Houston Dynamo adidas 2012 Third Kit

Major League Soccer team Houston Dynamo has unveiled its adidas 2012 third kit. The new jersey will join the Dynamo’s 2011/12 home and away kits in its playing range for the season. All of the Dynamo’s 2012 kits are now available at World Soccer Shop.

According to the club’s website: 2012 will mark a historic year for the Houston Dynamo franchise. In less than three weeks, the club will play its inaugural match in its brand-new home, BBVA Compass Stadium. At Houston Amateur Sports Park, the club’s training facility is well underway, and soon the Dynamo first team will have a training complex off the field to rival the success it has had on it. And on May 26, the Dynamo will move one step closer to leaving its footprint on the soccer community — both domestic and abroad – when it wears its third kit for the first time.

“It’s a soccer tradition to have a third kit,” Dynamo president Chris Canetti said. “Over the last few years, many MLS teams have unveiled third kits. We started this process with adidas a year-and-a-half ago and we are thrilled with the final product.”

When deciding on the concept for a third jersey, Canetti decided to mix the present with the past. The Dynamo’s third kit is orange, but a darker shade of orange than its primary kit. The kit also features vertical stripes and is the first Dynamo jersey in seven years to offer that feature.

“It’s very important for us to maintain our brand integrity and stick with an orange concept,” Canetti said. “I know that in soccer — especially overseas — a team’s third jersey is a far deviant from the normal color. We felt strongly that orange is such a big part about who we are that it would be inappropriate for us to be any other color.”

The Dynamo will debut the third jersey on national TV, when they host the Galaxy on May 26 at 1:30 p.m. on NBC Sports Network.
