Sporting Kansas City will pull on a throwback jerseys in celebration of the 20th anniversary of the club’s first match when they were known as the Kansas City Wiz and sported rainbow colors.
The special evening will take place against the Colorado Rapids on April 13. The Wiz won their inaugural match against the Rapids 3-0 at Arrowhead Stadium on the same date in 1996.
Sporting Kansas City will wear a special tribute training jersey ahead of the match. The black jersey with crew collar and white adidas 3-stripes down the shoulder and top of the sleeve will feature a yellow/red/green/blue rainbow feature down the front of the jersey along with the ‘Wiz’ badge.
The players will change into their 2016 Sporting Kansas City white argyle 3rd jersey with a custom rainbow number for the match.
The jersey is only part of the festivities planned as part of the 20th anniversary celebration. Children’s Mercy Park will have retro graphics on the scoreboard and play music from 1996. Dynamo the Dragon will be back on the sideline as the team mascot, and a 20th Anniversary Best XI will be named.
