Atlanta United today revealed its 2018 adidas away jersey during a sold-out open training session for season ticket holders at the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Training Ground.
Impressive in their first season last year, Atlanta United will wear their 2017/18 home shirt again for the upcoming MLS campaign.
Atlanta United players unveiled the ‘King Peach’ kit, which features a white jersey with peach accents representing a nod to the state’s iconic symbol and to its nickname, “The Peach State.”
Prior to one of the club’s home matches at Bobby Dodd Stadium during the 2017 inaugural season, Atlanta United supporters displayed a tifo with a golden crown perched on top of a sweet peach, a statement staking the club’s claim as Kings of the South.
The panel pattern decorating the front of the kit blends tradition and modern originality, inspired by the classic soccer ball design as well as the bold, state-of-the-art Mercedes-Benz Stadium roof.
The pattern signifies a tribute to the stadium, Atlanta’s new home for soccer, and now an architectural fixture of the city’s skyline.
