Austin FC’s secondary look is official.
Coined the “Legends Jersey” ahead of their 2021 entry to Major League Soccer, the jersey has a white base with bright verde accents and supporter-created features. The jersey celebrates Austin FC’s early supporters who helped build the club from the ground up.
“Austin FC is driven by our fans,” Andy Loughnane, Austin FC president, said in a release. “In particular, our supporters were instrumental in making this Club a reality. Now that we’re on the threshold of our first season, we honor these supporters as legends with a jersey dedicated to them.”
The jersey features a matching green YETI logo on the front chest, as well as matching green player letters and numbers on the back. A custom jock tag honors Austin Anthem, the club’s first supporters’ group. Austin Anthem also designed the neck tape, which includes icons of a record, taco, calavera, trumpet, guitar, food truck, soccer cleat, bat and the Texas Capitol building.
The secondary jersey will be utilized during the 2021 season, then cycled out and a newly-designed secondary jersey will be introduced for the 2022 and 2023 seasons. Austin FC previously launched its primary jersey in November and has since broken jersey sale numbers.
“Austin FC’s secondary jersey features design elements exclusively created by Club supporters, and the incorporation of bright verde elements throughout the front and back of the jersey allows the Club to continue establishing a core component of our identity,” Loughnane said. “The 2021 secondary jersey will serve as a complement to the record-setting 2021-2022 primary jersey, while being consistent with MLS Clubs who feature a similar adidas EQT design across both the 2020 and 2021 seasons.”
