Leicester Tigers and official kit suppliers Canterbury unveiled the new 2014/15 home shirt to supporters at Welford Road's Open Day.

The new shirt features an ‘evergreen’ base with green contrast hoops and thin bands of bright white and formula one red. It will be worn with green shorts and green socks.
Tigers players Manu Tuilagi, Owen Williams, Anthony Allen and Jordan Crane paraded the kit after it was revealed at Saturday’s Open Day when supporters were given their first opportunity to see what the team will be wearing when the new campaign opens on September 6.
Canterbury have had considerable input from professional players in designing the new playing shirt which is designed to be worn tight while allowing flexibility, movement and comfort.
The new Tigers shirt is engineered using Canterbury’s latest high-performance fabric, delivering optimum strength and moisture management for a lightweight and comfortable feel. The new collar is an evolution of Canterbury’s signature Loop 21 neckline and developed for enhanced durability. Triple-bar tacks are configured to increase the strength of the shirt at the usual vulnerable areas, vastly reducing the risk of rips and tears, side seams have been brought to the back to reduce the stress point of seam breakage and the cuffs are constructed from a Nylon/Spandex blend which ensure a streamlined fit.
Canterbury will again in the Test, Pro and Classic replica versions for supporters.
The new Leicester home shirt is available to pre-order now at the club store and online at www.leicestertigers.com
The new Leicester Tigers alternate jersey will be a launched later in August.
