Dublin's new GAA jersey includes new collar and sleeve designs
These should prove popular with fans of The Dubs.
Could this be the GAA jersey Dublin are wearing when they claim their fifth All-Ireland in a row?
Between the Sam Maguire being lifted at Croke Park and Christmas is usually prime time for new GAA jerseys to drop.
Mayo have already released their 2019 home kit and it is strikingly similar to Kerry's 2018 offering. The Kingdom's home jersey was so beautiful, this year, that it would almost be a crime to change it. Still, new jerseys generate money into the county board coffers so expect a tweak to that.
Cork are expected to release their 2019 kits in the coming weeks after their sponsorship deal with Chill Insurance was extended until 2020. As for the All-Ireland champions, they have dropped their new home kit for all four senior teams.
Navy is back
The Dubs' new O'Neills jersey has three major changes from their 2018 effort:
- Navy collar (replacing the all-white number)
- Three stripes ending at the shoulder (rather than extending the entire sleeve)
- Navy dimpled design on the sleeves
There is a significant change to the shorts too, with light blue dimples infusing the bottom of the primarily navy look.
Here is the image O'Neills put out of the new kit on Thursday morning:

The jersey will be available in stores from 2pm on Friday. For those that can't wait, there is a pre-order option from Elverys. If you get in your pre-order by 2pm today, the fresh kit should reach you by Friday morning.
