Three days prior to its first game, the Montreal Impact officially launched its season Wednesday evening, at New City Gas, where the club unveiled plans to honour its 20th anniversary, while unveiling the 2013 roster.
Honouring the team’s inaugural season in 1993, the club unveiled a third jersey that resembles the black and blue vertically striped uniform from the team’s inaugural year, with a few modern touches.
The blue in the 2013 jersey, which was much darker two decades ago, remains loyal to the blue colours of the MLS edition of the Impact, along with a more modern, tighter fit, which players are accustomed to today.
The collar has been revamped to hold its shape and includes two buttons down the front and, at the ends of the sleeves for both the long and short versions, has elastic to keep it tight around the arm.
Produced by adidas, it will feature the club’s presenting partner’s logo, BMO Financial Group logo.
