The Colorado Rapids unveiled the club's new third kit for the 08/09 season at a private event in conjunction with the adidas ESP Tournament that is currently taking place at Dick's Sporting Goods Park.
The Rapids' third kit features a white jersey, burgundy shorts, and white socks. The Rapids will wear this third kit in all international matches and competitions moving forward. The new third kit incorporates elements of the Rapids' existing DNA, such as the burgundy on the shorts and jersey lettering, as well as the newly-introduced hint of Arsenal Red in the new design.
The Colorado Rapids will debut their new third uniform in match action for the first time at their home international match this Wednesday, July 9, when they take on Mexico's Tigres at 8:00pm at Dick's Sporting Goods Park.
Since the Rapids players will be wearing the third kit for the first time this Wednesday, models from the Donna Baldwin Agency were on hand to present the new third kit to the guests and media members in attendance at the exclusive event, which was held at the Cantina at Dick's Sporting Goods Park and was invitation-only.
The Rapids' third jerseys are now available for purchase in limited inventory. The authentic third jerseys retail for $90 and are available exclusively for purchase through the Rapids' official team store, Altitude Authentics, both at the Team Store at Dick's Sporting Goods Park starting Tuesday, July 8 at 10:00am MT. Only authentic Rapids third kit game jerseys are available for purchase; replica jerseys will not be made available to the public.
