Vancouver Whitecaps FC have revealed the club’s new 2021 Primary Jersey, known as the Hoop Jersey, and it features a design that carries on the iconic design that first emerged during the ‘Caps 1979 North American Soccer League (NASL) Soccer Bowl championship season. 

Tradition sits at the heart of the Vancouver Whitecaps 2021 ‘Hoop jersey’ – or more in the midriff to be precise. The blue hoop that dominates the design continues on from the last home jersey from 2019, returning after a period of absence, and here it’s been cut from three different fabrics and sewn on to the front.

Additional details include hoops around the sleeves, “The Village of Vancouver” on the back of the neck, jock tag with the Village logo, and a round neck as opposed to the collar from the previous Hoop kit. Jerseys will also have two-colour cresting, inspired by the blue names and red numbers from the early 80s Hoop jerseys.

Tradition is very important,” said Axel Schuster, Whitecaps FC chief executive officer and sporting director. “Our community is the heart of our club, and they have identified strongly with the Hoop throughout our history as the longest running professional soccer club in Canada and the United States. We are all looking forward to new memories in this edition when we start our season next month.
