Seattle Sounders FC
An homage to the brilliant legacy of Bruce Lee, the Seattle Sounders FC, in partnership with the Bruce Lee Team led by Shannon Lee, reimagine the passion and flair of the late martial arts icon through its Community jersey. Celebrating the 50th anniversary of his passing and the release of Enter the Dragon, the Community jersey commemorates Lee’s everlasting imprint on the streets of Seattle and the call to action to embody his values on a global stage.
In the new year, Nashville SC opts for a new colorway. The Boys in Gold, now dressed in black, commemorate the original Man in Black, Johnny Cash. The newly interpreted color story and kit harkens back to February 29, 2022, when Blackline unveiled its first-ever MLS TIFO, an iconic image featuring Johnny Cash at San Quentin, famously flipping off the camera as an “NSC” logo covers his middle finger. Three years later, the club enshrines this moment while paying tribute to the late musician and Cash Estate.
New York Red Bulls
The New York Red Bulls kit is brought to life through a streetwear-inspired collaboration between Red Bull and luxury sports designer Daniel Patrick in tribute to the Big Apple. Riffing on the previous yellow and blue colorway donned by club legends like Bradley Wright-Phillips and Thierry Henry, the jersey is replete with design elements that complement the city’s contemporary take on street style and a new wave of sports-infused apparel.
Proud and bold, LAFC demonstrates the club’s historical prowess on the field. A vaporized smoke motif adorns the chest panel of the kit, highlighting the club’s “Away Days” culture and charismatic fandom. The sage green colorway enveloped in smoke denotes the club’s ability to fearlessly chart into unknown territory.
LA Galaxy’s kit embraces the colors of the city flag, first established in 1931. Made up of green, gold and red tones, LA Galaxy’s Community jersey is a slice of home and the subcultures native to Angelenos. The middle panel showcases a city seal dedicated to California’s olive trees, orange groves and vineyards, forever home to the state and its residents.
St. Louis CITY SC
Drawing design influences from CITYPARK, the St. Louis CITY SC 2023 Community Kit celebrates the region’s latest soccer hub and the communities that helped build it over two years. Arch Gray and River Blue pinstripes depict an aerial view of the steel beams supporting the stadium in an ode to its founders.
Minnesota United FC
For Minnesota United FC, the club links a connection between its signature colors and natural region, layering the tones of the aurora borealis over a traditional black-and-white colorway for this season’s kits. These ever-shifting northern lights mirror the illuminated Allianz Field at night and create a visually-arresting fusion of color.
Inter Miami CF
Capturing the nostalgia of soccer games at night and the cultural exchanges that pour over into the streets, Inter Miami CF’s Community jersey opts for a dusk-inspired color palette. A wave motif dominates the front panel, while pink trim reflects the city’s gorgeous skyline during RosaNegra Nights. As a finishing touch, an “M” logo adorns the jock tag.
Charlotte FC’s Club kit symbolizes the city’s will to progress and an unyielding pride for its residents. The Crown Jewel kit captures the city at its present, reclaiming its crown as the Queen City of the Carolinas. Deep purple and plum hues provide a touch of elegance and regality, and an embossed crown motif subtly nods to the city crest.
It’s a new day in Colorado. The New Day kit aims to support mental health awareness and initiatives throughout the season. From a design standpoint, Rocky Mountain High sunsets are visually paired with the city’s graphic street art — inspired by the works of Pat Milbery. As an ode to the western skies and the journeys that lie ahead, the kit features hits of Bluebird blue with accents of gold and fuchsia.
This kit design represents the triumphant moments led by Philadelphia Union as the club went on to play a Supporters’ Shield-winning season in 2020 and an Eastern Conference Final appearance in 2021. Defined by a psychedelic smoke motif, the kit embodies Philly’s determined front on the field using expressive elements that marry grit and beauty.
