Iconic Kits: Sporting Kansas City State Line

Pushing the limits on jersey design. That's what Sporting KC is known for. 

 

Elevated by the arrival of the Ivy Investments logo, this smash hit showcased the team’s Sporting Blue and Dark Indigo colors through an asymmetrical design that emphasized the state line brand element, which was introduced during the club’s rebrand in 2010. The state line represented the shared border between Kansas and Missouri, with Sporting Kansas City having strong ties to both sides of the state line.

 

 

Bold design aside, Sporting fans would agree that the most iconic thing about this kit is the team wearing it when they won MLS Cup in 2013. Still holding the record for the coldest game in MLS history, Sporting KC brought home the Cup after a dramatic 10 round penalty kick shootout. 

 

Trends change, but this iconic kit will be a fan favorite for years to come.
