Sporting Kansas City busted many March brackets in USA Today’s Ultimate Sports Uniform tournament. The MLS side was a #14 seed and marched all the way to the final and beat the Boston Bruins at the final hurdle to cut down the nets.
The dark horse entering the 32-jersey field defeated Notre Dame in the First Round and gathered momentum to go on to outlast iconic jerseys of the Chicago Cubs in the Second Round, Detroit Red Wings in the Sweet 16, Michigan Football in the Elite Eight, Oregon Football in the Semifinal and Boston Bruins in the Final.

Fans are familiar with the blue and dark indigo home jersey that features a ‘window pane’ design and Ivy Fund sponsor logo. The adidas jersey was unveiled at last year’s MLS Jersey Week. The club unveiled an equally impressive Away jersey in dark indigo with tonal stripes during a locally run commercial during the 2016 NFL Super Bowl.
