There’s been a big fuss in the soccer blogosphere last week and this week about the new name for the Kansas City MLS team, Sporting Kansas City. The vast majority of bloggers hate it but the opposition to it seems to be because it “smells” European rather than anything else. Personally, I like it. It’s far better than Kansas City Wiz and Kansas City Wizards. The logo and colors are more modern. But more importantly, it gives the team owners a chance to re-market the team with a new look and a new philosophy.
Speaking of a new look, Sporting Kansas City has unveiled their new home and away jerseys for the 2011 MLS season. Pictured above is the home jersey which is designed and manufactured by Adidas, features the new logo and is blue with dark blue trim.
And here’s a picture of the new away jersey for Sporting Kansas City:
The away jersey for Sporting Kansas City is dark blue with light blue trim. It also features a raised texture near the club crest.
