The 2019 MLS season gets underway this weekend, and the 24 teams have been gearing up for the new season by launching their new kits over the last couple of months. Here, we bring them all together for a closer look.


MLS Kits 1-min.jpg

Atlanta United Primary

Kicking things off with last season's MLS Cup winners, and Atlanta launched their new jersey, cleverly titled the "Star and Stripes" jersey. The essence of the shirt remains the same as the last, with the red and black stripes forming the core, finished nicely with some gold trim for a regal feel that’s fit for the defending champions.

Chicago Fire Secondary

The fire revealed their new secondary jersey along with a slightly new look for their primary jersey after they agreed a deal new for a new jersey sponsor with Chicago-based mobile communications giants Motorola. The new secondary jersey was a fairly standard fair, inverting the existing look of the primary jersey.

Columbus Crew Primary

Another kit that came with a name, Columbus Crew launched their new primary kit, dubbed rather imaginatively the "2019 Gold Kit". It includes several nods that recognise Crew SC’s status as the first club charter awarded in MLS as well as commemorating the club’s initial MLS season in 1996.

DC United Secondary

In terms of invention, this one probably ranks pretty low. You'll notice several white kits on this list and this appears to be a running theme with this season's offerings, with adidas keen to ensure each team has one kit that clearly differentiates them from their opponents. The silver accents are the standout feature in an otherwise uninspiring offering for Rooney and co.

FC Cincinnati Primary (and Secondary)

Cincinnati have geared up for their inaugural season in MLS with a pair of jerseys, but with the secondary being an incredibly standard all-white affair, we'll focus on the primary. It takes a royal blue base, distinctively accented with vibrant orange diagonal lines of varying widths, which form virtual vertical stripes on the front of the jersey, lending it a sense of 'motion'. Nice.

MLS Kits 23-min.jpg

Montreal Impact Primary

The Impact's new primary jersey uses Montreal's customary blue and black vertical stripes, but as the shirt goes down, the vertical stripes feature small stripes breaking up the blue until the stripes fade away. Tradition with a twist.

MLS Kits 20-min.jpg

New England Revolution Secondary

Dubbed "The Colonial," New England's latest secondary jersey is supposedly inspired by the uniforms worn by colonial generals during the Revolutionary War. Ok then. The design for the Rev's new jersey features a predominantly white front with light blue sides and sleeves, tied together with navy blue trim.

MLS kit 4-min.jpg

New York City Primary

Arriving in the traditional sky blue colours of the club, the New York City primary jersey features a pigeon mosaic on the jock tag, honouring the unofficial bird of the city, a vertical stripe in the colours of the New York City flag, and the flag itself featured on the back neck. Done.

New York Red Bulls Secondary

One of the better efforts on display, the Red Bulls' Secondary "Glitch" jersey has the words “Love”, “Fight”, “Passion”, and “Glory” embedded on the front of the jersey in honour of the core values of the club. After securing the club’s third supporter’s shield in six years, the silver colourway pays homage to the club's success on and off the pitch.

MLS Kits 18-min.jpg

Orlando City Primary

Orlando's new primary jersey, called "Bring the Noise", is predominantly purple with a sublimated black design. The phrase “Defend the Fortress” appears in white on the back, just below the collar.

MLS Kits 17-min.jpg

Philadelphia Union Secondary

Celebrating the club's tenth season, the special "Inspired" jersey features customisable back tags in a first-ever in the MLS, bringing a unique identity to the new kit. Again, this is another one of those core white kits, but the tags certainly give it a little extra in the identity stakes.

MLS Kits 16-min.jpg

Toronto Primary

Supposedly inspired by the city itself – the most diverse city in the world – the main feature of the Toronto Primary jersey is the collar, which returns to the Toronto jersey for the first time since 2013. Says it all really.


MLS kits 15-min.jpg

Colorado Rapids Secondary

Yet another white offering, and you can bet that the home of the Rocky Mountains jumped on the opportunity to tie this in with a snow theme. Titled the “Black Diamond” kit after the toughest skiing runs (see, told you) the saving grace of this design is the Burgundy and grey accents. Wouldn't be bad if it didn't look like all the rest.

MLS Kits 14-min.jpg

FC Dallas Secondary

Named after the famous Reunion Tower, the "Reunion" jersey is inspired by the unique and iconic architecture of the city. At least it wasn't as bad as some of the "suggested" offerings. Perhaps that was just a way to temper expectations...

MLS Kits 24-min.jpg

Houston Dynamos Primary

Drawing inspiration from the city’s reputation as the Energy Capital of the World, the "Energy Kit" is orange, as you would expect from a Houston primary kit, but it features a dynamic sublimated lightning graphic across the jersey that lends it a little more depth. Not bad.

MLS Kits 13-min.jpg

LA Galaxy Secondary

Featuring a glitchy-styled design, the new adidas LA Galaxy secondary jersey puts a modernised twist on a colour combination that the club have used before on their away strips. Titled the "Night Navy" kit, the body features a vertical stripe design with a digital glitch inspiration for a bespoke look that stands proudly away from the templates widely used elsewhere.

MLS Kits 10-min.jpg

Los Angeles FC Secondary

Titled "Street by Street", LAFC's 2019 secondary jersey is inspired by the very materials and textures that make up the city of Los Angeles. Patterns and textures taken from the streets and avenues that connect the city, the recently unveiled jersey is an ode to the strength drawn from LA's streets.

MLS Kits 12-min.jpg

Minnesota United Secondary

The "Drift" jersey takes inspiration from the driving wind and snow of the frozen north. Yep, you guessed it, another white kit. This one may hold slightly more meaning in the years to come as it marks the first season that Minnesota will be playing in their stunning Allianz Field stadium.

MLS kits 11-min.jpg

Portland Timbers Primary

Providing a hooped tweak to the team's classic green and gold look, the Timbers' new primary jersey features alternating green horizontal stripes across the front, which are accented by “Native Gold” and white trim and details.

MLS Kits 9-min.jpg

Real Salt Lake Secondary

The Real Salt Lake secondary jersey puts an innovative spin on the numerous white jerseys by adding a digital "glitch" design that incorporates all of the team colours. 

MLS Kits 8-min.jpg

San Jose Earthquakes Primary

Retaining the trademark black-and-blue colouring, but with a new design that features a blue chest and Three Stripes on a core-black base, the "Unity" jersey ushers in a new era under head coach Matias Almeyda. Alright, but looks a bit like a training jersey to us.

MLS Kits 7-min.jpg

Seattle Sounders Secondary

The design inspiration for the Sounder's secondary “Nightfall” kit came from the evening sky over CenturyLink Field during an iconic match in Sounders FC history, as Seattle faced rivals Portland in front of 64,207 home fans on July 13, 2014. Good story, good look, good effort all round, this.

MLS kits 6-min.jpg

Sporting Kansas City Primary

Sporting Kansas City's new Primary jersey takes Sporting KC’s customary colours and combines them with the “Raw Grey” tonal accent colour of the kit’s diagonal stripes. Some unfair kick back to this one, there's a lot worse...

MLS kits 2-min.jpg

Vancouver Whitecaps Primary

The Whitecaps went retro with their design, bringing back a single-hoop look inspired by the jerseys the NASL's Whitecaps wore during their 1979 Soccer Bowl championship season.

And that's your lot. You can pick up all MLS kits from
