Toronto FC unveiled the team’s new secondary jersey for its 14th season at an exclusive Major League Soccer (MLS) and adidas launch event as part of Fashion Week in New York City yesterday.
MLS and adidas collectively revealed all 26 clubs’ 2020 jersey designs in a single moment celebrating the league’s commemorative 25th season. Toronto-based OVO Sound and R&B duo Majid Jordan (Majid Al Maskati and Jordan Ullman) modelled the “Unity Kit” on the runway at the star-studded “FORWARD25” event at New York's Penn Plaza Pavilion.
“We believe our city’s diversity and passion are captured in our Unity Kit,” said Bill Manning, President, Toronto FC. “We hope our fans will proudly wear the jersey during what we expect to be another exciting season.”
The 2020 “Unity Kit” showcases the team’s diverse fanbase, while also incorporating a modern v-neck design bringing style and freshness to the kit. The team’s primary crest is prominent at the heart of the jersey with a silver star above the crest representing the team’s 2017 MLS Cup Championship. The back of the jersey features the flag of Toronto highlighting its strong connection to the city the team calls home.
In a subtle nod to 28 surrounding cities and regions within the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) where fans embark on BMO Field to cheer on the Reds, the jersey’s jock tag includes inscriptions of Ajax, Aurora, Brampton, Brock, Burlington, Caledon, Clarington, East Gwillimbury, Etobicoke, Georgina, Halton Hills, King, Markham, Milton, Mississauga, Newmarket, North York, Oakville, Oshawa, Pickering, Richmond Hill, Scarborough, Scugog, Toronto, Uxbridge, Vaughan, Whitby and Whitchurch-Stouffville, which are visible under “ALL FOR ONE” – the football club’s motto. The jersey also features a new interlocking jacquard stripe design representing the cultural diversity of the GTA coming together in the spirit of uniting as “All For One.”
