  1. Obviously, want the black to sell and it has based off the numbers we've gotten but it's not here to stay. You'll see a return to a more traditional Sporting "dark" kit next season. It's one of my favorites. Excited to get it released next year.
  2. The league has certainly pushed away from light and dark combo's. It's why you'll likely never seen Sporting in hoops again even though it was a fan favorite.
  3. This is true. Long-sleeve is no longer an option. Players will be wearing long sleeve compression shirts if they want that option from what I've heard.
  4. Shorts are a blue-gray, which adidas officially calls "Raw Gray". It is meant to match the digital sashes. I can say it looks great from what we got in the marketing photoshoot. Excited to see it on the field.
  5. Getting hotter ;) Kit launch btw is Monday - February 4.
  6. It's something the league won't allow us to do. It wouldn't give enough contrast from a secondary "dark" kit. Which I don't agree with.
  7. adidas literally sent 5 tops which still have sample tags. They're simply not ready. It's still pulling teeth to even get that. The entire shipment comes in late January for every club.
  8. Yet our club clearly does and still struggles to get anything. You're overestimating how much say we actually have.
  9. Unfortunately, most clubs didn't get their kits yet from adidas. At Sporting we only have 5-10 tops right now, mostly because we asked for them early to start photoshoots.
  10. That's fair but its exactly against their guidelines to do so. Adidas has ghosted logos in the past so it doesn't surprise me. I'm just saying how it should be.
  11. It would be exactly like this. That's their proper one color logo for dark backgrounds.
  12. Technically they do allow them. Adidas requires a combined sale of 100,000 units of primary/secondary jerseys every season to get a third kit. That's a worldwide requirement. No one in MLS even comes close. I still wish they treated MLS differently on that front but it is what it is.
  13. Downloaded the SVG. There is for sure a royal blue and "dark" blue in it.
  14. This would more than likely violate Bell's brand guidelines. Most companies require a certain amount of clear space around their logo.
  15. Another little-hidden gem in the MLS font near the top of every number:
