Bizarre new shirt sponsor for LAFC:


No argument here. FLEX seems like a pretty niche company/product line to be securing an American pro soccer jersey sponsorship. Apparently, here in the United States, they're largely a source of grinders, polishers, and sanders to a customer base that's predominantly comprised of businesses that employ such hardware. Further, while still headquartered in Germany, they've been owned by a Chinese holding company - Chervon - for nearly a decade. Chervon does have an American presence, with their North American headquarters located in Naperville, Illinois.

Yeah, just came to post this, but ew. At least the sponsor is in gold, like last years YoutubeTV but that’s a weird one. 

 

Gonna feel like a gym dude bro if I buy a new kit.

It is a weird switch from YouTube. That said, I have seen Flex products in real life physical stores, which is more than I can say for about half of other MLS shirt sponsors, so whatever.

Toronto just finally unveiled their new primary after it was leaked weeks ago by Jozy:

Decent effort overall. The pattern isn’t the most original, but I like the increased use of dark grey. Not feeling the dark grey socks, though. Also, that Condivo collar is especially bad when it’s a contrasting color.

If they wanted it to not be all red, gray shorts/red socks would look better than red shorts/gray socks. Regardless, less monochrome in MLS is always a good thing.

I think in this case, having a different color on the collar is necessary. With the body of the jersey being red with an intricate pattern, I think it would look weird if it transitioned into a solid red collar. It would draw more attention to the abrupt end of the pattern than it does with a contrasting collar.

Oh I agree, it was the right choice to go with a dark grey collar. I just don’t like the choice to go with that specific collar style. I would’ve gone with a regular v-neck collar and made it dark grey with red piping to match the cuffs.

I like that a lot more than I thought I would, actually. The collar bothers me less here than on other kits and the pattern looks sharp.

For those curious, that Charlotte FC event was the launch of the adidas training gear:

The emphasis on black is disappointing but one can hope that the actual launch kit next year is better.

Toronto FC Introduce 2021-22 Home ‘A41’ Kit

March 21, 2021 - 17:01 PM

Major League Soccer outfit Toronto FC officially unveiled their new home kit for the 2021-22 season on Saturday on social media — confirming a design that had been inadvertently leaked by one of their players about a month ago.. The club is calling this the “A41” kit, an abbreviation of

The Rapids are set to unveil their new secondary kit on Tuesday; here’s a mockup of what it could look like with the rumored color scheme:

I suspect there’ll be a bit more to it than this, but I think this gives a pretty good idea of what to expect with the colors.

A very generic start for the CLT commanders. Don’t get me wrong, it looks fine, but so do regular old Adidas tracksuits.

Do all of the training kits in MLS use that collar? I know trying to remind everyone you're there is important, but you're announcing training gear? Seeing as the youth squads are using black and white, I'm expecting the senior team will be doing the same.

Assuming you’re talking about the shirt with the henley collar in the second picture, that’s actually the travel/coaches polo for this year. The training shirts for this year all have this collar:

As for these pieces of training gear solely using black and white, as well as the kits for the youth teams, I wouldn’t read too much into that at all. These pieces are straight out of the catalog, and the youth team kits are just basic teamwear. Adidas doesn’t really offer any teamwear with a shade of blue like CLT’s, so not a surprise to see them in black and white for now. It’s very possible, if not likely, that CLT will have a black primary kit when they start play next year (though I hope not), but I think you can expect to see a good deal of blue when they have the fully custom kits and gear like anthem jackets and travel hoodies.

Colorado is using the Portland collar/buttons. Much much more WHITE than it is green/mint on the light color section.
Sleeve trim has no extra white color. Just one-color in the darker green. MLS logo is mostly white/mint, so inverse of what's here.

the white/mint has a pattern inside it like Minnesota's does. the shape is similar to RSL's current home:

or something like this mockup:

Again, no color, just the baked in pattern/texture. It looks very topographical.

Atlanta makes the AT&T sleeve patch official. This means they will continue with two sleeve patches (the other being Piedmont Healthcare) and have no MLS patch. The only positive I can say is that at least all sponsors continue to be gold and match the rest of the kit.
