The 2019 Hoop Jersey, crafted in conjunction with adidas, features the return of the wrap-around hoop made famous during the club’s NASL days. For the first time in the MLS era, the primary kit will feature a combination of white jersey, blue shorts, and white socks.

Authentic and women's versions of the hoop Jersey are now on sale at the Whitecaps' website. For the latest updates on jersey availability, sign up at whitecapsfc.com/1979 or follow the club on social media.

Vancouver is the third MLS team to unveil new 2019 kit, joining the New England Revolution and Chicago Fire.
