The 2015 Supporters Shield winners return with solid new secondary jersey.
In a season of changes for one of the charter clubs of Major League Soccer, 2015 turned from a season seemed destined for failure to one which resulted in the club’s second Supporters’ Shield in three seasons and falling just shy from playing and hosting the MLS Cup Final. As the 2016 season rolls in, a new secondary jersey from league-wide kit sponsor adidas does too for the New York Red Bulls.
As with previous clash jerseys recently, the latest one has a navy and yellow color scheme. The modern v-neck style is navy with yellow trim. The jersey features faint pinstripes throughout.
Taking a page from last season’s home kit, the sleeves are yellow, with a navy single stripe trim at the cuffs. The MLS badges are navy and white. The three-stripes are placed as side piping in yellow, from the underarms to the hem.
The inner collar and reverse side of the shirt have shout-outs to the club’s time as the MetroStars, with a red and black necktape with the words ‘Love, Fight, Passion, Glory’ on both sides and a red monochrome MetroStars silhouetted crest on the other side of the Red Bulls badge. Above the necktape in yellow text that says ‘Est. 1996’ over a navy and red two-toned stripe. The back-neck has the same two-tone stripe with New York etched in yellow.
The front of the jersey has the Red Bulls crest at the heart with a white adidas logo from it. The Red Bull logo is placed in the center.
The back features the New York Red Bulls wordmarks toward the bottom.
The 2016 adidas New York Red Bulls away jersey is scheduled to be available for sale on Friday, February 19 at World Soccer Shop.
