The 2020 Canterbury range has one very specific aim – to connect with the deep passion of fans. Jerseys aren’t just pieces of material that are used to show support for a team. They are a very real and visible way to actually be a part of the team you support.
Canterbury’s Licensed 2020 range reflects this notion by using genuine supporters, instead of players, to showcase this year’s jersey range. Whether you’re a Vodafone Warriors, NSW Blues, North Melbourne Football Club, or Black Caps fan, you can be sure to delight in this range and “Be Part of It”.
The Vodafone Warriors are a proud rugby league team. The theme of ‘inspire’ has been used as a starting base and added, in various ways, into the design of the 6 jerseys and the training range. Making the 2020 Vodafone Warriors range a statement piece for fans and players alike, both on and off the field.
To celebrate their 25th season, the Warriors jersey went back to the clubs’ roots. The jersey featured the clubs’ iconic foundation colours and were a real standout of the 2019 season. In 2020, the Warriors will run out during home games wearing a repeat of this jersey. However, in honour of a new season and therefore, new beginnings, the Warriors logo has been updated to feature the Warriors grey Tiki logo.
The 2020 away jersey is a way to honour, not only the Vodafone Warriors, but the proud sporting heritage of New Zealand. The away jersey will be black in colour and bold in design. This will ensure that whether the Warriors run out onto ANZ Stadium or Aami Park, opposition players and fans will be forced to remember where this team comes from and what they can achieve.
Also known as the Taua Tahi jersey, the Indigenous jersey is about representing the spiritual connection that binds people together as people of the land. Taua Tahi means ‘that’s us’ in Maori and will serve as a touching reminder that we are all equal. Additionally, in a new tribute, the jersey will pay respect to both the Tangata Whenua of New Zealand and the Aboriginal people of Australia.
This jersey is equal parts design and message. Representing strength and determination it’s a good message for fans and players alike that success in rugby league never comes easy. Along with an overwhelming drive to never give up- no matter the obstacles- this jersey represents the qualities fans love to see in their favourite football team.
Kiwi Bush Range
Coloured to represent and celebrate the Wellington and Taranaki regions, this jersey will feature when the Warriors hit the road to play in Wellington. Not like any other jersey before it, the Kiwi Bush Shirt is a take on New Zealand royalty with its checked design.
NRL Nines Kit
The Nines Mayhem jersey has been designed to symbolise the fun and vibrancy that the 9s event has become known for. Featuring street art and comic book-like designs, this jersey treats club icons as superpowers ready to do battle. This is fitting as everyone will want to emerge victorious at the 9s event.
Created using the Poutama design, the Warriors training range is all about using symbolism to inspire whoever chooses to wear it. The Poutama pattern signifies growth, striving ever upwards. This design element is a great way to motivate the players and any fans to achieve their goals.
In 2020 the NSW Blues will look to win the State of Origin series for the third time in a row. Such an effort always takes something remarkable and the range of supporter wear goes a long way towards helping the cause. Using the theme of ‘All Together’ the 2020 range is all about bonding the players and the state in order to make an unbeatable team.
For 2020, the home jersey has gone to another level. This bold new strip features a graphic layered chevron to be in keeping with the traditional navy and sky blues colours. To take NSW pride to another level, a NSW coat of arms will proudly sit across the chest of the jersey. Serving to remind players and fans alike of their proud heritage.
Taking inspiration from the iconic 1997 strip, when Canterbury first partnered with NSWRL, the alternate jersey harks back to the glory days of NSW football. By going back to the archives for the 2020 away strip, this jersey is able to respectively nod to the past, while also keeping an eye towards future success and dominance with its modern logos.
The Captain’s Run drill top perfectly embodies the core values of the NSW Blues. The front of the top features the native blue heeler. Fans will know that the blue heelers embody everything we hope our Origin team to be – loyal, strong and disciplined. The back of the shirt features the NSW landscape shown through the lens of the state sky blue. Nothing could be more passionately NSW than this top.
Taking inspiration from coach Brad Fittler’s unique training methods, the ‘Be Like Water’ training range takes on the theme of water being the matter of everything. Fittler uses water in his preferred training methods due to its calming effects on people. In the 2020 training range, water has been used in quite a similar fashion, with the design element adding a sense of calmness to the range.
North Melbourne Football Club
The North Melbourne Football Club (NMFC) is a historic and proud club. Their stripes, featuring royal and white has become iconic amongst the AFL competition. In 2020, instead of trying to recreate history and come up with something better, NMFC will play in an updated, yet traditional guernsey.
Known for the royal and white stripes, in 2020 the NMFC home guernsey aims to take tradition into the modern era. The infamous royal and white stripes will feature an updated bold and pinstriped detail. This subtle addition is an intricate feature that will compliment the guernsey perfectly.
The New Zealand men’s team is all about success. That’s why, a lot of the 2019 range has been used again in 2020. Expect to see the iconic fern taking pride of place and the use of the same colour black that so many New Zealand sporting teams have worn with great pride and success.
For 2020, the Black Caps ran a ‘Pick the Kit’ competition. The overwhelming winner was a retro shirt that reimagines the teal the team wore in the last 1990s.
