Vancouver Whitecaps 10-11 adidas kits

In a special event at Bell’s offices today, Vancouver Whitecaps FC revealed the new uniforms the club will wear during their inaugural season in Major League Soccer (MLS) in 2011. The event follows the launch of the club's new brand and logo.

Whitecaps FC men's team captain Martin Nash and women's team striker Kara Lang proudly donned the new uniforms during today's event at Bell.

"The new kits combine leading-edge technology, which will make for optimal performance on the pitch, while at the same time paying tribute to the many traditions that Whitecaps FC have established over the years," explained Whitecaps FC President Bob Lenarduzzi. "Soccer fans around the world take great pride in displaying their passion and loyalty for their favourite team by wearing their team's jersey on a regular basis. We believe both our many long-serving fans and new supporters of the club will proudly wear these new jerseys throughout Vancouver or wherever they may be around the globe."

Produced by world-renowned soccer brand and official MLS uniform supplier adidas, the new kit includes a jersey featuring the club’s recently unveiled logo on the left chest, an MLS logo on the right arm and a Canadian flag on the left arm. The front of the jerseys will also have the brand logo of Bell, the club's new Premier Founding Partner. On the back collar, the text 'Since 1974' pays homage to the year when Whitecaps FC played their first season in the old North American Soccer League.

In keeping with the main traditions of the club, the new Whitecaps FC primary uniform will be all white with “deep sea” blue trim. This includes the famous adidas three stripes running from the collar and down both arms of the primary jersey in deep sea blue, while thin horizontal stripes of deep sea blue run across the front of the jersey from above the chest and grow in thickness down the jersey's front. The horizontal stripes represent the lines in the water that are commonly seen across Vancouver's waterfront.

The new secondary uniform incorporates the club's other primary colour of deep sea blue with white trim. This includes three adidas stripes running from the collar and down both arms of the jersey in white. The secondary jersey also incorporates a pattern drawn from the shape of the
new Whitecaps FC logo.

The Whitecaps have had a great tradition in British Columbia, and we are extremely proud to partner with them and to be associated with such a premier club," said Wade Oosterman, President of Bell Mobility and Chief Brand Officer for Bell. “Bell shares a passion for the sport and we’re looking forward to sharing exclusive Whitecaps content with our soccer-loving mobile clients across Canada.”

It took me a while to get used to the logo until I deciphered it. It has the 3 vancouver mountains at the top (Cypress, Grouse and Seymore) and the bottom is a V and a W (Vancouver Whitecaps). The FC is prominent because we are a Football Club, not a Soccer Club like most American sides. Now I think it is a great, modern, logo that will soon be recognised around the world as the badge of the best team in MLS.

None of the MLS teams in the US use the term "soccer club" or an "SC" acronym. Dallas and Seattle both use "FC" and no other side that comes to mind uses anything else close.

Maybe there are lower-tier teams that use "soccer club," but American fans (though, sadly not the general public) knows what the game is called: Association Football. Of course, "soccer" is a British term, short for "association," but I can see how you could make the error.

Terrible kit, terrible logo. Combined with sponsor "BELL" which only makes me think "Bell End"... definitely not a shirt I'll be buying.

Players look more interested in using the phone than displaying the kit.

Minimalism is clearly the word of the week for the Whitecaps new brand. I personally was hoping for white shirt with blue shorts, but have to admit that since they insist on the all white kit, the blue piping on the white jersey is very attractive. The logo I am really starting to like.

To the person who said that the players looked too interested in their phones: the uniforms were being shown at Bell, the sponsor, who distributes and provdes service for those phones they are using. I guarantee you the players only did it as a courtesy to the big-money sponsor. (And that is the first time I have seen that picture all day, and I have been coming the web looking for news on the new kit).

I think they will probably tweak the jerseys every few years, but as long as they keep some sort of horizontal blue strip/bar/striping/pipes, I'll be very happy.

Really nice, classy kits. I like the bespoke pattern in the navy fabric.....
The dude, who says he wishes the Adidas deal would end (with MLS) is clearly not thinking straight....
Who would you prefer ? Burrrrrrrda ? . ;)

I would prefer Nike. But I'm against the whole one official kit brand for the whole league. I would most prefer clubs to pick their own kit brand but if mls had to pick one brand then Nike should be it. You're not thinking straight. Do you serously want to see one brand like adidas be the provider for all clubs for four more years? I'm tired of adidas stupid boring templates. Mls should axe the deal now

Really sharp, and I actually like the new crest. I would have preferred the horizontal white stripes on the white shirt to run all around the shirt and not be broken with those white panels down the sides.

I have no idea why they would want to abandon the Umbro uniforms they have this season. The Umbro's look great, and frankly, the new ones are hardly a departure. Looks like change merely for the sake of change. Dumb.

Kits are actually quality...old school piping and a classy Navy Blue to start the campaign. The tones and teh kits will change over time, they always do. For those of you [censored]ing about them...STFU. We have an MLS franchise, a stadium that will be envied and fans that will support the club. Yes the kits arent ideal butits a decnt start. The logo has grown onme because if you have ever sat anywhere witha reflection on the water near the mountains you would understand this vision. People embrace the club, the sponsors and the game. The most beautiful game is here again. We will have clubs from allover the world playing friendlies as well....

i have dreamed of an Adidas kit for years. i'm a Wolves fan and i think this kit would look awesome in gold and black. the pattern that runs through the shirt could be changed to the Wolf Head Badge in the hexagon that all interlock.

i like this kit! the badge although clever in what it incorporates is a little bland - although i understand the need for a copyrightable logo, they should have used the royal coat of arms for BC. not only is it awesome but would give a real traditional look to the shirt!

South Africa incorporates 2 logos on their international jerseys. the logo of the SAFA and the proteus flower which is also used by cricket and rugby! hopefully the whitecaps administration can add it for the next kit!
