Philadelphia Union Home Shirt 2016
The flagship club for an east coast city steeped in sporting tradition,
With heat transfer elements and advanced climacool® technology, this 100% polyester jersey ensures the Union benefits are in no short supply, while reflecting the professional image worn in matches at Talen Energy Stadium.
Conceptually one of this season’s most courageous designs, the reimagined Union home kit takes a bite out of the rulebook to spit out a sublimely-subtle snakeskin style.
With a reptilian symbol adorning its outside neck, a majestic, metallic rattlesnake on its frontal jock tag accentuates one the strongest MLS brands; as inspired by Benjamin Franklin’s famous ‘Join or Die’ cartoon in the Philadelphia Gazette.
Paying homage to the Revolutionary War, its navy blue and gold colour scheme emulates that of the Continental Army, while the shirt bears the slogan WE ARE ONE on its inside neck; completing a fusion of old and new, ready-made for stars like Maurice Edu.
