Sporting Kansas City 2013 Adidas Third Football Shirt

Sporting Kansas City released their new, argyle-banded third kit in a most proactive way: They donned them and took to the field for their home match against the Portand Timbers on Saturday night. The all-black alternate uniform pays homage to the club’s roots when the team wore black in their first four seasons from 1996-1999.

The limited edition Sporting Kansas City authentic third jersey, along with a line of merchandise that includes t-shirts, hooded sweatshirts, tank tops and scarves, will be on sale exclusively at Sporting Style locations inside Sporting Park.

“Our in-house brand team set out to create a kit that blurs the line between fashion and sports,” said John Moncke, Sporting Kansas City’s Vice President of Stadium and Brand Revenue. “This jersey looks just as good with denim as it does on the field. You can wear this out, and people won't think you have a soccer jersey on.”

Complete with a collar at the neck, the jersey material is 30% lighter than the previous generation of kits and the design features an argyle pattern across the front that alternates between the team’s Sporting Blue and Dark Indigo colors. Adidas, Major League Soccer's exclusive supplier, has provided the club's uniforms since the inaugural season in 1996.

Ivy Funds, Sporting Kansas City's presenting jersey partner and the official investment management partner of Sporting Club, is prominently showcased with the asset management firm's logo centrally located on the front of the uniform. Headquartered in Overland Park, Kan., Ivy Funds entered into a multi-year sponsorship agreement with Sporting Kansas City that was announced at the 2013 MLS SuperDraft earlier this year.

In addition to Saturday’s match, Sporting Kansas City will wear the alternate jersey for select CONCACAF Champions League games during the 2013-2014 tournament and designated matches during the team’s defense of their Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup title.

Sporting Kansas City’s third kit release showcases the club’s emphasis on trendsetting fashion styles and provides a distinctive new look and feel for the team’s evolving brand. Sporting KC currently ranks second in merchandise revenue per capita amongst all MLS teams to date this season.

“We think that if you have a conversation about the coolest kits in the world, then our third kit should be a part of that dialogue," Moncke said.

Thanks to Tony

Really nice, simply done. Though, I;m pretty sure anyone could tell you were wearing a 'soccer jersey' within seconds.

Nice kit; a refreshing change from the usual teamwear templates (albeit not entirely original).

Why have Kansas merit a bespoke adidas kit, when much bigger more successful British teams have to pick a template out of a catalogue.

I still find it hard to take these guys seriously tbh - Sporting Kansas City just sounds a hilarious attempt to try to 'fit in' with football culture.

Because Adidas sponsors the entire MLS, and as a part of the deal make an unique shirt range for each team.

Kansas City is set right on the boarder between the states of Kansas and Missouri. The crest's peculiar blue lines are angled in such a way as to signify the state line through the city, showing that it represents the city as a whole. That same line is used in greater effect on their two-tone blue home kit, and is even evident to a lesser extent on their away.

Personally, I think it's quite a smart crest. But some people will never be pleased unless the club's been around for a century.

Similar to NFL dressing rooms I've seen during Superbowl coverage, wouldn't be surprised if they shared their stadium with other sports

Every team has the opportunity to do so.
If a team does not have a creative vision, like @SportingStyle's, then you're going to get stock pile kits.
