The new Sporting Kansas City jerseys have been leaked — by one of the team’s own players.
Midfielder Ilie Sanchez unveiled the club’s secondary jerseys Wednesday via his social media accounts. The kits feature an all-black look with metallic silver lettering and logos.
“This kit is an evolution of our previous argyle kits, showcasing a high-end reflex black with metallic accents,” said John Moncke, the team’s vice president of brand revenue. “Five years ago we launched the black argyle kit, then followed that up with a clean white and metallic argyle kit in 2015. This time we used a new black reflective argyle detail on the hem and back that looks amazing.”
Moncke said the design process for the new jerseys began two years ago.
The Adidas tops hold the Sporting KC shield and MLS Cup stars, a league logo and an Ivy Investments sponsorship logo. An argyle pattern lines the back of the neck. Below it, the names and numbers have a matte finish. The shorts, which are also black, have three metallic stripes down the side.
The jersey will be available for purchase at 5 p.m. Feb. 28, when the team holds its official season launch party at Children’s Mercy Park. More information about that event will be announced at a later date, according to the team.
