LA Galaxy have revealed their third shirt for the 2011 MLS season.
The new jersey, designed by Adidas, looks black in the photo but is actually a dark blue (or, as LA Galaxy are calling it, a dark blur color called “Punjab”). The trim of the shirt is in gold (LA Galaxy refer to it as “Light Oil Gold,” no joke).
“We looked at several options for our third jersey and in the end we all ended up agreeing on the same final design and color scheme. We were especially proud to see the color gold, which has been a constant throughout our club’s history, is so prominent in this new jersey,” Galaxy President Tom Payne said.
“To create the LA Galaxy’s third kit, we embraced two of the most iconic elements of Los Angeles – L.A. fashion and Hollywood style,” said Ernesto Bruce, MLS Category Manager for adidas. “The sleek dark Punjab highlights Los Angeles style and fashion and the Light Old Gold gives the jersey a historic feel. The LA Galaxy’s July 4 match versus the Sounders is the perfect time to debut this new kit.”
The game on July 4 between LA Galaxy and Seattle Sounders will kick off at 7:30 p.m. and will be broadcast live nationally on ESPN2.

Personally, as long as they call it black and gold instead of “Punjab” and “Light Oil Gold,” I think it’s fine. It’s a well designed shirt and definitely is something that looks fashionable to wear whether it’s on the soccer field or as casual wear.
