On International Earth Day, celebrated on April 22nd, Kaufland Romania and the 11even Association, with the support of the Romanian Rugby Federation, broke the record for "The biggest shirt in the world", listed in the Guinness World Records.
The Giant T-shirt is made exclusively from textile material from recycled plastic, resulting from the capitalization of over 250,000 PETs (Polyethylene terephthalate).
The record was ratified on Saturday, at the "Arcul de Triumf" National Rugby Stadium in Bucharest, after the Giant's Jersey was measured by a team of surveying engineers and checked based on strict criteria by a representative of Guinness World Records.
The ceremony was held in the presence of 1500 spectators, among which were players of the national rugby team, media representatives, partners, children and young people from various sports clubs in Bucharest, as well as other registered participants. The moment was later celebrated by a concert performed by Smiley.
The Giant T-shirt weighs approx 4 tons and is similar in size to a rugby pitch, measuring 108.96 meters long and 73.48 meters wide. Tailors, professional transporters and over 150 volunteers worked to display it.
The shirt has on it a reinterpreted model of the national flag, a tricolor belt, model that is used on the official jersey of the Romanian rugby team.
