Inspired by Swansea's famous Copper Works, and taking additional inspiration from looking at Copper under a microscope, we used these ideas for our graphic and put it into pride-esque colours and bitmap layers to pack an on-field colour punch.
Designed with Ospreys heritage and history in mind, the jersey pays homage to the teams that have played a key role in the development of Ospreys players, containing a colour from each of the 77 grassroots clubs.
As Ospreys journey across Europe in the Heineken Champions Cup, they will take a piece of their community with them, inclusive of all backgrounds and communities which make up their dedicated and united supporter base.
Since last season’s alternate kit, the four coloured dots on the nape of the jersey remain a staple, representing Ospreys’ semi-professional clubs of Swansea RFC, Neath RFC, Aberavon RFC, and Bridgend RFC.
In addition, Ospreys’ principal partner, Philtronics, showcased their roots by agreeing to redesign their logo to include elements of the Welsh flag and further publicise their connection to Manufacturing Wales. A sentiment shared by Ospreys as they develop current and future Welsh players.
