The GIANTS have unveiled new AFLW jumper designs for season seven of the competition.
The GIANTS were an inaugural team in the women’s competition, fielding an AFLW side for the first time in 2017.
Over the first six seasons the women’s jumper was designed specific to the women’s program, in conjunction with AFLW apparel manufacturer Cotton On.
For the first time in 2022, the AFLW home jumper and a new Derby uniform will match the AFL program, reflecting the updated jumper design the club launched for the men’s program in 2021.
The new kit will unite the uniforms of the AFL and AFLW teams for the very first time.
GIANTS AFLW captain Alicia Eva said:
“We’re really excited to launch our new jumper designs for season seven.
“When the AFLW competition first launched in 2017 the decision was made to take a new approach for the club’s first jumper, and we’ve had plenty of historic moments in that jumper over our first six seasons.
“As we enter the new 18-team era, with a Sydney Derby for the very first time and an updated jumper design for the AFL team, it gave us a great opportunity to align our uniforms across both programs.
“No matter who you are, where you’re from or what you play, when you pull on the orange and charcoal with the iconic ‘G’ logo you represent our club, our regions, and our communities. We are one club whether you play AFL, AFLW or netball.
“Boys and girls across Western Sydney and the ACT grow up wanting to be GIANT like Alyce Parker or Toby Greene, and now they have one jumper that reflects that.”
The new home jumper has been re-designed with the club’s distinct orange and charcoal colours and the emblematic single ‘G’ emblazoned on the front.
The GIANTS have also launched a new all-charcoal Never Surrender kit for the AFLW team, first made famous by the men’s team.
The popular design has been replicated across the AFLW team as the GIANTS get set to play a cross-town Derby against the Swans for the very first time in the women’s competition.
The GIANTS will wear their new home jumper for the first time in round two when they host the Brisbane Lions at Manuka Oval.
The AFLW side will launch the Never Surrender jumper in round three when they take on the Swans at the SCG in the first week of Indigenous Round, with the GIANTS to wear their current Indigenous jumper - designed by Wiradjuri woman Leeanne Hunter - across the celebrations in round four and for all away games.
The club will also launch an updated Pride jumper for the round eight celebrations when the GIANTS take on Hawthorn at Henson Park.
AFLW season seven begins in late August with the GIANTS’ first home game on September 5. Memberships go on sale next week.
