Partner executives, Austin Bold FC players and coaches, and fans came together at Dell Seton Medical Center at The University of Texas for the official partnership announcement and debut of the club's jerseys. The striking jerseys are inspired by Central Texas' golden sun rays and turquoise waterways and incorporate the iconic Austin Bold FC and Ascension Seton logos. The jerseys mirror the lively and truly unique spirit of the Austin community - they are Austin born and Austin bold.
"We worked very deliberately with our team to create a custom design of our first-ever USL kit, as we want the jersey to have a distinctive yet classic look that represents our brand and prominently displays our partner Ascension Seton," said Austin Bold FC General Manager, Roberto Silva. "We are very proud of this partnership and how it not only benefits our players, but the Austin community. We can't wait for our team take the field this weekend wearing these kits."
