Gilbert are proud to have been chosen as the official ball supplier for Rugby World Cup 2023. Between 8th September and 28th October 2023, the world’s 20 best men's rugby playing nations will compete in France for rugby’s ultimate prize.
Gilbert are delighted to offer the official RWC 2023 ball range, launching in 2021 with this size 5 replica ball. The beautiful innovative RWC 2023 ball design showcases the very best of the official tournament look and feel. The mobius graphics represent connection and daring tradition, and on the ball we have included all 10 host city mobius graphics.
As is traditional for all elite Gilbert rugby balls, we have ensured a solid colour is included on either end of the ball, ensuring players have a key point of colour reference when rotating the ball.
The striking design includes the official colours designed by tournament organisers, France 2023, with the official event mark and official tournament hashtag #RWC2023 included on 2 panels. As the finishing touch, we have also included the iconic RWC Webb Ellis trophy icon on either end of the ball.
The RWC Replica Balls have a grippy rubber compound surface essential for practising 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.
