10 New MLS Jerseys You Need to Buy

Proper football is a culture unlike any other when it comes to the creativity that goes on for so many clubs and leagues behind the scenes.

Each year, clubs will use their kit releases as an opportunity to hype fans up for the new campaign, draw attention to a new key signing or distract them from the fact that the team might not be very good.

Whatever the case may be, Major League Soccer and adidas’ partnership has been incredibly fruitful over the years and produced some amazing kits across the league.

With the 2021 season kicking off Friday, we’re taking a look at 10 of the new kits that you absolutely need to consider buying.

Philadelphia Union “BY⚡️U”

The “BY⚡️U” kit displays lightning bolts throughout and the light blue gives off San Diego/Los Angeles Chargers vibes. Absolutely incredible kit out of Philadelphia as the Union look to be one of the Eastern Conference’s top sides again in 2021.

LA Galaxy “Community”

The Galaxy’s “Community” kit throws it back to an MLS original jersey the club displayed in their inaugural campaign back in 1996. LA fans will surely be happy to throw it back to their roots, and this one will definitely be a top seller with all retro kit aficionados like myself.

Seattle Sounders “Jimi Hendrix”

There’s literally nothing bad to say about Seattle’s “Jimi Hendrix” kit. The ode to the rock legend is amazing in itself, but the purple and orange color scheme really makes it pop, while also giving off a hard rock vibe. It’s only fitting for the Sounders, who traditionally play Hendrix’s “All Along The Watchtower” prior to every home game at Lumen Field.

Inter Miami “Palma”

The second-year club throws the obvious nod to the palm trees that line Miami Beach in south Florida, but the subtlety of the kit is honestly a much-needed improvement from their plain jerseys of a season ago. The black base with pink trim really is unique in MLS and makes this kit stand out from other clubs.

Sporting KC “Argyle”

Sporting KC seemingly always comes out with fire kits, and although this one may be simpler than previous years it’s still classy as hell. The traditional horizontal stripes goes perfect with their navy and light blue color scheme.

New York City FC “Bronx Blue”

NYCFC’s traditional sky blue has been a hallmark of their home kits since 2015, but this is the first time the club has really altered its actual design that they’ll don at Yankee Stadium. The faded vertical stripes are subtle, but when you look closely the kit is really well done. Definitely sets them apart from Manchester City’s kits a bit more.

Austin FC “Inaugural”

Whenever a new MLS club joins the league, there’s hope that different colors will be used to represent it and set them apart from everyone else. Although Timbers green has become associated with Portland, this Austin kit gives off Atlanta vibes with the thick vertical stripes. Solid start for Austin, who have certainly won fans over very quickly without having played a game yet.

FC Cincinnati “Dynamic”

Maybe it’s just because my personal bias says the orange and blue go really well together, but this is a severely underrated kit. The pinstripes look isn’t utilized enough, and honestly this one looks much better than what Atlanta put out after their change to thinner stripes in 2021.

FC Dallas “Community”

FC Dallas provides shade of France at the 2018 World Cup into this kit, and they definitely nailed it perfectly. Very elegant design and one that will definitely make casual fans want to pick one up.

Chicago Fire “Lakefront”

The Fire’s “Lakefront” kit has so many layers to it, and that’s makes it so great. The navy horizontal stripes create an optical illusion that mimics the Chicago flag’s light blue border and then boasts large stars in the center. The kit features six faded stars down the center, and it’s truly an awesome way to end this list.
