Football Shirt Culture

DC United, of North American football’s MLS, have unveiled their new Away shirt.

The new secondary design by adidas - dubbed the “Marble Jersey” - features an architecture and monument-nodding texture pattern in blueish-grey, which is overlaid with the full colour crest, and the adidas logo and Leidos central sponsorship branding in blue. This tone matches that of the neck and cuffs - which both also feature red - and of the adidas striping on the shoulders.
