DRAGONS and kit partners VX3 have today revealed the region’s striking new home kit for the 2020/21 season – with the latest evolution of the popular black jersey.

The club says that the design takes inspiration from the industries and heritage that helped shape Gwent.

The new home kit is a stylish black design with new grey tones which have also introduced this season.

Headline sponsors Compeed sit proudly on the side panels of the jersey while new front of shirt sponsors, Doom Bar, are emblazoned across the chest.

The kit features an eye-catching mix of blacks and greys - as the club continue to "pay homage to our proud past, when collieries and steel mills across the region were central to the supply of steel, iron and coal during the Industrial Revolution".


"Our inspirational heroes in the NHS are also celebrated with every jersey carrying the message ‘Diolch NHS’ while all junior kits feature this message across the front," said the club on their website.

First team stars Ashton Hewitt, Ross Moriarty, Aaron Wainwright, Rhodri Williams, Leon Brown, Ollie Griffiths, Elliot Dee and Jamie Roberts are among the first to try on the kit this week.

They were joined by Newport-born Wales international Cerys Hale, members of the club's inclusion teams – from the Dragons Allstars and Dragons Wheelchair teams – plus junior fans.

Other sponsors to feature on the new kit are Bisley, Building Management Solutions, Dragon Studios, iac, iStadiaSolutions, CRX, Coleg QS, Inter-haul, Harlequin, GOS Engineering, General Dynamics, GP Shipping, SFI, Hopkins Machinery, MBS, Niche IFA, Shadow Scaffolding, Valley Water Services, Valley Tavern and Worthington’s, plus VX3.

Black shorts and socks complete the new design, that will be worn for the first time when Dragons host Zebre in the Guinness PRO14 at Rodney Parade next week.

The new home kit is available to pre-order now.
