Earthquakes Unveil 2021 First Star Kit
SAN JOSE, Calif. - The San Jose Earthquakes today unveiled their First Star kit for the 2021 Major League Soccer season. The jersey is a modern take on the team's look from 2000-02, in which the team returned to its original name Earthquakes from the Clash in 2000 and later won its first MLS Cup championship in 2001. The team's victory in MLS Cup 2001 is forever remembered and celebrated as the first of two stars above the team's crest.
The 2021 kit is the Quakes' first with a primarily blue color scheme since 2016, snapping a four-year run of black jerseys. The adidas-made kit, which draws on a lighter blue than currently part of the team's color pattern, also contains white and black accents throughout, including white lettering, white stripes on the shoulders and a thick white bar with black outlines down both side seams. The jersey features a back neckline that reads '2001 MLS Cup Champions' and a lower-left jock tag with the date of the team's first MLS Cup victory - Oct. 21, 2001.
The kit includes black shorts and blues socks, both inspired by the cup-winning side 20 years prior.
