Ireland fans are eager to return to a major international tournament and Umbro unveiled the home jersey that Ireland will wear in France on Friday.

The jersey is the traditional green but it is the detailing that sets this apart from other classic jerseys worn by the past.  The first detail that jumps out is the 2-tone green diagonal striping of the front and back of the body of the jersey.  The sleeves are a solid green.

The polo style collar as a green placket but with a white collar with orange stripe.

The inside back of the collar has 2 unique features with the print of an Irish weave with 53.3351° N and 6.2283° W, the coordinates of Aviva Stadium, Ireland’s national stadium.

The white and orange colors, of the Irish flag, are continued under the arm with a wide white panel running ¾ down under the arm.  The final ¼ of the front side has a narrow orange stripe that runs to the waistline.

The white numbers will be outlined in orange.
