Returns & Refunds

CUSTOMER NOTICE: COVID-19 Global Pandemic

During the current COVID-19 Global Pandemic, London Irish Rugby Club will continue to operate its online shop, but we have had to implement some service limitations because of the health crisis.

The Club’s offices at Hazelwood – where our warehouse is situated – are closed and all non-essential staff have either been furloughed or been asked to work from home. However, retail staff have periodic access, but there will be interruptions to our normal service as a result.

United Kingdom and Rep. of Ireland Orders:

  • We are able to fulfil these via courier company DPD, but you are likely to experience a few days additional delay in receiving your purchase.
  • The Collect from Hazelwood Service remains suspended.  Our offices and other facilities are now closed to the public during the initial phases of the Return to Training Protocols for the professional club.  If you selected this option at checkout please e-mail shop@london-irish.com with your delivery address, quoting your order number.

Overseas Orders (excluding above):

  • The club have now been able to make alternative despatch arrangement for overseas order so these can now be fulfilled, but globally, courier and postal services are slower than normal so you can expect to experience a few days additional delay in receiving your purchase.

Online Shop Returns:

  • The club have been able to put in place a process that allows for the return of online shop purchases, but operational circumstances mean the supply of replacement items, or the issuing of refunds, may take a while so we thank you in advance for your understanding and patience. 
  • Please return the item/s in question to the address below - for the attention of SHOP RETURNS - enclosing the original documents and indicating the replacement size or your preference for a refund.

We apologise for these inconveniences and appreciate your patience at this time.
