Major League Soccer and adidas have revealed the 2015 MLS All-Star jersey. This year’s selection of the the league’s most highly-rated players will don the kit when face touring Tottenham Hotspur at the 2015 AT&T MLS All-Star Game on July 29. The distinctive looking shirt will be available in authentic and replica versions at World Soccer Shop.
According to MLS: The standout feature of the jersey is the traditional soccer sash featuring a modern design that incorporates both a star from the US flag and the leaf from the Canadian flag to commemorate the two nations that make up the league. The same sash design is also found on the neck taping.
The primary colors of the shirt are red, white and blue in a nod to the new MLS crest, which features those same colors. The three stars that make up the MLS logo are also present on the back of the All-Star jersey with the words identifying the three league pillars they represent: “Club, Country, Community” (below, right).
It’s also a special 20th-season shirt, celebrating the league’s history with a jock tag on the lower left area of the authentic shirts (below, left).
