Colorado Rapids

Recommended Posts

I was testing my new template and I came up with this Colorado Rapids concept.

A touch of black and a classic cut collar for the home one;

The design on the chest reclaims a part of the original logo for the away one.

^ agreed. they need some sky blue (Colorado is one of the sunniest states, and it's a nice tie-in to the Nuggs).

that being said, amazing template and very nice start to a design concept.

Great looking template and a very classy look (besides the beer of course) for the Rapids.

Thanks for your comment Conrad. Forgot to give you credit for that stunning MLS font. Now added.

The design is cool. I think adding a bit of the blue in would be a nice addition to the kits.

I really wished the MLS didn't have just the Adidas contract. I like Adidas but i think it would be great if Nike, Adidas, Puma and maybe even Under Armour could split the league. I do think it is is good to not have random other companies to keep consistent and the quality high.

That first Rapids jersey reminds me way too much of the Timbers' alt from their first season.

Coming from someone who doesn't follow soccer or have any previous knowledge of these teams, I really like this set as is. I wouldn't mind seeing it with blue for comparison. But that white uniform though, I love that.

I really like the mountain sublimation on the white jersey very subtle, I almost missed it at first glance.

I don't think adding sky blue is a necessity, would play a nice homage to other Colorado sports teams such as the Nuggets and Avalanche (weren't the Rapids owned by the same people/person who owned the Avs?)

Still are. Stan Kroenke owns the Nuggets, Avalanche, Rapids, St. Louis Rams, and Arsenal. I guess technically now his son owns the Denver teams after he bought the Rams because the NFL won't allow owners to have teams in other NFL markets. As for the concept, it's nice. I agree that a little blue wouldn't hurt, but it's not necessary. I am a bit confused by the two different jersey sponsors. Is that normal in soccer? I admit I'm not very familiar with it, so I don't really know. And I know Miller and Coors are owned by the same company now, but it would be weird for a Colorado team to have Miller Lite and not a Coors brand as a sponsor.
