With a good cause rooted at its heart, Sporting Kansas City have unveiled their new primary kit ahead of the 2021 MLS season, announcing with it that they have joined The Victory Project and Children’s Mercy Kansas City to launch “A Force for Good,” a community campaign that will coincide with the club’s 25-year anniversary in MLS.

A good story always serves to enhance a jersey design, and MLS is full of them. But perhaps none are as worthy as Sporting Kansas City’s. For the 2021 MLS season, Sporting’s primary and secondary kits will feature The Victory Project prominently displayed on the jersey front with Children’s Mercy adorning the left sleeve and Compass Minerals on the right sleeve. This marks the first time in MLS history that a charitable foundation will appear on the front of a team’s full-season jerseys. As part of the campaign, a portion of all Sporting Kansas City kit sales in 2021 will be donated to The Victory Project.

The shirt itself builds on the heritage and culture of a popular look for Sporting, evolving the look of the hooped 2014/15 and 2016/17 secondary jerseys. It features a return of the iconic Sporting Blue and Dark Indigo horizontal stripes, while the signature Three Stripes run along the shoulders. The back neck features argyle SKC initials, and the interior back neckline showcases the “Two States, One City, One Club” mantra.

For those not in the know, the Victory Project is a philanthropic foundation established by Sporting in 2013 that is dedicated to enhancing and enriching the lives of children battling cancer by providing special experiences and opportunities to children with disabilities and making the sport of soccer more accessible to children with limited financial resources.

Sporting Kansas City is incredibly proud to showcase The Victory Project and Children’s Mercy through this special campaign,” said Sporting Kansas City President and CEO Jake Reid. “By uniting with these organisations, we are perfectly positioned to give back to the communities that have given us so much. From the jerseys we wear on the field to the philanthropic programs we lead off the field, Sporting is dedicated to being a force for good across the region.
