While the status of the MLS Season remains mired in uncertainty with mere weeks remaining until the season itself kicks off, one of the staples of the league's preseason will continue as planned: jersey week. A favourite for many supporters, the annual event means the unveiling of new kits for the majority of MLS sides.
All 20 MLS teams will go into the season with at least one new kit, as New York City FC, DC United and Vancouver Whitecaps have already officially released their new uniforms. Jersey week will begin on February 28 with the Montreal Impact and ends on March 7 with Toronto FC.
The Toronto FC event is being held the same day that they are expected to kick off the season against the Vancouver Whitecaps at BC Place. It will be held between 4:30- 9:00 PM EST at Fountain Blu, which is in close proximity to BMO Field. One would presume the event will also serve as a viewing party for the match set to kick off at 6:00 PM.
On Waking The Red and elsewhere, the potential Toronto FC home jersey that was leaked has already been displayed. Here is a photo of Sebastian Giovinco modelling what is believed to be the 2015 Toronto FC home kit, complete with BMO sponsorship across the front.
Here is a complete schedule of MLS club kit releases, and which kits they will be releasing. The San Jose Earthquakes are the only club who have yet to set a date for their release.
