Managed by former Netherlands and Manchester United defender Jaap Stam, FC Cincinnati today revealed their 2021 adidas home jersey. The kit will be the Orange and Blue’s first choice shirt for their upcoming Major League Soccer and US Open Cup runs.
According to a release from FC Cincinnati: The jersey is primarily navy blue and features orange and royal blue pinstripes, a nod to the exterior LED Fins on the West End Stadium exterior. Although the pinstripes are static on the kit – with movement – they create a level of dynamism that is symbolic of the vibrant soccer culture in our city.
Building off the half-and-half split in shades of blue that comprised FC Cincinnati’s BOLD Kit, the Dynamic Kit sees a shift from FCC’s royal blue to its secondary navy blue being used as the primary color.
Additionally, the kit features adidas’ iconic 3-Stripes design in orange on both shoulders as well as thin orange bands just below thicker navy bands on the sleeve cuffs.
The authentic version of the Dynamic Kit also includes a customized hip tag which features an embroidered West End Stadium logo with the Roman numerals “MMXXI” to commemorate the opening of FC Cincinnati’s new home.
Similar to previous jersey design elements, the Dynamic Kit includes Cincinnati’s city motto, “Juncta Juvant” (Strength in Unity), strategically stitched inside the jersey on the neck tape. This serves as a reminder for all who wear the jersey of the region’s deep civic pride.
The full kit features navy shorts, which also include the 3-Stripes design in orange on both sides, with the FC Cincinnati crest above the right hem and a white adidas logo above the left hem.
