After a tantalising teaser, the Canberra Raiders have shared more details about its alternate jersey for the 2024 NRL season.
Over the weekend the Raiders shared the first images of the third kit which responded to the fans' desire for an all-green jersey, and on Monday the club revealed more details about the new design.
The new jersey will be worn for trial matches against Parramatta this Saturday in Kogarah and next Sunday, February 25, against North Queensland at Seiffert Oval, and is already available for supporters to purchase.
The club also plan to wear the alternate jersey for a few games during the regular season.
That includes the last home game of the year, where 17 members that attend all matches at Bruce this season will go in the draw to win the unique game-worn jersey.
"We wanted something a lot cleaner in terms of colour palette, and to trial sponsor logos in mono," Raiders chief operating officer Jason Mathie told The Canberra Times.
"For the fans there was also a lot of commentary on social media and on game day saying they wanted a predominantly green jersey.
"We're really keen to see how people comment when it's actually worn in matches."
The Raiders will still have two other main home and away jerseys incorporating the ACT colours of blue and yellow, which will be identical to last season's offering, just with the new club logo.
A special edition Indigenous jersey and one more yet-to-be-revealed design will make a total of five different Raiders jerseys worn this year.
While the fresh all-green jersey got fans pumped for the upcoming season, it also prompted discussion about the Raiders' logo re-design, with many fans sharing criticism on the club's social media accounts.
The new logo for 2024 was first revealed in August last year so the club could streamline the use of the same image across social media, marketing, equipment and merchandise, telling fans it made for a "stronger brand".
The re-designed logo uses a darker shade of green and the viking's beard was made to be less bushy, too.
However even last year the logo drew the ire of some fans, with a petition launched to keep it to the previous design, and it seems it may still take some time to grow on people.
Canberra is set to name their squad for Saturday's trial on Tuesday afternoon.
