Racing Louisville FC unveiled their new home away shirts for the 2021-22 National Women’s Soccer League season.
Crafted by Matthew Wolff, the distinguished soccer designer behind the Racing Louisville crest and colours, both kits feature a play on the fleur de lis, a symbol firmly embedded in this city’s history and culture.
Fleur de lis, which translates to “lily flower,” appear in bloom on Racing’s midnight violet home kit. It’s speckled with butterflies and bees, an ode to Louisville native Muhammad Ali — known as “The Greatest” not just for his feats in the boxing ring but also for the social change he fostered. The white away kit, meanwhile, patterns a more traditional fleur de lis symbol in Racing’s primary colour, lavender.
Racing Louisville’s inaugural kits, which will be worn for at least two seasons, carry primary sponsorship from Louisville-based GE Appliances, also the front jersey partner for the USL Championship side Louisville City FC and the local pro clubs’ youth academies.
PNC Bank and Prüvit supplements appear on the back of Racing’s jerseys with Kentuckiana Toyota Dealers on the sleeve.
