The All Blacks are New Zealand's national rugby union team and consistently the most successful international sporting team over the past 100 years.
Statistically the best side to have ever played the game, the New Zealanders jointly hold the record for the most consecutive test match wins for a tier one ranked nation, with a phenomenal 77% winning record in international rugby, and a winning record against every opponent.
To build a world class online eCommerce store for a world class team. New Zealand Rugby was looking to work with an experienced eCommerce retailer to rebuild the New Zealand Rugby official online store at allblackshop.com.
We selected WooCommerce as it allowed for easy integration into [the team’s] other back-office systems. The All Blacks are a major Kiwi brand; the website has been a great success and testament to WooCommerce meeting the technology requirements for major retailers.

We began with learning more about New Zealand Rugby, how they represent their brands and how they wanted the new store to work. One core function was to allow fans of the official All Blacks site to login with their existing details, working closely with other developers.
For this project we envisaged a modern online store design which shared a closer design style with the main AllBlacks.com website. This was to help maintain stronger brand continuity between platforms.
Go the ABs! The website is finished and looking great across all devices but the game goes on. Check out the finished website: https://allblackshop.com/
