This is the new Orlando City away kit 2016, Orlando City SC’s new alternate strip for the upcoming MLS season. Made by Adidas, the kit was unveiled by the club after open practice on 9 February, 2016. Orlando’s best known player is Brazilian star Kaka, the former Milan and Real Madrid playmaker.
The 2015 season was Orlando’s first in Major League Soccer and the club finished seventh in their conference and fourteenth overall.
Like last season, the new away jersey for 2016 is predominantly white, but feature purple sleeves this time around. The Adidas stripes, also purple in colour, move to the sides of the jersey. The club crest, featuring their trademark lion, is in 3D on the front of the shirt.
Inside the collar, the words “Defy Expectations” are written in three languages- English, Spanish and Portuguese (Superando las Expectativas and Superando Expectativas) to reflect the diversity in the club’s fan base
The lion also finds its way on the back of the neck, as can be seen in the pics below.
Orlando Health are again principal sponsors
The shirt will be produced in both authentic and replica versions and will be first seen in action when Orlando take on New York City in the second fortnight of March 2016 (March 18 to be precise)
