LOS ANGELES - In celebration of Major League Soccer's first season in 1996, today the LA Galaxy and the League announced a retro-inspired apparel collaboration - Since '96 - with global fashion licensees Mitchell & Ness, the nation's leading nostalgia company, and New Era. Featuring 10 additional clubs, the throwback line of clothing is an ode to MLS' launch and commemorates the League's original clubs, along with additional participating clubs.
The Since '96 collection features a Mitchell & Ness polo, sublimed mesh jersey, '90s color-blocked hoodie, a windbreaker jacket, and long-sleeve shirt, as well as four types of hats from New Era: the 950 Jersey Hook, 2930 Ripped, 920 Fan Fave, and the Winter Knit.
"After an amazing 25 years of Major League Soccer, we're honored to launch our Since '96 retro collaboration to celebrate the Clubs that laid the League's foundation for its explosive growth," said Carter Ladd, MLS SVP.
Featuring 11 total clubs - LA Galaxy, Colorado Rapids, Columbus Crew, New England Revolution, Dallas Burn (FC Dallas), D.C. United, Seattle Sounders, The Wiz (Sporting Kansas City), Vancouver 86ers (Whitecaps), Portland Timbers, and San Jose Clash (Earthquakes) - the collection will feature an embossed 'since '96' hangtag. Clubs established in 1996 will also have a 'founding club' embellishment on the garment.
"As the leading sports nostalgic company, Mitchell & Ness is thrilled to be a part of the initial re-launch of the throwback MLS logos," Kevin Wulff, Mitchell & Ness CEO. "Fans have waited 20+ years to see these marks reintroduced, and we can't wait to deliver this authentic product to market."
