The Chicago Red Stars released a new custom jersey honoring their city with "The Neighborhood Kit." ( "Kit," in this case, refers to sports clothing. )
Chicago unveiled its secondary jersey for the 2020 National Women's Soccer League ( NWSL ) season completely virtually to a record 1,000 attendees.
Supporters came together with Red Stars players and staff for a unique digital experience designed to unite the group around the city and team they love. In addition to being the first people to see the new kit, participants heard from Owner and CEO Arnim Whisler as well as Red Stars 2019 World Cup champions Julie Ertz, Alyssa Naeher, Morgan Brian and Tierna Davidson. The evening ended on a high note as attendees re-lived some of the most epic moments in Red Stars history.
The names of all 77 neighborhoods that make up the Chicagoland area create the iconic blue stripes that sandwich the famous stars across the kit's chest. The blue stripe design was resurrected following positive fan feedback.
The Neighborhood Kit will be Chicago's secondary jersey for the 2020 NWSL season. Visit shopredstars.com/CRS_Official_Store/shop/home .
