New Donegal Jersey for 2018?

(Oldest Posts First)

Just a quick random question if any one knows if there will be a new jersey for the 2018 season?

I am not 100% positive but I think there will be a new jersey for 2018. They normally change the jersey every 2 years.

Really hope they have it in time for Christmas. Would be less hassle for me if it was. Ideal Xmas present

i belive o'neills change it every 3 years for most teams (unless they get a new sponsor) whereas azzurri change it every 2 years so there was a new one in 2010, 2012, 2014 and 2016 (because kn became sponsor) so i would expect a new one in 2019.

I think u are right. The previous O'Neill's jersey was 3 years then a change . There is new training gear out I have seen. Looks great too.

I think the O'Neill's cycle is typically two years. We had our first O'Neill's jersey in 2014 and 2015, and our second (current) one in 2016 and 2017.
Other than Tyrone, who have had their current one for three years, I can't think of another top county who have had theirs longer than two years.
Mayo, Dublin, Galway, Cork, Kerry, Kilkenny all had their previous jerseys for two years before changing.

I doubt they would do it, but I would love for one year, or maybe just a game or two, to bring back a throwback to the green jersey/gold hoop jersey that we had for our 1983, 1990 and 1992. I wouldn't want to permanently go back to it, but it would be nice to see it worn again at some stage.

I love the 1983 jersey, would be great if went back to one like that.

CLG Dhun na nGall in partnership with O'Neills Irish International Sports Co.Ltd are delighted to formally announce that a new Donegal home jersey design will be launched very soon and will be available to purchase online and from usual retailers in early December. This will be followed then in January by an updated away jersey design prior to the start of the Allianz Football & Hurling Leagues. Further details and a preview of the new home jersey will follow in the coming weeks.

Hope the quality improves
The current one is so thin you could spit through it

Think it would be great for clubs/ counties to negotiate their own deal with suppliers

I know of the ruling that of GAA insisting that all county jerseys must be Irish made but with jerseys costing £50 how much do the counties / clubs get from that?

Just heard a snippet of an interview with Sean Dunnion there on Ocean FM. The jersey will be unveiled on Monday (December 11th) at the Abbey Hotel, and will go on sale later in the week.
I see Michael Murphy Sports & Leisure are having an event on Friday, December 15th doing a signing of the new jersey, so I'm guessing the 15th is the day it probably goes on sale.

How is the profits from the jersey shared out.MM sports seem to be like an extension of the county board.

Love the new jersey I must say esp the 3 stripes going into the green sleeves. I was watching the launch video and Cieren Kelly makes reference to the 3 stripes. How do O'Neill's get away with that?

Adidas did sue O'Neill's back in the 1980s. The Irish court sided with O'Neill's, so O'Neill's are allowed to use the three stripes design in the 32 counties on the island of Ireland, but must use a 2 stripe design abroad, as Adidas hold the rights for the rest of the world. If you look at any of the jerseys clubs use in Great Britain, the USA and Canada, (even the New York inter-county team), or in the Middle East, or in Australia, they all have the two stripe design.
Also, I'm in New York, and if I want to order the Donegal jersey online, they will sell me a two striped version of the version that is being sold in Ireland.
