Orlando City will celebrate six of their players with unique jerseys that tell the players' stories and identities. Instead of players' names, the back of the jerseys will have the players' nicknames, with further design elements on the back and right sleeve of the jersey adding to the storytelling.
The players are some of Orlando's most reliable during a so far successful 2020 MLS season — captain Nani, goalkeeper Pedro Gallese, defenders Ruan and Robin Jansson, midfielder Junior Urso, and forward Chris Mueller. The kits are currently on sale at Orlando City's online shop — you can check out some photos and the team's descriptions of each below:
Junior Urso's Moniker Player Kit | Orlando City SC
Orlando City's Brazilian bear is a box-to-box menace, blasting in goals on one end and mauling opposing attackers on the other. His nickname comes not only from his play, but from his signature hairstyle.
Ruan Moniker Player Kit | Orlando City SC
Now you see him, now you don't. There isn't a player in MLS who can defend Ruan one-on-one, and the Orlando City right back is known to fly past opponents before they even see him coming. Don't blink!
Robin Jansson Moniker Player Kit | Orlando City SC
Opposing strikers dare not tread on Orlando City's Swedish center back. Robin Jansson is a colossus at the back, turning away forwards with a swing of his mighty hammer. Or, as you know, a well-timed crunching tackle.
Pedro Gallese Moniker Player Kit | Orlando City SC
Scoring on El Pulpo is about as easy as finding a needle in a haystack. HIs seemingly limitless tentacles snare shots from all directions. Penalty kicks, point blank reactions, it doesn't matter-the Octopus has it covered.
Nani Moniker Player Kit | Orlando City SC
Orlando City's fearless leader was one of Europe's most dynamic players with Manchester United, and he's taken MLS by storm since arriving in the City Beautiful. Nani's skill and command of the team are matched perhaps only by his backflips which he picked up from practicing the Afro-Brazilian martial art capoeira.
Chris Mueller Moniker Player Kit | Orlando City SC
Whenever the ball goes to Chris Mueller, it's money in the bank. Mueller's been cashing checks and making defenders hit the deck since 2018.
