Japanese brand Asics have added Stade Francais to their list of major partnerships after inking a deal to supply kits beginning the 2015/16 season. Stade are the second major French Top 14 club to wear Asics jerseys after Castres. Asics also currently supply uniforms to both the South African and Australian national rugby union teams, as well as the Australian cricket team.
So what happens to the “distinctive” pink jerseys that Stade have become so famous for in the last few years? Will Asics continue the tradition? Asics outfitted Stade when they won the French championship in 1998.
