ORLANDO, Fla. — With one year to go before officially joining Major League Soccer, Orlando City SC unveiled their final USL Pro kit on Saturday afternoon in downtown Orlando.
“I think the 2014 jersey, in my opinion, is probably the best jersey we ever had,” said club President Phil Rawlins. “Great jersey, great style. I like the two championship cups in the back, I really hope it becomes a popular jersey for our fans.
“To get hundreds of people to show up shows that this is a great turn out, especially when there are people lining up to buy the jersey. Our front office and Adrian (Heath) did most of the designing.”
The Lotto-branded jerseys feature the home kit being predominantly purple with white sleeves, while the away kit is all white with a slash of purple running down the side of the jersey. Changes from last year’s jerseys include the v-neck on both kits, while white silhouettes of Orlando’s two USL Pro championships are designed in the back collar of the uniform.
Orlando City goalkeepers will sport either an all black, with white slash running down the side or an all red with white on the side.
Orlando Health remains the team’s shirt sponsor, and they will also remain on the front of the uniforms in 2015 once the Lions jump into Major League Soccer.
What do you think of the jersey? Do you like the design? Can’t wait for Orlando’s MLS kit to come out?
