The 2023/24 home jersey features a striking design, which references the team’s unique ‘DNA’, running through players, coaches and supporters while keeping the established heritage of the signature blue and white hoops.

In an official press statement, the Cape Town franchise revealed that “each molecule that binds our DNA helix features our unique genetic code with the ‘number plate’ codes of various municipalities of the Western Cape, underlining how the Stormers are a team that play for the rugby-loving communities of the region. That is what binds us, that is what brings us together, thatโ€™s our DNA.”

The passion that the Stormers faithful have for their team is unrivalled and the DNA strands on the jersey underline how central they are to the identity of the Stormers and their mission to ‘Make Cape Town Smile’.

The 2023/24 away jersey is a vibrant design, which calls to mind colourful icons of the Cape Town landscape such as the Bo Kaap houses and Muizenberg beach huts.

The jersey also features a silhouette of Cape Town Stadium on the back, indicating that the team will take the colour and unwavering support of the Faithful with them wherever they may play in the United Rugby Championship and Champions Cup this season.

The Stormers Faithful are an incredibly diverse group of supporters whose colourful character serves as inspiration for the design, along with the natural beauty of the Western Cape and Cape Town as a city.

The Stormers’ home and away match jerseys are made of Exotek, which is a premium polyester spandex sublimation fabric with maximum stretch and recovery capabilities. The considerable burst strength of the fabric makes it perfect for rugby performance.

Stormers Head Coach John Dobson said the new jerseys speak directly to what will drive his squad as they take on another demanding campaign.

“We often speak of the rugby DNA of this region and our team. We try and play a brand of rugby that resonates with the people who support us, as a team we are a reflection of our incredibly diverse and passionate fanbase and these jerseys capture that connection perfectly,” he said.

Stormers captain Salmaan Moerat said that the team is looking forward to getting to work in the new jerseys when the season gets underway.

“We know who we play for and what we represent, that will always make playing for the Stormers more than just another rugby team.

“There has been a lot of hard work that has gone in to prepare the team for another tough season and we cannot wait to pull these new jerseys on for the first time and start performing for our fans,” he said.
