How To Choose The Right Rugby Jersey Fabric

How to choose the right rugby jersey fabric

Rugby(American football)is one of the most popular sports in North America. There is a huge demand for rugby apparel in North America and it is a major product line for many sportswear manufacturers. It is important to select the right fabric for your rugby jersey.

Typically a rugby jersey usually has several requirements:

Durability: Rugby is a sport of intense physical confrontation and a rugby jersey needs to be durable enough to withstand frequent contact and pulling to ensure the safety of the player and the long-term use of the clothing.

Protection: The rugby jersey should provide certain protection, particularly in key areas such as the shoulders, chest, hips and thighs. These areas are often equipped with extra padding or stuffing to mitigate damage to the body in the event of knocks and falls.

Fitting: A rugby jersey should fit the player’s body to ensure flexibility and comfort. Jerseys that are too over or undersized may restrict an athlete’s ability to move and affect their performance. Therefore, rugby jerseys are often offered in a variety of sizing options to accommodate athletes of different sizes.

Breathability: As rugby is a high intensity sport, with players sweating during the game, rugby shirts need to be breathable to help regulate body temperature and keep players dry.

Legibility: Rugby shirts often have distinctive colours and patterns to differentiate between teams and players. This helps referees, teammates and spectators to identify the position and team of the player.
