follow suit. Many clubs and teams are exploring completely different colour options other then their standard club colours, in order to achieve a more stylish look for their team. If teams are also lucky enough to have an away kit or an alternative training kit then these are also great options to try out new colours and design your own jersey style.
At Azzurri Sport we’re huge fans of county, club and school teams showcasing their chosen colours but also are fully supporting those who want to try something different. If you want a hands on experience you can visit our kitbuilder or just contact one of our sales team to design your own jersey or half zip even if you’d like something different from our current range. The GAA market is proving to be an ever changing and improving environment and it’s great to see the teams and supporters embracing these changes and going for new and exciting looks.
