2015-16 Soccer Kits and News

Recommended Posts

This year is the first time we've really seen Nike be lazy with their templates.

Y'all keep saying this, but there's a mound of evidence that suggests otherwise. Anyone remember the pool-ball template?

Good point. I tried to forget those monstrosities. At the same time, adidas and Puma really only used one template as well. Man United had a goofy collar and avoided the opposite colored nameplate.

Watching MLS playoffs, has NY Red Bulls keepers had New York above the Red Bulls word mark all year?

Usually around December the new Kit kits leak for the next season. I hope this will be the case again this year.

MLS has a new number font to go with the launch of MLS Next. All numbers appear to have a slash through them like the new crest. Still awaiting word on if the bottom half of the numbers will be used as a window to teleport fans into and out of the world of mathematics.

I got a good look at them at the NYCFC unveiling today:

(Ignore the purplish color)

I like them. I liked the font before, and while I'm not usually a fan of making designs busier this works for me. They're certainly carrying the new branding forward.

Meanwhile, on this side of the Atlantic, Norn Iron have a new home shirt...

The design features a contrasting 'belt' like the recently unveiled Orlando City shirt. Something we'll be seeing on a few Adidas designs next season, then?

Very possibly.

I like this one, though, in part because of the pattern and in part because it's thinner than Orlando's big white leisure suit belt.

Serbia wore blue shorts and white socks together with their red home shirt today. Looked beautiful. That's what they should always wear, and not monochrome red.

I heard that the MLS is putting season ticket holders on jersey numbers, are they still doing that, and if so, for all jerseys or just a couple.

Marseilles pretty much just released what could have been a good NYCFC primary with their 4th kit:

I'm ready for Toronto FC to switch to the Academy badge full time. Any time now. Please?

Yeah it's a nice one, I particularly like the full "Toronto Football Club". While the current badge has never done much for me, it would be a pretty radical departure to adopt something close to the Academy crest now, and I can't see it happening. Also, where did the eagle come from?

Never knew about that academy logo until now. I think the eagle could be from Toronto's crest, but that may be a longshot.

Regardless of its origin, it looks very nice, although I wonder if people would say that it'd be too similar to DC United's eagle logo. I think that if remade right, it could be made into a new crest for the club without looking too much like DC.

In other news that Wales home kit looks nice.

Looks more like a good away kit for Houston I guess.

A bit more gold would have been nice too. Looks as if the collar has a bit of the gold, but nowhere else.

I have a feeling this large hem stripe might be adidas "thing" this coming year, kind of how the back shoulder stripe was last year.

Yeah, agreed on all of this.

I don't know, the more I look at this, the less I like it.

Socks have a thick white stripe at the top too to match?

The new MLS logo looks more professional on the jerseys. Up close I thought it was really boring, but I'm thinking it kinda works now! However, it still needs something soccer related in it. Serie A has the center of the pitch in their logo, Premier League and La Liga both have a ball, Bundesliga has a player silhouette, etc.
