Puma splashed a classic blue on the Bulls 2021 kit, matching the shirt colour of the jersey the Blue Bulls wore when they beat the British & Irish Lions 35-30 at Loftus Versfeld during the 1997 tour.
The new 2021 Bulls HOME & AWAY kit will be in play until May 2022 and will be available from Puma.com, Puma, The Cross Trainer, Totalsports, Sportsmans Warehouse and selected retailers at a recommended retail price of R899 (men), R799 (women and kid sizes).
‘We decided on a jersey in a blue which matches that from the historic win and which will serve to reignite the same ‘97 passion,’ said Brett Bellinger, marketing director of Puma South Africa. ‘The #TrueToTheBlue jersey will be sported by the team in their first foray into Europe and during local competitions. It’s time to let the competitors know what it really means to have Blue Blood.’
Bulls CEO Edgar Rathbone said: “Puma have once again outdone themselves with an amazing jersey design, one that will resonate with all of our fans both from a historic perspective and with our newer audience. This also makes a bold statement as we venture into the northern hemisphere that no matter where we go or what we become the true essence of the Bulls will always remain BLUE.”
The new 2021 Bulls HOME & AWAY kits will be available in stores from 19 May, 2021.
