D.C. United unveiled their 2021 adidas away jersey on Friday. The shirt will be worn by the four-time MLS Cup champions for their upcoming Major League Soccer and US Open Cup seasons.
According to D.C. United: The (kit’s) marble pattern is representative of the iconic national monuments found in Washington, D.C. Marble is renowned for its strength and resilience; attributes that are constantly personified by the residents of the nation’s capital. Marble is also known for its individuality and diversity – no slab of marble is the same – and that is what makes it beautiful.
The jersey will also feature a Red, White, and Blue color scheme, rather than the familiar black and red. As the nation’s capital, the city is often viewed as a representation of the United States. Following a year defined by hardship, the importance of staying United is even more important and D.C. United are honored to represent the city and the American people symbolically through their colors each time the club steps onto the field.
The Marble Jersey will feature a new and updated “Unite the District” shirt tag. The phrase has become a focal point for the club as the Black-and-Red continue to use soccer as a method to bring people together.
D.C. United are proud to be a club that wholeheartedly believe in inclusivity and the concept that “All are welcome. All are United.”
