Philadelphia Union revealed their new 2019 secondary jersey. The alternate jersey features the first-ever-in-MLS customizable back tags in honor of the club’s 10th season. The jersey is a simple navy and white color scheme that showoffs a radial design that begins from the signature snake logo on the lower left hip.
“We’re a club founded by fans and we wanted these kits to reflect that in our 10th season,” said Doug Vosik, Union Senior Vice President of Marketing and Communications. “It’s fitting that we found inspiration for a design directly from our supporter group, the Sons of Ben, and fans. Over the years, the Sons of Ben have used sun radial designs frequently in their tifos, in addition to their in-stadium street art mural, a fan-favorite photo moment on game day. To honor all fans, we invited them into the design process by enabling them to vote on hundreds of back tag designs to decide on the final ten options for the secondary jersey.”
We see three stripes lining the sides of the jersey that now replace the color blocked navy siding for a clean design. The Bimbo’s partnership with the Union remains seen across the chest of the jersey, while the logo has been changed to a monochromatic navy.
