The Chicago Fire and adidas unveiled the club’s 2017 away jersey today. The jersey celebrates the club’s milestone 20th season in Major League Soccer.
The jersey is inspired by the club’s badge with the grey color coming from the center of the badge. The grey color works well with the navy blue and red detailing. Thin grey horizontal stripes on the front of the jersey give it a ‘heathered’ look.
The collar is navy, with a standard v-neck collar. The shoulders have three-stripe trim in navy cuff off at the sleeves, with matching sleeve cuffs.
The back has Crossed axes with a red six point star in the middle under the collar similar to the home jersey.
The sleeves have the MLS logos in their club colors of red, white and navy. A single star places atop the club badge representing their MLS Cup championship in 1998.
The right arm sleeve has four red six point stars on the cuff, a nod to Chicago’s city flag.
Text labeled ‘EST. 1997’ emblazoned in red is on the jocktagat the lower left of the jersey. It dates the club’s foundation.
The club’s established center stripe comes in red outlines only. Valspar returns as the shirt sponsor in navy.
The 2017 adidas Chicago Fire away jersey will be available soon at World Soccer Shop.
