Sporting Kansas City release new third kit ahead of Portland Timbers match

Argyle? Yes, argyle.

Sporting Kansas City released their new, argyle-banded third kit in a most proactive way: They donned them and took to the field for their home match against the Portand Timbers on Saturday night.

In addition to the Timbers match, the third kit will be worn in select CONCACAF Champions League and US Open Cup matches.

But if you ask John Moncke, Sporting Kansas City's Vice President of Stadium and Brand Revenue, its on-field application is just a bonus.

"Our in-house brand team set out to create a kit that blurs the line between fashion and sports," he said in a statement. "This jersey looks just as good with denim as it does on the field. You can wear this out, and people won't think you have a soccer jersey on."

"We think that if you have a conversation about the coolest kits in the world, then our third kit should be a part of that dialogue," Moncke added.
