Orlando City SC debuted its 2023/24 adidas home jersey for Saturday night’s season opening win against New York Red Bulls. The shirt is called ‘The Wall Kit’.
According to Orlando City SC:
Inspired by the thousands that pack the Club’s first-of-its-kind safe-standing supporter section at Exploria Stadium, the kit draws its namesake from the section’s moniker and pays homage to the fans that rally week in and week out to defend our fortress.
“Our supporters have continuously served as the heartbeat of our stadium, from the moment they begin their march down Church Street to the continuous drumbeat that paces our players all 90 minutes,” Orlando City SC CMO Pedro Araujo said. “We are proud to unveil a kit that represents and pays tribute to the loyalty, passion and energy that they bring each match. We’re excited to have our fans ‘Man Every Wall’ – from the front row to the top of stadium and all around our 360-degree bowl – as we get the season underway and show why our supporters are the best in Major League Soccer.”
The jersey features the Club’s iconic purple and — the year after Orlando City hoisted the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup trophy — incorporates metallic gold embellishments that carry through the jersey, shorts and socks.
Adorning the front of the jersey is a pattern replicating that of a wall, an embodiment of the Lions’ supporters: the individuals that come together, brick by brick, to form an object stronger than the sum of its parts. Designs on the stitching, neck and Jock Tag reminds all fans to “Man Every Wall”, a long-lasting Club rallying cry for everyone, in all 25,000 of the venue’s seats, to unite and bring the energy of the Central Florida community in supporting its home Club.
