Orlando City SC unveiled their new primary kit ahead of the 2021 MLS season on Friday. The Thick N Thin kit celebrates and is inspired by Orlando's fervent, unwavering and resilient fanbase.
“This isn’t just a jersey for the team to wear on the field. This is a jersey for our fans to wear proudly, here in Orlando or wherever they may be, that represents the dedication and strength of our community,” Orlando City SC Chief Executive Officer Alex Leitão said in a team release. “Orlando has been tested, both on the field at Exploria Stadium and out in our neighborhoods, but each time we come together and come out stronger on the other side. We’re proud to be a fabric that binds this city together, something that our fans can rely on in tough times, and this kit is a thank you to everyone who has supported us no matter the circumstances, through Thick N Thin.”
The Thick N Thin kit features dark and light shades of purple that separate the top and bottom halves of the jersey, referencing the old and the new, while the thick and thin lines mark transition and celebrate the loyalty of those who wear it. Found on the back of the neck is the state of Florida flag, while the Jock Tag is home to the phrase “Through Thick & Thin”.
Once again prominently displayed across the front of the jersey is the Club’s presenting partner and Official Medical Team, Orlando Health. This season will mark the 11th-consecutive year of partnership, across seven MLS and four USL campaigns, that Orlando Health is featured on both the Orlando City home and away kits.
