Introducing the British & Irish Lions 1888 Cup Sirius Match Ball. Exclusively branded and produced for and used in the 1888 Cup match between the British and Irish Lions and Japan at BT Murrayfield Stadium. We have released a limited number of 25 for public sale. All 25 Official Sirius Match Balls will be provided with a certificate of authenticity. 

The 1888 Cup has been created especially for the match against Japan. It commemorates the first British Lions tour. The Lions last played at home in 2005 in Cardiff but the cup was not in existence then.

The Sirius Match Ball has been designed using the traditional Gilbert Rugby trademarked ellipse oval trims, synonymous with World Rugby. Taking its name after the brightest star in the sky, visible from both the Southern and Northern hemispheres, the ball represents the coming together of the best rugby players from across the globe. Sirius is also the 7th closest star from planet Earth, representing the 7th generation of Gilbert RWC match balls.

Sirius comprises an unrivalled grip pattern which includes two star shaped pimples of different heights to increase grip and aid water dispersion without compromising durability and aerodynamics. These represent the fact that the Sirius Star is made up of a main sequence star, Sirius A and a faint dwarf companion, Sirius B.

Sirius also presents a copolymer ‘air-loc’ bladder to ensure the ball remains inflated for the maximum amount of time possible.

If you want the ultimate rugby match ball, with an exclusive design - grab you exclusive Lions 1888 Cup Sirius match ball today.

Although limited in number to 25, these balls will not be numbered.
