The Columbus Crew SC unveiled a new kit for the 2016 campaign Wednesday.
The new kit, known as “For Columbus,” was inspired by the Columbus City flag. The jersey’s color scheme is the same of those used in the flag.
There are 17 stars in the neck tape representing Ohio being the 17th state admitted to the Union.
The city seal of Columbus is also placed inside the jersey, behind the chest badge and facing the heart.
Other jersey features include a prominent golden tone in the center, symbolic of Crew SC's heritage, the Columbus Crew SC wordmark on the back-neck inset and a textured/raised ink Crew SC badge.
