Defending Major League Soccer champions Los Angeles Galaxy unveiled their adidas third jersey for the 2013 and 2014 seasons.
The La Galaxy 2013/14 home kit was designed by the club’s fans using a Facebook app that was launched in May of 2013. From the over 8,000 designs submitted, five were selected for a online fan vote. The winning design was created by Carlos Rodriguez.
Rodriguez told the Galaxy, “I wanted the jersey to be a throwback to the inaugural season. Though there are certainly some people who might not place that jersey among the nicest LA Galaxy kits throughout the years for its somewhat flamboyant appearance, I have always looked at that jersey as one of the most iconic kits in MLS history.
Unfortunately, since those jerseys are out of production, I felt a kit harkening back to that year could be a memento for older and much younger Galaxy fans who never had a chance to put on that jersey or would like to don those colors once again.”
The new uniform will make its match debut when the La Galaxy meets Real Salt Lake in MLS action on August 17th, 2013.
