The New England Revolution have released their 2021 adidas away jersey. The shirt is called the Community Kit. It will be used for away matches during the team’s upcoming Major League Soccer and US Open Cup seasons.
According to the Revolution: Inspired by the block work of American Revolution Era war forts in the New England area, the Revolution’s Community Kit pays homage to The Fort – the club’s dedicated supporters’ sections at Gillette Stadium – and features a fort-inspired blocked white shirt with a monochromatic Revolution logo, white shorts, and sky blue socks.
The Fort, home to the Midnight Riders and the Rebellion, has been the heartbeat of Revolution home games dating back to Major League Soccer’s maiden campaign in 1996. From section 2 in Foxborough Stadium to sections 141, 142, and 143 in Gillette Stadium, Revolution supporters draw immense pride from their status as MLS originals amid the league’s rapid expansion.
Split branding on the sleeves and shorts, featuring a dark navy trim on one side and sky blue trim on the other, is unique to the Revolution, as is the blocked design on the shirt. The colors of the split represent the colors of the water and the sky that surround the war-era forts throughout New England.
A staple of every Revolution kit, the flag of New England remains on the back neck location of the jersey, while a custom jock tag also pays tribute to the Fort’s sections 141, 142, and 143. In addition, UnitedHealthcare returns for its 11th season as the club’s kit sponsor.
