Real Salt Lake revealed their 2016 home jersey with nice take on their claret jersey with cobalt and gold detailing. The most noticeable change from recent years is that the sleeves are both the claret color rather than using one of both sleeves in cobalt.
The solid red jersey gives RSL fans a more classic look this season but has its unique flair with subtle red pinstriping included on the front of the jersey. The collar is a modified v-neck in cobalt with golden trim. The sleeves have a gold and cobalt detailing on the sleeve cuff.
Real Salt Lake’s new adidas home kit for 2016 comes in the club colors, Claret and Cobalt, with golden trim. The cobalt sleeves have been traded in for a simpler look, as pinstripes take over as the main design element.
The yellow necktape includes the club’s motto, ‘Believe’, along with the crown over the ‘v’ and the RSL monogram in the background of the ‘Believe.’
On the back of the collar, club mascot Leo the Lion appears in claret over golden and cobalt stripes.
A star, for their 2009 MLS Cup triumph, is over the crest on the jersey.
The sides of the jersey have adidas’ trademark three-stripe streak from the under the arms to the hem. The stripes, usually on the sleeves, sees the new location fit well with the shorts, creating a consistent look.
The jock tag at the bottom left has a stylized logo of Rio Tinto Stadium, known by fans as the ‘RioT,’ and the American flag on the right side of the jersey. LifeVantage returns as the shirt sponsor for RSL.
The 2016 Real Salt Lake home jersey will be available soon at World Soccer Shop.
