Austin FC, the 27th club in Major League Soccer (MLS), unveiled has the Club’s secondary (away) jersey, named the “Legends Jersey”, ahead of its inaugural MLS season. The jersey prominently features YETI, the leading premium outdoor brand, as the Official Jersey Partner, and Netspend, Austin FC’s payments and digital solutions provider, as the Official Sleeve Partner. Austin FC’s secondary jersey celebrates the earliest group of Austin FC legends by honoring the Club’s supporters who help to grow the legend of Austin with Austin FC.
Austin FC’s Legends Jersey, which is engineered by the Official Sponsor and Product Supplier of MLS, adidas, is a classic white jersey design with bright verde accents and supporter-created features that are unique to the 2021 secondary kit. In addition to the distinctive bright verde shoulder and collar accents, this 1-year kit also features a matching green YETI logo on the front chest as well as matching green player letters and numbers on the back.
The custom jock tag on the jersey honors Austin Anthem, the Club’s first supporters group whose members played an inspirational role in the development of Austin FC. The neck tape was designed by Austin Anthem, and presents iconography celebrating places and themes meaningful to Austin FC supporters. The custom neck tape design icons include a record, taco, calavera, trumpet, guitar, food truck, soccer cleat, bat, and the Texas Capitol building.
Adding an innovative tech feature, the authentic jersey includes moisture-absorbing AEROREADY and lightweight, heat-applied details, while the replica jersey includes a woven Club crest. In an effort to support adidas’ pledge to only use recycled polyester for its footwear and clothing by 2024, the authentic and replica jerseys are produced with Primegreen, a range of high-performance recycled materials that contain no virgin plastic.
