Major League side DC United have unveiled their new adidas secondary shirt for the 2021 Major League Soccer (MLS) season.
The marble pattern is representative of the iconic national monuments found in Washington, D.C. Marble is renowned for its strength and resilience; attributes that are constantly personified by the residents of the nation’s capital. Marble is also known for its individuality and diversity – no slab of marble is the same – and that is what makes it beautiful.
The jersey will also feature a Red, White, and Blue color scheme, rather than the familiar black and red. As the nation’s capital, the city is often viewed as a representation of the United States.
Following a year defined by hardship, the importance of staying United is even more important and D.C. United are honored to represent the city and the American people symbolically through their colors each time the club steps onto the field.
The new red, white, and blue color scheme found in the Marble Jersey pays tribute to the national significance of Washington, D.C., an embodiment of the American people. A city, like the nation it represents, is rich in culture and the promise of opportunity.
Supporters will also look back fondly to 1998 when United last had a Red-White-and-Blue color scheme with the iconic jersey dubbed “the Cat in the Hat” kit.
The jersey release video demonstrates the incredible diversity in the District, while also celebrating and highlighting individuals who have gone above and beyond to provide joy, food, security, art, and much more for their neighbors in the city. A true tribute to the club’s “Unite the District” mission.
