With the recent additions of local products like former MLS MVP Mike Magee, Mikey Stephens, Eric Gehrig, Patrick Doody, Chris Ritter and Harry Shipp, the Chicago Fire clearly take pride in representing the Chicago area.
The club takes that commitment to a new level with the Monday unveiling of its new secondary kit for the 2015 season, which they'll debut on March 22 at San Jose. According to the club, they're scheduled to wear it 14 times over the 34-game regular season schedule.
The new Fire shirt keeps with the hometown theme, featuring a light blue bar across the chest borrowed from the City of Chicago flag. The full version of that flag is located on the back neck of the jersey with the words "Chicago Fire Soccer Club" printed inside the blue bars (below).
Among the other features of the kit is the new-look MLS logo on the left sleeve as well as the inside neck tape which features the club's long-time slogan: "Tradition, Honor, Passion."
