We are delighted to present our new home jersey for the 2017 SSE Airtricity League season.
The jersey pays homage to the famous Galway hooker, an internationally recognised symbol of the city and county of Galway.
The creator of the design, Morgan O’Brien, explained the process and inspirations involved in bringing the design to life.
- The subtle pinstripe inspired directly by the intricately stitched burgundy sails of Galway Hookers.
- The Galway Hooker silhouette below the collar, an internationally recognised symbol for the city and county of Galway.
- The bold horizontal white and black stripes which recreate the distinctive look of the striped black tarred hull when coupled with black playing shorts.
- The final detail, the text Spioraid Na Gaillimhe on the hem of the shirt. The spirit of the people of Galway city and county is unrivalled and the key to our success as one of the most friendly and culturally diverse places in the world to live and visit.
The jersey will officially be launched and sold for the first time at 2.00pm on Saturday, 10th December, from the Galway United store located in the upper floor of the Eyre Square Centre, opposite Carphone Warehouse. Galway United players and club mascot Terry The Tiger will be present at the launch to meet and greet with supporters.
Galway United stars Vinny Faherty, Colm and Stephen Folan are modelling our new home jersey, which is supplied by uhlsport.
