The new jersey of the “XV de France” revealed on October 30, 2018
The “XV de France” is about to start its autumn tour playing three games against South Africa, Argentina and Fiji. For this occasion, the French players will wear a brand-new jersey created and made by a new equipment manufacturer: @Le Coq Sportif.
The French Rugby Federation has chosen this French brand, which is more than a century old (founded in 1882 by the Camuset family), as it shares the same values as those defended by the @FFR and @Altrad: #respect, #solidarity, #courage, #humility, #conviviality.
In 2010, @Le Coq Sportif restarted its activity in Romilly sur Seine (near Paris, in France), cradle of the textile workshop where Émile Camuset used to make jerseys -more than 130 years ago- for his cycling, football and rugby friends.
Pride of the French rugby team, this new jersey, which is a hundred percent French in all respects - technology, manufacturing process, materials and labour force - benefits from the right “cotton/polyester fabric” mix, a specific blue colour created according to the requirements of the FFR - @Serge Simon said - and a “vibrant, almost magical shine” (as the teams, who have contributed to this jersey creation, often explain).
It is for the @Altrad group a great pride to be the first official jersey sponsor of the French national rugby team.
Allez la France, allez les Bleus ! We will always be with you, at all times!
