FC Dallas’ new home kit draws inspiration from the iconic Lone Star state flag to deliver a clean, modern aesthetic for 2018 and 2019. The adidas-designed kit is full of bold, Texas-themed symbolism.
The jersey features red, white and blue color-blocking inspired by the Texas flag.
AdvoCare has been a proud sponsor of FC Dallas’ jersey since 2012. The company’s corporate wordmark is showcased across the chest of the jersey in white text set against the red front panel.
Again, taking design inspiration from the Texas flag, the left sleeve features a five-pointed white star with the initials “LH” printed inside the star. This pays homage to FC Dallas founder, Lamar Hunt, whose bold vision paved the way for soccer in North America.
The right sleeve features the customary MLS patch.
Along the back neckline, you’ll find a stylized version of “Pride of Texas” which features a star in place of the letter “X”.
The jersey features a curved hem, a departure from a straight-line hem. This allows for more player movement in the slim-fit jersey.
The adidas “Authentic” hologram label on the right front hem identifies the jersey as an authentic adidas garment worn on-pitch by FC Dallas players in a specific season.
The shorts complete the clean silhouette in matching FC Dallas red punctuated by the FCD shield on the right leg.
The socks offer a sharp contrast with a bold pop of navy in the leg. The cuff clings to the leg, showcasing striking red bands alternating with three horizontal white hoops.
If you look closely at the front panel of the jersey, you will see subtle horizontal striping. These are tiny mesh imprints in the fabric itself. The bands of mesh imprints alternate with bands of unaltered fabric, resulting in an understated hoops effect which is a nod to the iconic hoops design.
