Stade unveil strangest jersey yet

Stade Francais boss Max Guazzini has moved his team one step further into the realm of bizarre jersey’s with the unveiling of their new strip.

Stade jersey

Well known for their trademark pink jersey with fluorescent silver lighting bolts the latest design was supposedly inspired by American artist Andy Warhol.

Rugby 365 reports that the strip, which will be used throughout the 2008-2009 Heineken Cup campaign, will make its debut this weekend in Ulster.

Warhol, an eccentric artist and public figure, was best known for his ‘pop art’ as well as also being the first man to coin he phrase, “fifteen minutes of fame.”

Guazzini is clearly, and perhaps unsurprisingly, a big fan of the man from Pittsburgh Pennsylvania and has honoured him with the new jersey’s design being “in the fashion of Andy Warhol”.

The jersey features multiple multi-coloured images of French heroine Blanche de Castille on the chest and torso while the sleeves are a metallic blue.

As one would expect the UK media have already labeled the strip rugby’s “worst-ever” design but is really just the latest in a number of steps by Guazzini in his crusade to break down the traditional macho image of rugby.

The former radio station owner has previously made the headlines for producing a fairly outrageous calendar featuring his players in very little clothing, entitled “ The Gods of Stade.”

Unbelievably, when asked for his views on the newest team uniform, Argentine and Stade star Juan Martin Hernandez said: “I like it”.

  • As a kid, my friend’s dad, who was heavy into soccer, told me that goal keepers try and make their shirts as outrageous as possible so as to wreak havoc with the attacking players’ eyes.

    I wonder how much of that is taking place with the stade Jerseys?

  • Damn, if only the Sharks can borrow some of this creativeness!! :idea: :idea:

    What about a black jersey with a grey Running sharky on the front and back? Our jersey is the only thing about the Sharks that I do not like. Too dull, we look like a bunch of orphans compared to other teams.

  • Wow, I didn’t think their jersey could get any worse. Somebody really needs to take control of Guazzini’s idea of French Flair b/c it is going far far off in the wrong direction.

  • @Frisbee (Comment 30) :

    I agree. I think you can’t go wrong with the basics and simplicity. All the colors, stripes, lightning bolts are just distracting. A ‘fashionable’ jersey does not influence a team to victory.

    I am so glad my other team (Toulouse) has stuck to their basic Black and Red kit and not have gone of the deep end like SF

    I can understand that as a tactic if employed by a desperate team in need of all the help it can get to secure a win but imo SF is far from being anywhere near that position.

    If he is so hung up on that why doesn’t he put his efforts into promoting the IGRAB (http://www.igrab.net/).

    Cant believe it’s under 4000. If it settles on the 2003 levels it’ll need to drop another 25%!

    Dunno about ‘you lot’ but yeah the volatility has made it ‘easy’ for any tech traders on the indices…

    I’ll be waiting again for around 2pm ‘your time’ for the action to start… long or short (2 contracts)… and then bed time…
