MLS Kits, 2020

Crew wearing black for MLS cup, kind of expected but still. very disappointed. Not only do I think the crew should wear their iconic all yellow for mls cup but I also think it would clash against Seattle's green.

I kinda expected thisūü§¨¬†As little as people have seen Seattle's secondary kit, also black, this would've been a good time to show it off.¬†

MLS: Columbus Crew SC at Seattle Sounders FC

In fact, they've already done yellow vs green this year.

Doesn't the home team get to choose?

That really sucks. Especially since when they last won the Cup, they did so in yellow.

They were in yellow the last time they lost the Cup, though, too (in 2015). And that’s their most recent Cup appearance before this one.

MLS decides but teams can petition to wear one kit or the other.

Just curious. Has Columbus ever mixed around it's black and yellow kit parts? Like have they ever gone B/Y/B, Y/B/Y, B/B/Y, etc.

Yes, but very rarely. This was 2009 Champions League.

They wear Y/B/Y for Champions league and US open cup

this should not have happened!

 

But, I guess the Crew have ceded yellow to Nashville after all. Interesting.

New championship designation system coming next season. I like the champions patch.

How many of these have we gone through, now? I prefer the patch to wacky mathematics with star symbols, at least.

MLS has the say, personally I think it should be the team designating a home kit and then the league only intervening when there's an issue between the kits. They also need to tell adidas that they need third kits as well. Not just for a couple teams, for everyone.

 

As far as champions badges, I think we're technically on number four since it started with the scudetto, then two different types of star patterns. I guess they're going with silver because of the 25th anniversary, but why not use gold? I also liked when the league champs got a different ball, normally silver, to play with from everyone else.

Yeah I could care less about the stars. Nobody remembers the system and I think few really care.

I agree. Of course the champion’s fans would buy up new merchandise and possibly New Jersey’s as well with this change.

The only reason adidas and MLS have two types of jerseys for sale is to get people who want the stars on the kits to pay more.

To be fair, if Columbus wins, I might buy the jersey. Unfortunately the better looking kit won't be the one that would be available.

So is it the big Adidas shoulder stripes that are being prioritized? Allegedly that league wide element was a nod to this MLS25 season, so maybe they wanted both teams showing off that look for the season finale? Whatever the reason, I'd much prefer the Crew in yellow. 

 

I was at the sounders-crew game earlier this year (last game before everything got really covidy) and I remember commenting that I didn't expect yellow v. rave green to work, but it did. There was plenty of contrast. And it wasn't the first time the two clubs had gone with that uniform matchup, so the black kit isn't necessarily clash related (although, yes, it does provide additional contrast).

Since seeing the abomination that was the All Star jersey for this year, I'm pretty sure that's the case.
