Jersey Week 2014: FC Dallas say goodbye to hoops, introduce new all-red home kits
It's a new era at FC Dallas with club legend Oscar Pareja taking over as manager in 2014. And his return coincides with a brand new look for the club's primary home jersey.
Gone are the red-and-white hoops that characterized the home kit in recent years. It's all red now. Specifically, red on red.
The former hoops across the chest are now replaced by dark red horizontal stripes of varying widths. Eleven of the stripes are meant to represent the starting XI on the field.
The other features of the jersey include the "Dallas 'Til I Die" motto adopted by the club and its fans which is printed on the inside of the neck tape. The initials "LH" on the back neck honor former owner, the late Lamar Hunt.
Every MLS team is unveiling new jerseys as part of 2014 Jersey Week, which runs through March 7 in the lead-up to the start of the new season on Saturday, March 8.
