The rugby union clothing company, BLK, has teamed-up with DC Comics to create superhero jerseys for Pro12 clubs. On Wednesday, Ospreys unveiled their new Batman jerseys and Connacht showed off their new Green Lantern jerseys.
“We have a long and proud track record of using the phenomenal interest and demand in the Ospreys jersey in creative ways and this year, thanks to BLK’s licensing agreement with DC Comics, we have been able to take it a step further than ever before with this incredible Batjersey," said Ospreys CEO Andrew Hore. “It will be worn for two big derby matches, when the focus of Welsh rugby is firmly on the Ospreys, and then the match shirts will go towards helping good causes raise much needed funds. With the demand for Batman collectibles and the unique nature of the Batjersey, I have no doubt that the proceeds will go a long way towards making a big difference in the community in so many different ways. Everybody needs a super hero and in this instance, the Ospreys are the super heroes.”
