British communities brought rugby to Genoa between 1890 and 1895, with other games in Italy around 1909. The formation of the Italian Rugby Foundation took place in 1929. Italy’s first international game took place in 1929. Playing against Spain in Barcelona Italy lost 9-0. Italy entered the Rugby World Cup in 1987, causing a huge popularity boost for the sport in Italy. The inclusion of Italy in the Six Nations in 2000 caused another boost for the sport in the country.

Italian rugby’s traditional heartland consists of the Po Valley and other parts of Northern Italy.  This is because Italy’s introduction to Rugby is as a result of Italian workers returning from France. The returning workers gave Rugby a significant rural/working class base, which still exists in towns such as Treviso and Rovigo.

Manufactured from satin touch 100% cotton. The Italian Rugger T-Shirt features detailed embroidery on the vintage Italian Crest. Also featured on this garment is herringbone detail on the vents and velvet tape on the neck opening.  In addition a complex ‘8’ applique patch on the back with the Ellis Rugby branding on the arm.

The Ellis Rugby Italian T-Shirt is available in sizes S – XL.

Please note this T-Shirt is not a licensed product, nor is it a playing shirt. It is inspired by the national heroes who have played the wonderful game of Rugby Football.
