The Western Force today reveals the club’s home and away jerseys for the 2024 Super Rugby Pacific and Super Rugby Women’s seasons in partnership with Dynasty Sport.
The 2024 playing jerseys feature a fresh new design, including an Indigenous design showing the Derbal Yerrigan (Swan River) and the swirls in the water caused by the Fighting Maali (black swan) which appears on both front and back. The 2024 jerseys also feature a more pronounced chevron on both home and away strips.
The away jersey features the state’s iconic black and gold colour scheme, harking back to Perth/Western Gold and upholding the heritage and tradition of rugby in WA.
Nyoongar artist Darryl Bellotti's design ensures the Force represents WA's proud indigenous heritage.
The jerseys have apparel partner Dynasty Sport’s cutting edge Ecotek fabric, which is made from ethically sourced recycled plastic bottles.
One of the key features is a gel grip Fighting Maali print over the chest. The Fighting Maali represents the fighting spirit of the team – an attacking black swan – and it is a metaphor for the Club’s Sea of Blue fans rising up.
Force acting CEO Niamh O’Connor said: “The 2024 playing jerseys offer a slick design which we feel our fans, the Sea of Blue, will connect with. The feedback from our players about the playing and training wear already has been overwhelmingly positive.
“Seeing the jerseys up close, the subtle layers of the Derbal Yerrigan and the Fighting Maali are a perfect symbol that connects the Force to culture, country and place, representing both the strength of our native First Nations peoples and the fighting spirit of the team.
“We’re proud to wear our state’s traditional black and gold colours on our away jersey, given WA’s long history and connection with the game.”
