Among the best supported teams in Major League Soccer, Seattle Sounders FC will wear a Halo 5: Guardians video game theme version of their 2015 adidas third kit for this Sunday’s clash with the LA Galaxy at CenturyLink Field.
The jersey will feature the logo of the game in its shirt sponsor area along beneath that of the Microsoft Xbox that has been a fixture on Sounders kits since the console launched over a year ago.
According to the Sounders: The use of the team’s third uniform on Sunday will mark the first time an MLS club has altered its jerseys for any match mid-season, as well as the first time Sounders FC has worn anything other than Rave Green jerseys for an MLS regular season home fixture.
The new Halo 5: Guardians-inspired jerseys utilize Sounders FC’s Pitch Black third kits. During warmups, Sounders FC players are also wearing limited edition pre-match training tops, custom-made with Sounders FC and Halo 5: Guardians branding.
Halo lead character Master Chief and Seattle Sounders defender Chad Marshall and goalkeeper Stefan Frei appeared in the new kit on local TV station Q13 FOX on Tuesday morning to reveal the jersey.
