The Vancouver Whitecaps, along with all 25 other teams in Major League Soccer, unveiled new uniforms Wednesday evening in New York City.
Vancouver Jacob Tremblay modelled the new “Wave” jersey as part of New York Fashion Week, while players Inbeom Hwang, Ali Adnan, and Russell Teibert showcased the new kit at the official Whitecaps FC store in Gastown.
The Whitecaps will be rocking a double-blue kit, with subtle wave-like stripes — a nod to Vancouver’s flag, which is also featured on the jersey’s jock tag.
“The Wave jersey represents a reflection of Vancouver and the water that surrounds the city,” the Whitecaps announced in a media release.
The new royal blue kit replaces the steel-grey “Unity” jerseys, which have come to the end of their two-year run. The “Hoop” jerseys first unveiled last year will serve as the Whitecaps’ white uniforms once again this season.
Fans will get to see the new Wave jerseys, paired with “smoke blue” shorts, for the first time on February 29 during their home opener against Sporting Kansas City at BC Place.
