  • Jersey Talk, Third Kit

At least some are saying it is. Boy I really hope it isn’t the one GoSounders.com is showing right now. A bright yellow kit may blind us all. If they do go to a third kit I think a slick black one with green trim would be sharp (see below, kudos to GoSounders.com for the image). I wouldn’t be shocked to hear that the third kit is white with green trim.

For those wondering why they’re releasing a third kit, from what I’ve been able to gather CONCACAF requires three kits for their competitions. I couldn’t find an official word if that was true or not but it wouldn’t shock me if that was the case.

  • CONCACAF requires 3 kits? Is that a new rule? Because almost all of the other teams in the CCL only have two kits.

    I'm hoping for a verticle striped kit like Barca's. Replace the Red w/ green.

    Their probably doing a third kit to get their sales up. Everone bought a jersey last year and probably their sales dropped dramatically this year.

  • Not exactly sure, just heard that it was the case the other day but again not 100% sure.

  • Kaiser

    Please wear this! The Sounders have great owners, great fans, and my favorite coach in the league, but those green jerseys are by far the worst in the league. They hurt my eyes!!!

  • See that may be what I heard. Sounds like a good reason to have an extra color. Thanks Mike.

  • Regarding the CCL bit… according to CONCACAF Champions League Rules:
    “The visiting team must, in any case, bring two sets of uniforms to the
    stadiums that do not conflict with the home team’s uniform. (11.2.C)”

    So if the Sounders play a team who sport blue, they are supposed to have their green jersey, and…?
