All 2018 MLS Jerseys Revealed (so far)
With the start of Major League Soccer season just about a month away, many of the teams have released their new kits for the 2018/19 season. Below you will find all the newest jerseys released. Atlanta United, Houston Dynamo, Los Angeles Football Club, Montreal Impact, Orlando City, and Toronto FC have yet to release their new kits for the upcoming season at the time of this publication.
Hype in Chicago is at an all-time high. Signing German National Team legend Bastian Schweinsteiger gave the Fire a major improvement with their squad and the club earned the number three seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs.
Despite being knocked out by New York Red Bulls in the first round of the MLS Cup Playoff, Chicago will look to continue to build on the success they found last season. Resigning Schweinsteiger isn’t a bad start either.
The club will look to bounce back from a disappointing 10th place finish in the Western Conference with these new threads. Any team with USMNT legend Tim Howard is always a team to be feared, however, the club will have some work to do in 2018.
The Crew had one of the most magical runs in the 2017 MLS Cup Playoffs as the 5th seed and reaching all the way to the Eastern Conference Finals. The Crew will look to make another deep playoff run in 2018 with these slick away kits with subtle yellow accents.
The brand new striped home jersey isn’t the only new things coming to D.C. United fans this season. After 22 years at RFK Memorial Stadium, United will move this upcoming season to Audi Field. Not only that, but United was also able to sign striker Yamil Asad, which will boost the team’s attack.
Dallas has dropped the hoops and hopes to get back to the top of the table this season. The new clean look draws inspiration from the Texas flag, and also has a touching tribute to the late, great Lamar Hunt on the sleeve.
Although the Galaxy last season was not the powerhouse they usually are, you can never count out the 5-time MLS Cup champions. With the addition of cross-town rivals LAFC, the Galaxy made all the stops with their new kit by inspiring the past and showing their new rivals that greatness isn’t bought but built through years of hard work, and sweat.
It took the Loons a little bit to get their feet under them in their inaugural season, but once they did, boy were they fun to watch. The combination of Miguel Ibara and Christian Ramirez are as lethal as any in MLS. The new, bold home look takes away the awkward-looking sash and got more of a clean look with the stripes.
New England Revolution:
Despite missing the playoffs last season, the Revolution have a good squad that is ready to cause damage this upcoming season. With dynamic players such as Juan Agudelo, Lee Nguyen, Kelyn Rowe, and Kei Kamara, the Revs should have what it takes to make the 2018 MLS Cup Playoffs
New York City FC:
A predominantly gray design inspired by the “grit and attitude” of the concrete jungle that the club calls home, the New York City FC 2018 away kits aren’t as nice as their black and orange ones, but they are a nice addition to any collection.
New York Red Bulls:
Red is back. Fans have been asking for these all-red jerseys for a while now and on January 1 the club answered. The Red Bulls will look to continue their success from last season where it saw the club fall in the Eastern Conference Semifinals to the eventual champions, with these slick red away kits.
Can the Union channel their best Nick Foles impression and make an improbable run to the MLS Cup Finals? The City of Philadelphia is in a state of euphoria since the Eagles won Super Bowl LII a few weeks ago. Can the Union continue the happiness in the City of Brotherly Love?
With a young striker in Fafa Picault who scored seven times last season, USMNT star Alejandro Bedoya, and proven striker CJ Sapong, the Union will continue to #TrustTheProcess in 2018.
New head coach, new jersey. The Timbers will look to continue their dominance of not only Cascadia, but the entire Western Conference this upcoming season under former New York Cosmos head coach Giovanni Savarese. While they do that, the Timbers will look sharp while doing it in these slick white kits.
Real Salt Lake:
Yes, Kyle Beckerman cut his iconic dreads… Let’s move past that and see that the club finished the 2017 season in 8th place and were not in the playoffs for only the second time since 2008. Beckerman and company will look to not make that three times as they take the pitch this season.
San Jose Earthquakes:
Probably one of the most unique jerseys on this list.
The new away jersey features a patterned graphic representing the Quake’s impact pattern, as seen on the club crest, and is inspired by the Navy. However, what makes the jersey unique is the Navy Seal Foundation patch in the back of the jersey which is a fundraising effort, in which 5% of each jersey sold at the Quakes Team Store will be donated to the foundation.
Seattle Sounders FC:
The Sounders were unable to go for back-to-back titles this season thanks to Jozy Altidore and Toronto FC. However, that doesn’t mean the Sounder aren’t looking to reclaim their throne in their new Rave Green home jersey. Don’t ever count a team with Clint Dempsey, Jordan Morris, and Osvaldo Alonso out. MLS is officially on notice.
Sporting Kansas City:
Black seems to be a theme for a few clubs this season. Sporting Kansas City is also back in black this season with these black kits with metallic silver lettering. Sporting KC sees the new design as an evolution on previous metallic kits. Can they reclaim MLS Cup glory with their new kits? Only time will tell.
Another black kit, and another unique reasoning. The Whitecaps are calling all their fans to “Unite” with the new “United Jersey” they dropped. Whitecaps will look to build on their third-place finish with their new alternate colorway that comes from the outline of the club crest and feature triangles throughout the jersey to symbolize the connection between fans, players, and the city.
