2023 Warriors Jerseys and Merchandise

With other clubs starting to release their 2023 jerseys its time to start this thread up in hopes the Warriors release theirs soon or by some miracle someone leaks them. Been a while since we seen some leaked images.

Will be interesting to see if the replicas had enough time to get the new One logo. Jersey production usually starts from October with delivery in mid December. From what I've been told the players jerseys will definitely have them plastered across their chest. I'm guessing the Warriors will be a key part of the new identity roll out.

Will be interesting to see if Puma also go with the 2003 home or away jerseys as heritage jerseys being its 20th anniversary.

Whatever happens Puma had better not have the same lazy approach to our kit as they did in 2022 with the mismatched shorts and socks...

From what I've heard the club has been well across the re-branding for a while. Whether or not that allowed them enough time to get the new logo on the jerseys is another matter. We may end up with either a bunch on sponsorless jerseys like we saw with a lot of the Super Rugby Teams, or a big laminated print slapped on the front.

As for the Heritage, surely has to be the 2003 jersey! Another great season that deserves to be recognized.

My first Warriors jersey was a 2003. Bring it back for sure.

Agreed Mt Wellington, hated the shorts and jersey mismatch we had going on. Can't say I like the One logo, we're gonna look like Iron man.

Lads/Lasses hello, do we know when the jerseys will be refreshed or launched? Are we expecting a complete redesign or just the One logo update? Cheers.

I would imagine we would have a completely new design for 2023. Clubs seem to be locked into a 2 year design cycle these days. We switched from CCC to Puma halfway through that cycle, but the design was very similar, with the obvious curved chevrons to straight chevrons. I think the change in manufacturer allows a small deviation in design as long as it's largely similar.

Really, I would have thought the 2 year cycle restarted once supplier changed?

Not too bothered either way really, this years kit is pretty well up there in terms of my favourite jerseys we have put out but Puma seems to play it pretty safe (looking at the kits they have with S.O.O, Football and AFL), so a change would be a welcome one for me.

It would be good to get something stable. 2021 changing the colour above the V from white to blue was an improvement. This season changing to the straight V seems to complete things.

We have had the colour scheme change from blue to black and back to blue again. But it seemed like we hit something we could stick with as our identity.

I know stable doesn't sell a lot of jerseys. There would be some purchases due to people cycling around to it or due to the new sponsor.

I'd also argue winning sells more jerseys. Look at 2011 the stores were sold out of Warriors gear.

Someone posted on one of the other threads that one of the reasons for no pre-season photos could be Puma not wanting old gear shown or Vodafone/One NZ not wanting the old log out there.

My wife works in marketing and this is the type of thing they'd put the breaks on.

Puma - It would still be Puma gear and in the past we have had years where they start the pre-season in old gear and change when it arrives. I'd suggest these years there could of been some old sponsors on the training shirts. The main sponsor being different would be more of an issue.

One NZ - They are supposed to be changing their name in 2023. I know the advertising has started but still officially 2023. I haven't looked at the Vodafone building I ride past closely but I'm sure that still has the old logo.

These companies invest a lot of money so branding and sales for the new shirts mean a lot to them. But a few weeks of photos in the wrong gear isn't going to be a huge deal. Everyone only looks at the recent photos so the ones from the start of pre-season will be forgotten.

This is the Warriors we are talking about. If the media guy is away with the Kiwi's he's probably taken the official camera with them or he's the only one allowed to take photos. I know other people can take photos and people walk around every day with devices that can take photos. But like the previous point companies are weird and make strange decisions or don't see common sense.

This year yet?

Meh a little generic. Colour shades don’t seem to match shades of previous seasons. Kinda like just doing a ‘blue, red, green and white’ colour way of an existing template and not bothering to see if they were right
