Melbourne Storm has continued their momentum of announcements leading into the 2018 pre-season with the reveal of next year’s away jersey.
Following the unveiling of the home jersey on Wednesday, the away jersey is another tribute to the past with the Club’s iconic lightning bolts watermarked on the front of the jersey.
The heritage colour of navy also features on the all white jersey, with horizontal stripes running across the bolts. Purple appears around the edging of the sleeves, identical to the home jersey.
Inspiration for both the home and away kits, designed in collaboration with apparel partner ISC, has been drawn from two decades of proud history, with both strips forming a key element of Storm’s 20 year celebrations.
This 2018 jerseys are available now to be pre-ordered from the Club’s online merchandise store. Members also receive 10 per cent off the purchase of both jerseys.
This week has also seen Storm unveil a new logo to commemorate the milestone season. This logo symbolises an acknowledgement of the past as well as the beginning of a new and exciting chapter.
Storm CEO Dave Donaghy said the Club was excited to have the 2018 jerseys showcase a year-long acknowledgement of the 20 year history.
“The away jersey is a further tribute to the formative years of Melbourne Storm.
“We are excited to see the lightning bolts return to the Storm jersey. The prominence of the navy and purple for both the away and home kits will ensure our heritage is proudly celebrated each time our players take the field in 2018.”
