New home and away jerseys for 2013 season to be unveiled on Feb. 27 at Cinerama

MLS Logo.jpgMLS announced information Monday morning on a “Jersey Week” later this month, when new jerseys for 12 teams will be unveiled from Feb. 25-28.

Sounders FC is scheduled to have a new home and away jersey for the upcoming season, and they will be seen for the first time on Feb. 27 at a private event at Cinerama downtown.

A possible away jersey for Seattle was leaked on the internet a couple weeks ago.

Jersey Week will become an annual thing in MLS. Starting next year, all 19 teams will have a new jersey to unveil every year.

Here is more information from the league:

Every year will see a new thematic. This year’s theme, “Jersey as Art,” will allow clubs to share the story behind the making of their new jersey with their supporters and will focus on the art and detail that went into the collaborative process with adidas, MLS’ exclusive uniform supplier.

“Soccer supporters are extremely passionate about everything involving their club,” said Maribeth Towers, senior vice president of consumer products for MLS, in a news release. “But the jersey might be first and foremost. It is the crest that is closest to their heart. Jersey Week will celebrate the soccer jersey. Every stitch, every minor detail, every shade is designed in collaboration between the club and our partner at adidas. We’re excited to unveil Jersey Week for our supporters.”

There are teasers images on MLSgear.com, and it appears Seattle will be sticking with rave green and shale as the two colors. More details on the local events will be announced soon.
