via Colorado RapidsWhile not a lot is going on today in Major League Soccer, except for some US Open Cup action tonight, one club did present some new kits to their fans. Colorado unveiled a new 3rd kit at a private event in conjunction with the adidas ESP Tournament at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park recently.

The new kit is white jersey, burgundy shorts, and white socks. They will wear this third kit in all international matches and competitions from here forward.

Rapids will debut their new third uniform in match action for the first time at their home international match on Wednesday, July 9, when they take on Mexico’s Tigres at 8:00 p.m. at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park.

I must say I like the look and would honestly like to see it a bit more in league play from time to time. I would love to see more clubs get on board with a 3rd kit like the Rapids are doing for international matches and special games here and there. Maybe this is the start of that.

Don’t worry, the Rapids won’t be showing off any skin like the ladies above. Thank goodness right?

    I like this better than the current away kits. That baby blue is… unflattering… to say the least.
