The BaaBaas will have a fresh new look out on the pitch this year, thanks to the launch of a new game set and training jersey for 2024.

Coming hot on the heels of the announcement of a partnership agreement between Barbarian FC and Macron, the new kit will be worn for all matches in 2024, starting with the Kilik Cup fixture against Fiji on 22 June at Twickenham Stadium.

The club’s traditional black and white hoops are enhanced by the attention to detail, style and design that have made Macron the leading kit supplier for the rugby world. In addition to representing the amazing history and symbols of Barbarian F.C., the new shirts also convey a clear message of sustainability. The 2024 kit is made from Eco Fabric, a polyester material derived entirely from recycled plastic, demonstrating the environmental commitment of both club and technical sponsor, as well as the garments’ excellent quality and advanced technology.

The Barbarians new shirts maintain the iconic black and white hoops design not only on the bodies but on the shoulders and sleeves too, featuring a tone on tone geometric wave pattern in the black parts. The shirt has a polo neck with the traditional two-button closure. The inside of the neck and the sleeve cuffs are embellished with fine black and white pinstripes. The inside neck label features the Barbarian F.C. badge, the Macron logo and the words ‘Designed in Bologna’, certifying that the garment is conceived, designed and developed at Macron’s Headquarters.

Another characteristic of this new Barbarians game set are the words ‘FLAIR – COURAGE – SPIRIT – PASSION’ that embellish both sleeves along with the club badge. The badge graphic also appears in embossed form at the bottom of the shirt back. The new kit is available in a Player body fit version and in a Supporters Replica fit, as well as in the usual short and long sleeve Cotton Replica. The shorts are in total black.  

Along with the game set, the club also presented a training jersey, again featuring the traditional Barbarians hoops but in a highly innovative form. The black base is combined with a modern graphic composed of irregular neon pink and light blue brush strokes, the same colours that are also present on the V neck and sleeve cuffs.

Both match shirt and training jersey are made from Eco Fabric, and more specifically from Eco Armevo with in Eco Boditex inserts, materials that ensure lightness, breathability and maximum strength.
