FC Dallas Unveils the Legacy Kit for 2020 Season
New York, NY - FC Dallas revealed its 2020 Legacy kit tonight at a fashion show in Midtown Manhattan with YouTube sensations and Texas natives Dude Perfect walking the runway to unveil the uniform. FC Dallas' adidas-designed kit was influenced by the club's distinction as one of the founding members of Major League Soccer.
"This kit reflects our legacy as one of the original clubs that helped launch MLS in 1996," said FC Dallas President Dan Hunt. "The jersey is a nod to previous renditions and one that I think will be a fan favorite for years to come."
The kit honors FC Dallas' legacy by showcasing Dallas' blue and red colors in a way that evoke previous kit designs but with a modern take on the popular hoop theme.
Other design elements include:
The Texas state flag is proudly presented on the back neckline of the jersey, signifying FC Dallas' legacy as the original MLS team of Texas.
The LH patch moves to the base of the hem on the front of the jersey. This symbolic placement honors Lamar Hunt's legacy as a founding member of not just FC Dallas but MLS, as well.
As a charter club of Major League Soccer, FC Dallas' Legacy jersey features the Founding Club mark of nine silver stars located inside the drop hem of the jersey. This is only on the authentic jerseys of the nine clubs that remain from MLS' inaugural year.
The left shoulder features MLS 25th celebratory logo, which will only be used during the 2020 season.
The jersey also features a new font. The official MLS name and number jersey font is a dynamic, energetic and bold graphic typeface that introduces a layering tri-line effect.
AdvoCare continues to serve as FC Dallas' official jersey sponsor, a position it has held since 2012. Their corporate wordmark is displayed across the chest of the jersey in white text.
The jersey will be paired with blue shorts throughout the season.
