Last season’s MLS Cup and US Open Cup runners-up Real Salt Lake have launched their 2014/15 adidas home jersey. It was worn for the first time in match action during Saturday’s season-opening 1-0 win over the LA Galaxy. The new RSL shirt is now available at World Soccer Shop.
According to the club website: Real Salt Lake’s newly re-designed jersey will serve as the team’s primary shirt for the 2014 and 2015 seasons. The primary jersey showcases the team’s Claret-and-Cobalt colors, with the body of the shirt remaining the traditional Claret and the sleeves of the shirt colored Cobalt. A new infusion of gold was added into the kit this year, with a gold “crown bar” introduced across the chest and extended onto both sleeves.
At the heart of the jersey is the introduction of a three-dimensional lenticular RSL shield with visible crowns in the background. One star is vertically stacked above the shield to represent the team’s 2009 MLS Cup championship.
RSL’s crown is also featured on the nape of the jersey, above a narrower gold bar that runs across the back of the shirt. The neck tape on the inside of the jersey features RSL’s club motto “The Team is the Star.”
