The Seattle Sounders are taking the lead heading into the 2016 MLS season becoming the first side to unveil 2 new looks for the upcoming campaign. The 2016 Rave Green home jersey will be joined by the ‘Pacific Blue’ third jersey.
The Rave Green home jersey has a green body with blue sleeves with a green detail on the cuff and features a green v-neck collar with blue trim. The chant ‘Sky of Blue, Sea of Green’ is printed on the back of the neck tape. The adidas 3-Stripes in blue run from down the side seam from under the arm to the waistline.
The most interesting but subtle feature of the jersey is the interlocking ‘S’ designed woven into the green fabric of the body. The ‘S’ design represents the Seattle Sounders and was inspired by Mt Rainier, a presence in the city that is woven into the community.
The tribute to the city and citizens of Seattle is continued with City Seal being placed on the jock tag on the lower left corner of the jersey.
The ‘Pacific Blue’ third jersey breaks from tradition but remains true to the city. The color is inspired by the Puget Sound which is so deeply associated with the city. The jersey has a heathered design with a dark blue base and random light blue horizontal hachure marks detailing perfectly capturing the feel of the rippled waters of the Puget Sound.
The Sounders team badge stands out with an updated monochrome design which plays perfectly with the overall 1-color look of the jersey. A royal blue version of Seattle’s City Seal is on the jock tag.
The jersey is consistent with the home jersey with a v-neck collar in navy with light blue trim. The adidas 3-Stripes are light blue and run down the side seam from under the arm to the waistline.
The Seattle Sounders 2016 home and third jerseys will be available at World Soccer Shop starting on Saturday, February 20.
