Defending US Open Cup champions Sporting Kansas City unveiled their 2013 adidas home jersey at a season ticket member event at Sporting Park on Thursday night. It will be available at World Soccer Shop and soccer.com.
The club’s website describes to new kit as follows: The new primary jersey showcases the team’s Sporting Blue and Dark Indigo colors through a trendy asymmetrical design that emphasizes the state line brand element, which was introduced during the club’s rebrand in 2010.
The state line represents the shared border between Kansas and Missouri, with Sporting Kansas City having strong ties to both sides of the state line.
Additionally, at the time of launch, the Sporting KC home uniform is the only adidas jersey in the world with the company’s iconic three stripes shown in a different color on each sleeve. Major League Soccer’s exclusive supplier, adidas has provided the club’s uniforms since the inaugural season in 1996.
Ivy Funds, Sporting Kansas City’s presenting jersey partner and official investment management partner, is prominently showcased with the asset management firm’s logo centrally located on the front of the new home uniform. Headquartered in Overland Park, Kan., Ivy Funds entered into a multi-year sponsorship agreement with SportingKansas City that was announced at the 2013 MLS SuperDraft last month.
