Jersey Week 2014: Real Salt Lake's new home kits carry club's motto
Look no further than the new Real Salt Lake home jersey to see the indelible mark left by RSL's former manager Jason Kreis.
The 2013 MLS Cup and US Open Cup finalists unveiled their new look on Tuesday night at a season-ticket holder event held at Rio Tinto Stadium.
The standout features of the 2014 Claret-and-Cobalt primary kit? First, the gold "crown bar" across the chest which extends to the sleeves. There's also a new jersey front partner in LifeVantage, which was first announced as the new sponsor last October.
But what will remind RSL fans of the most successful manager in club history is "The TEAM is the Star" motto coined by Kreis and stll-GM Garth Lagerwey that appears on the neck tape. That saying has become part of the club's identity.
As with many of the new 2014 jerseys, RSL's also has a "lenticular" 3-D like crest on the front. The crown from the logo is replicated on the back of the jersey.
Every MLS team is unveiling new jerseys as part of 2014 Jersey Week, which is being held from March 3-7 in the lead-up to the start of the new season on Saturday, March 8.
