One of Major League Soccer’s two expansion clubs for 2015 has revealed their inagural home kit. Orlando City SC, one of the premier clubs in the USL-PRO, will step up to the top league in the United States and Canada, Major League Soccer. The kit features Orlando City’s past, present and future.
The kit is a very solid purple, with white and gold details. The collar is a v-neck with a thin gold trim at the top. The inner collar has the tagline “This is Orlando” on the neckline. The back has a golden crown logo with an Orlando City wordmark.
The jersey features a faint mini-hoop design with a lighter shade of purple on the chest. The trademark adidas three stripes on the sleeves are white, and both sleeves have the new MLS logo on each arm. Longtime sponsor Orlando Health returns on the first Lions kit of the MLS era.
The new badge for their MLS era appears on the chest, but the inside of the shirt has a black and white version of the old USL badge sitting behind it, a great touch. The very bottom of the shirt has a thick white stripe.
The shorts are purple with adidas three stripes on each side. The socks ave a white top stripe with purple adidas three stripes within it.
Orlando City gear is available at WorldSoccerShop and other soccer retailers.
