Gilbert are proud to have been chosen as the official ball supplier for Rugby World Cup 2021. Between 18th September and 16th October 2021, the world’s 12 best rugby playing nations will compete in New Zealand for rugby’s ultimate prize.
This is the first time a women's RWC has been hosted in the southern hemisphere and the tournament is sure to be bigger and better than ever.
Gilbert are pleased to also offer the RWC 2021 Replica Ball using the same innovative design. The fractal spiral pattern across the ball ends with the solid colour on either end of the ball, ensuring players have a key point of colour reference when rotating the ball.
It also consists of strikingly coloured geometric shapes that stand out well against the white ball. Including the official event mark and tournament look and feel, the ball offers an iconic RWC memento highlighting the unique rugby heritage of the tournament hosts New Zealand.
The RWC Replica Balls have a grippy rubber compound surface essential for practicing your skills at home. They are also fitted with a synthetic latex bladder for excellent air retention and the 3 Ply backing material ensures that they maintain their shape well.
