Vancouver Whitecaps 2012 Adidas Third Football Shirt

The 'Caps third kit is predominantly arbutus brown, with sky blue accents, which reflects the unique land full of deep roots and the high-reaching arms of the Douglas Fir, Western Red Cedar, Mountain Hemlock, Pacific Dogwood, Lodgepole Pine, and Sitka Spruce.

The third kit features a jersey, shorts, socks, and training top and jersey which will be worn by the ‘Caps Major League Soccer side three times this season – the first on June 16 when the ‘Caps host Western Conference rivals, Colorado Rapids.

it's the blue stitching the does this kit in. Since this is a knockoff of Germany's World cup away kit. Adidas could have just used the piping instead of the stitching to make the lines less obtrusive.

sQuoting Toby:
Being as Adidas set themselves such high standards with MLS kits, I must admit that this is rather disappointing...

You do realize that the 'Caps asked for this and not adidas right?? sometimes they've just got to make what a team asks for.

Well, "asked for" in the respect that Adidas presented them with 3-4 stock templates and the available color palette, and Vancouver chose the one they preferred.

MLS clubs rarely get to design their own jerseys (the one that clearly was, the Timbers' winless third jersey, was for Adidas' hometown team and was sold in a limited edition at a premium price).

Completly inaccurate - every MLS team chooses (and works with adidas design) what the design of the jersey is.

Sorry - I'm jus tired of adidas getting no love when all they do is try to grow the sport in the US and Canada.

I wish Adidas wasn't the sole sponsor of mls. Not enough variety. And I laugh at the explanation they give for their inspiration behind the design. That's total BS. Its a stock design that's already in use by other clubs. They just tried to legitimize a stock template. Seriously I wish the deal with Adidas ends soon and bring in more brands like Nike puma umbro lotto etc

As a resident of BC and a person familiar with many tree species including arbutus, I need an explanation of how on earth that deep dark brown is representative of the peachy-coloured wood and bark of arbutus.
Other than that it's an ok kit. I'd eventually like to see some green incorporated in the team's colour scheme though...

Oh look, a stock template.

This is why I oppose adidas' dominance in the MLS; with no competition, they can afford to dole out stuff like this. Ashaming to see them trying to justify their choice as well. And that colour is clearly not Arbutus.

When Reebok still held the A-League license, every team had brilliant kits; in this MLS season, only Chicago has two lovely kits. Houston and Montreal's home shirts are pretty great too, but the rest is.... uh. Yeah.

I mean, look at Philly Union's home and away kit; it's like they wanted a couldn't on which to use as home kit, so they just released both.

i totally agree with you man but your second paragraph kinda confuses me. you oppose adidas monopoly of MLS but then you go to say that Reebok's sole technical sponsorship to the A-league was a great thing. apart from that i agree Adidas is making crappy kits for MLS. come 2018 when the deal HOPEFULLY ends MLS will be mature enough to let its clubs fully think for themselves. i mean if they are allowed to sign shirt sponsorships then why cant they sign athletic brand sponsorships too?

English isn't my first language, so I tend to butcher sentences sometimes.

My point was that a monopoly can be a good thing in theory; Reebok performed admirably in the A-League. I honestly prefer such a construction over adidas/Nike/Puma templates left and right. But the current state of the MLS kit market shows how bad things can turn out, when you have the wrong company at the wheel.

I don't get your logic. My concisely made point is that people don't care about a Canadian third kit. You could have said "Me, I do" or "Supporters of the club"... instead you gave a stooopid answer barely better than "I know you are but what am I" or "You mum".

Quoting Kumrovec:
Canada and football don't mix, it's hockey land. And it's a third kit for an MLS club. Irrespective of the shirt actually being quite nice, who actually gives a damn about this kit.


Since when do you speak for everyone? Obviously a fair few do care and if you don't then whey bother replying?

Just because they're an MLS team doesn't mean they don't matter

Quoting tcs:
Why do MLS clubs often have the best kits but the slopiest football?!

because of single entity parity that basically puts every team on a league. Imagine a league with a $2 milllion budget, barely rewards successful clubs but subsidizes mediocre ones and fires coaches because they dont agree with their brand philosophy and you'll get a pretty good idea about why MLS is one of the worst leagues in the world

Tired of Adidas kits in MLS I feel like everything starts to look the same. You would think Nike would be able to help their country's league out but no... at least some damn variety I'm tired of seeing Adidas EVERYWHERE
