DC United revealed a new 2011 third kit made by Adidas at the Washington Auto Show, which will be available here.
The full kit was unveiled on Saturday, January 29 at 2:00 p.m. on the L Street Bridge of the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. The presentation, featuring Branko Boskovic, Andy Najar, Chris Pontius, Santino Quaranta, Clyde Simms and Josh Wolff, anchors D.C. United Day at the Washington Auto Show™, presented by Volkswagen.
A giant 15x15 foot replica third jersey will hang in the main lobby of the Washington Convention Center for the remainder of the Washington Auto Show (Jan. 30-Feb. 6).
“We’re very excited about the new look that this alternate jersey will provide our team,” said D.C United Executive Vice President Stephen Zack. “The fact that the Volkswagen logo is so prominent on the front of our shirt is not lost on us - they are a wonderful company and are integrated into everything we do. We’re thrilled to launch the third kit with them at the Washington Auto Show.”
“Volkswagen is excited to have D.C. United here with us at the Washington Auto Show to showcase our continued partnership,” said Ben Freidson, Sports Strategy Manager, Volkswagen of America, Inc. “It’s important for us to be a part of this high-profile event with a team that is so integrated into the community. We’re looking forward to an exciting season together. ”
