A relatively new, and diversified brand. It is interesting to get in on the ground level with them, and how this develops, especially as other teams/clubs will continue to join the platform.

Other football clubs fans have had nothing but bad things to say about them, from the quality of the merchandise to the customer service

They're shocking. Have had nothing but bad experiences with them buying Newcastle stuff. They take an age to fulfil orders. When they eventually do it's usually faulty and they have terribe customer service.

You can bet this kit release was pushed back to the 20th because of their shoddy supply chain. Kit being shown two days before the first match, missing St. Patrick's day and the team wearing the kit against France with not a single person in the crowd weraing the new jersey.

Wait until everyone sees the extortionate prices they charge for their tat too. Will be fun!

I think I'll pass on the €86 jerseys that are really poor quality. 

Very few people will be buying

The FAI needs money so were always going to go for the most lucrative deal. I am interested to see how it will look with the new crest etc.

Unfortunately this is the reality of the situation. I heard through the grapevine that Puma made an early play with an offer that was more than the expiring umbro deal so it was being seriously considered by the powers that be in Abbotstown.

Castore subsequently came in and basically blew this offer out of the water by almost double. Given the lack of a lead sponsor and the horrific financial situation as a whole, The FAI commercially would have been foolish to turn it down.

I'll reserve judgement until I see the final product but the feedback from fans of their existing clubs isn't exactly positive.  And there is no chance I'll be paying €90 for a jersey

I understand that & financial situation is driving the decision. But sometimes going for the higher initial figure isn’t the best long term decision

I agree, but this is a little different. Castore sponsor a few teams that would be known to us. Rangers were the first to have them that I know and took a lot of sl*gging about the quality etc. Umbro/Addias/Nike practically monopolised the kit manufacturers.

I think people exaggerate on Castore. They are linking up with some big clubs so they cannot be as bad as people say. Lets wait and see the jersey. I assume it will be along lines of other jerseys they have with other clubs. Could be the round neck like Newcastle or a more v neck type like Sevilla. Not made on their logo design myself but the jerseys over the last while have been bland. Away orange one lately was quite nice though. Might look ok.

Having just seen the teaser on Facebook (the one about the Pre-order), I have to say, I think this is gonna be a gorgeous jersey.   The castore logo and the new Ireland crest sit really well side by side.  If that Specific shade of green can be perfectly replicated in the actual shirt, then I’m in love

Start saving up some cash or wait for the inevitable summer sale next year. Guts of €70 for a t-shirt and €50 for a pair of shorts if the Newcastle gear is an indicator for the pricing. They seem to like placing emphasis on them being a “premium” sportswear brand.

I would be guessing it will be 80-90 euro, they are charging £75 for new home kits for uk teams

Imagine being wound up over a kit supplier because they also supply the kit of a club team you don’t like. As was said yesterday, this isn’t the first time both teams have had the same supplier.

Social Media gives a voice to the eejits, and you never have to go far to find them spewing nonsense.
This is yet another example, if any more were needed.

“Pre order from the 20th”, meaning it won’t actually go on sale until later, possibly much later. You’d think it would be in the shops by Monday in time for everyone to buy it before the Latvia and France games. But no.

That does look brutal. The jersey or whatever piece of gear would want to be the same colour as the badge now.

Looks like aer lingus jacket or something. The colour of the crest clashes with the darker green.

Is that actually the first official released pic? The kit looks terrible. They are also wearing tops a size too big as well.

Hope the one in the middle is the fan version of the jacket and that the Sky crest didn't just fall off. Knowing Castore though and other teams having crests fall off players kits it probably did fall off.

Looks like a rushed job for the parade. The crest is centered with the Castore logo on the jacket in the middle, whereas the others are off as they have the Sky logo too

I bet the FAI are sweating buckets tonight in anticipation of the backlash.

Look the talk is they got a ball of money for this. The only losers out of this if the gear is sh*te and overpriced is Castore. If we got big money, so be it. Next time though I would love to see us go with O'Neills. But that's just personal taste. Money talks

Wow some design though went into that. I had a feeljng that crest wouldn't look good on a jersey. The slanted shamrock was a bad idea. Bland as fook

But even before the FAI announce it? Seems daft. Can hardly have a big reveal now

Look pretty much the same as the Umbro 2021 centenary Home shirt with some pin stripes like O'Neills used on the in the early 80s and the new badge.

Its not awful.

Seen a comparison with rangers 2022 fourth strip.

Design is identical.

Expected a lot worse. It’s more so the crest that looks terrible than the jersey

If this is it, it’s quite nice actually. Subtle. A real grower .  Small stripes obviously a retro feel . A sense of less is more. A trendy shirt too; tasty with a pair of jeans and nice gutties!   Although the likeness with the Rangers away shirt above is quite amusing

Looks great and a safe bet designwise. Crest let's it down though.

Similar design to one of the retro o Neils jerseys, I will say as par usual shall wait until I see it in person before dismissing it fully
