Salford Red Devils launch 2024 home and away shirts

Salford Red Devils have been the latest Super League side to launch their shirts for 2024, announcing both their home and away strip in preparation for the new campaign.

The Red Devils had a difficult season in 2023 with Paul Rowley’s side finishing outside the play-offs and crashing out of the Challenge Cup in the quarter-finals.

Heading into 2024 the club have lost some star names such as Brodie Croft and Andy Ackers, however they’ve replenished their spine with the arrival of ex-Wigan Warriors man Cade Cust as well as the arrival of former Leeds man Nene Macdonald.

Salford confirmed the launch of their new kits through their social media and with a statement released on their website.

It read: “Salford Red Devils are delighted to release the 2024 home and away kit, in partnership with VX3.

“Inspired by Les Diables Rouges, a nickname given to the Salford team of 1934, who undertook a two month visit to the south of France to help the fledgling game in the country establish itself.

“The home jersey is a classic red; featuring a white collar and a red, white, and black pattern on the end of each sleeve.

“The shirt is paired with white shorts and hooped red, white, and black socks.

“Our 2024 away jersey is all black, with faded red streaks on the shoulders. The black shorts feature a red and white stripe on the sides, with the socks following a similar pattern.

“Involved in the kit launch was skipper, Kallum Watkins, World Cup finalist, Tim Lafai and exciting new addition, Cade Cust.

“Alongside the three members of the men’s first-team was Tamzin Corcoran and Summer Harris – two stars of our thriving women’s side.”

Last season saw the Red Devils show off a stylish third strip however one hasn’t yet been released, Rowley’s side currently just announcing their traditional red home shirt and an alternate black away strip.

Early fan reaction to the shirts has been positive however the large sponsor has come in for criticism.

One noted: “Almost two very nice kits. The white box around the main sponsor is so unnecessary.”

Whilst another offered a suggestion: “My only gripe is the large boxes round the sponsor. Could we not just take away the box and colour the logo? Not complaining, just a suggestion.”

Others appreciated the simplicity of the shirts: “Simple but effective,” whilst another added: “I like it, simple but sleek.”

Salford get their season underway when they travel to Headingley to face Leeds Rhinos on February 16th, a game that will see the Red Devils face their former stars Andy Ackers and Brodie Croft for the first time.
