Manly Warringah Sea Eagles Members and fans have spoken, and we’ve listened!
In response to popular demand, the Sea Eagles are bringing back the traditional white playing shorts this year.
Coinciding with the Club’s 75th year celebrations, the white shorts will now be worn throughout the 2021 season with the home (predominantly maroon) jersey and also with some special jerseys that will soon be released.
It’s the first time since 2016 that the white shorts will be worn.
The traditional white shorts have a long and proud history, with Manly wearing white shorts with a maroon jersey for their inaugural premiership match against the Western Suburbs Magpies on April 12, 1947.
The Sea Eagles have also worn the white shorts in five of the club’s eight Grand Final victories, including the last one in 2011.
Manly half-back Daly Cherry-Evans welcomed the news.
It is fantastic to hear we are returning to the traditional white shortsDaly Cherry-Evans
"It is part of who we are, the maroon and the white, it is our heritage and has been since our first season in 1947.
“This season is such an important year for the club, both on and off the field, being our 75th year and to know we will be running out at Lottoland in the white shorts again makes it even more special.”
