New York Cosmos announce Nike Kit Deal

The New York Cosmos announced today that Nike will be the team’s official kit supplier for the 2013 NASL fall season. The attached jersey designs have been created by Nike in conjunction with the Cosmos and will be available here.

When the Cosmos return to the field at Hofstra University’s Shuart Stadium on Aug. 3 for the first time in nearly 30 years, they will sport the same colors and iconic logo as previously adorned by soccer legends Pelé, Franz Beckenbauer, Giorgio Chinaglia and Carlos Alberto during the 70s and 80s.

“Nike is undoubtedly one of the top sports apparel companies in the world,” Cosmos COO Erik Stover said. “We’re excited to enter into partnership with Nike and join their global soccer family. This is a significant step in our return to competitive soccer and we look forward to growing our long-term partnership.”

The Cosmos’ primary kit for the NASL 2013 fall season features a white shirt with green crew-neck collar, numbers and letters, plus white shorts with a green stripe and number. The secondary kit features a similar design with the green and white reversed. Both designs will be worn with white socks.

“Nike Soccer is proud and honored to partner with the New York Cosmos to provide innovative performance and training products to the coaches and players of the Club,” Nike Soccer’s General Manager for North America, Mark Seneker said.

The Cosmos jerseys will be available for pre-order in June. The jerseys will also be sold during all Cosmos home games at Hofstra University’s Shuart Stadium this fall.

    sucks that umbro doesn't exist anymore because the Cosmos were set to have really nice kits from the umbro "tailored by" series.
    Damn Nike buying out the little guy!

    I think that the Cosmos would be better served taking advantage of the retro market; using designs that are more recognizable to the public such as the jersey with the stripes down one side. I do like the simplicity of these kits though.
