Major League Soccer charter club Columbus Crew SC are returning to a tried and true look to reveal their 2017 home jersey from adidas.
For the first time in two seasons, gold returns as the club’s primary home jersey color. The jersey has a classic look with black detailing on the v-neck collar, adidas 3-Stripes on the shoulders, and the checkerboard pattern under the sleeves. ‘Glory to Columbus’ is printed inside the neck tape.
The club hailing from Ohio’s state capital, the back neck has a monochrome black Ohio state flag under the collar.
The shoulders have black three-stripes placed, with the sleeves clean save for black cuffs. MLS logos in Crew SC colors are placed on the sleeves.
A silver star for the club’s lone MLS Cup is placed atop the crest.
The jocktag has ‘Charter Member #01’. Columbus was the first club selected when the league began operations in 1994 and began play in 1996.
Along with the return of yellow as primary jersey color comes a new sponsor, as Acura is Crew SC’s new shirt sponsor, replacing Barbasol.
The full kit includes gold shorts and socks which is lovingly referred to by fans as the ‘banana kit’ dubbed by Crew SC broadcaster Dwight Burgess.
Crew SC’s 2015 home jersey is now the change jersey for 2017. The Acura sponsor is white to reflect the update.
The 2017 adidas Columbus Crew SC home and away jerseys will be available soon at World Soccer Shop.
