It’s just over a week (Wednesday, Feb. 5) until MLS reveals its new jerseys for the 2020 season. As part of the league’s historic 25th Season Celebration, the new kits will be unveiled in advance of New York City’s Fashion Week and feature a commemorative design that’s integrated throughout MLS.
While the jerseys will all feature a new name and number font that’s “a dynamic, energetic and bold graphic typeface that introduces a layering tri-line effect,” the biggest visual motif is the placement of the adidas three stripes on one shoulder of the uniform.
This look has already been revealed by the LA Galaxy, who got a special sort of green light due to the Chicharito signing.

MLS also released a video on Tuesday that teased the entire concept and provided us with a couple quick glimpses of the uniforms. If you slow it down frame by frame towards the end, some of them look pretty exciting. (More exciting than the leaks I'm about to show you.)

Other clubs have already teased their upcoming threads, including Minnesota United — are the Loons about to bring back the beloved “wing” design from their NASL days?

#MLS' 2020 kits are beginning to leak out - here's Colorado's get-up. #DCU fans: DC's will be exactly like this, but primarily black. There's a thick band of red trim on the bottom of both sleeves. Saw it a while back and actually kinda liked it. pic.twitter.com/QZgpEwfOPf— Pablo Maurer (@MLSist) December 19, 2019
