D.C. United released a teaser video for their new primary jersey, set to be released on January 19 (the same day as the MLS SuperDraft).
At the end of the video, they give a quick tease of a part of the 2018 primary jersey, which we have isolated:
To my eye, that looks like the neck tag of the jersey, with the latitude and longitude of Audi Field printed on it. The diamond is, of course, a nod to the District of Columbia and its original shape (prior to the retrocession of land to Virginia) and is a cool nod to the entire region.
Launching a new stadium and a new primary jersey is a double whammy of expectations, but I am excited to see what they do with the new shirt. I liked the most recent primary shirt and hopefully it stays in that crisp, clean, and unmuddled vein.
What do you want to see on the new jersey (besides three stripes) and are you going to pick one up?
