Minnesota United to Unveil New Jerseys

by on 8 February 2017

For now, the MLS Fantasy Soccer page has Minnesota United playing in Hanes cotton, white jerseys. With the MLS season less than a month away, fans have been unsure of what their team may look like next season. The wait will soon be over, as the team expects to unveil their jerseys late next week.

The Loons will be decked out by Adidas for the first time. Previously, the club has been been outfitted by Inaria and Admiral. Adidas designs the kits for all MLS clubs.

A truncated planning time for United meant that the custom wing designs from previous years was not going to be possible for this year’s design. Instead, the kit will be much more “off the shelf.” According to one source, who offered a subjective opinion, this does not necessarily mean that the jerseys will lack aesthetic flair. The source added that fans may be pleasantly pleased.

The jersey will also feature a prominent sponsor for the first time in United’s history. Target announced their sponsorship of the club in January.

The unveiling comes two weeks before the Loons kick off the MLS season with an away matchup against the Portland Timbers. The club is hoping that they will have jerseys ready to sell at their home opener a week later on March 12.
