It’s finally here guys! Today marked the official launch of the brand new 2017 Orlando City SC home jersey and last week’s leak proved to be totally accurate.

A slick new look released in line with the Lions’ #ComingHome celebrations, Jason Kreis‘ side will competitively wear the jersey for the very first time against New York City FC in our 2017 MLS home opener.

What’s new?

This year, the 2017 Orlando City SC home jersey takes on much more of a casual look with Adidas incorporating heathered Adizero material.

This year, the jersey is the first ever Orlando City SC kit to incorporate a button-up collar, further underlining the casual aesthetic.

This year, the jersey features cut-off metallic gold Adidas stripes instead of extensive white material stripes.

This year, the jersey contains the co-ordinates of our brand new Orlando City Stadium (28.5410645°, -081.3890350°) on the base of the right sleeve.

This year, the jersey contains an Orlando City SC club crest that is raised with a metallic gold finish

This year, a white Orlando City SC lion head features in the bottom left hand corner of the jersey as the jocktag.

This year, Joe Bendik, Josh Saunders and co will wear a black Orlando City SC goalkeeper jersey instead of green with the colour of the away variation yet to be revealed.

Oh and this 2017 Major League Soccer campaign, it looks like Matías Pérez García has taken Adrian Winter‘s old squad number of 32 with the keen eyed amongst you spotting this in the launch video.

What’s been retained?

Well, the colour purple (obviously!) but aside from that, our Lion logo’s crown has been retained on the rear neckline with the words ‘Orlando City’ etched beneath it.

Additionally, Orlando Health continue to proudly sponsor Orlando City SC having enjoyed this role since the very beginning in 2011.
