New Major League Soccer franchise Charlotte FC today revealed its 2022 adidas away jersey. The shirt is called the ‘Newly Minted’ Community Kit.
According to Charlotte FC:
Consistent with the Carolina Kit revealed in December 2021, this sleek design boasts a modern look with Ally as the lead, front-of-jersey sponsor and Centene Corporation as the secondary sleeve partner.
Named the Newly Minted Community Kit, the design honors the rich history of Charlotte’s Mint and the significant role the city played in minting early American currency. The kit is flooded in black and rounded out with culturally relevant graphic patterns in the neck tape and sleeve cuffs. The color story coincides with the Club’s crest as “minted” also means “freshly made.”
“We’re very excited to launch the Newly Minted Community Kit as it celebrates our city’s history and progress. It is a way to inspire the vibrant Charlotte community to embrace their own MLS club as we prepare to take the pitch for our inaugural season in 2022,” said Nick Kelly, CEO of Tepper Sports and Entertainment. “We invite all fans here in Charlotte and across the Carolinas to join the party on March 5 for the biggest MLS match in league history.”
“I know the fans are going to love this unique kit, which is the perfect blend of Charlotte history and adidas vision,” said Andrea Brimmer, Chief Marketing and Public Relations Officer at Ally. “It’s another key step as the excitement builds for the first kick in the Carolinas.”
