Vancouver Whitecaps FC today revealed their 2019 adidas kit for their upcoming Major League Soccer and Canadian Championship campaigns.
Called The Hoop Jersey, the Vancouver Whitecaps 2019 adidas home shirt celebrates the fourtieth anniversary of the club’s 1979 North American Soccer League (NASL) championship.
According to the Whitecaps:
The 2019 Hoop Jersey, crafted in conjunction with adidas, features the return of the wrap-around hoop made famous during the club’s NASL days. For the first time in the MLS era, the primary kit will feature a combination of white jersey, blue shorts, and white socks.
Some of the additional details include:
– Deep sea blue collar
– Jock tag as a nod to the club’s 1979 logo
– “1979 Champions” maple leaf badge
– Red cresting for name and numbers, derived from the hoop kits of the early ‘80s
“As we embark on the 40th anniversary of our 1979 championship, we’re excited to bring back the uniform that each and every one of us on that team wore with such pride for the club and city,” commented Bob Lenarduzzi, Whitecaps FC president. “This is a kit that we’re confident our fans and supporters are going to love.”
