Brydens Lawyers NSW Blues trendsetting wingers Brian To’o and Josh Addo-Carr have endorsed the team’s new-look PUMA kit for 2022, which will see them back in the traditional all sky blue jersey, with no chevron, to mark their Ampol State of Origin Series homecoming that has been 574 days in the making.
The Brydens Lawyers NSW Blues today unveiled the heritage-style PUMA sky blue jersey that will feature across all three games, kicking off with their return to the Blues home ground at Accor Stadium, Sydney Olympic Park, on Wednesday 8 June, their first appearance in Sydney since 11 November 2020 for Game Three of the 2020 State of Origin Series.
NSW Rugby League Chief Commercial Officer Jodie Cross said the organisation was thrilled to have such strong support from commercial partners for one of the most recognisable and iconic sporting brands in the country.
“It’s so exciting not only to be going to back to our heritage with a modern take on the traditional all sky blue jersey, but to be back in Sydney to our fans, many of whom have not had the chance to watch their team for nearly two years because of COVID related issues,” she said.
“What a great homecoming for our loyal Blatchys supporters to get to open the series at our home ground at Accor Stadium. It is so good to be back.”
General Manager of PUMA Oceania Pancho Gutstein said: “We are delighted with the 2022 NSW Blues jersey and that it is back to the heritage all sky blue design. This is fitting as the team will be back in NSW playing in front of their home fans for Game One of the 2022 series”.
PUMA has been a global leader in athletic apparel and footwear since 1948 and partners some of the biggest sporting names and clubs across the globe including the Brydens Lawyers NSW Blues, Manchester City, footballer Neymar Jr, Ferrari, cricketer Virat Kohli, golfer Rickie Fowler and NBA star LaMelo Ball.
Like last year’s winning NSW jersey, it incorporates dryCELL moisture-controlling technology, which is a highly functional material that draws sweat away from skin and allows players to stay on top of their game.
NSW scored an historic 2-1 series win over Queensland in last year’s Ampol State of Origin Shield, after all three games were played in Queensland because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Blues will be hoping to see a sea of blue at Accor Stadium when they return home for the opening game of the series in June.
