Tuesday night, the New England Revolution revealed its new primary adidas kits at a special event for fans at Royale at Royale Night Club in Boston

The Revolution’s new uniform, designed by the Revolution and adidas and including fan input, features a simple dark navy jersey with a larger logo for the team’s official jersey partner, United Healthcare and three red stripes down both shoulders of the jersey. Additionally, this jersey incorporates the Flag of New England between the shoulders on the back and the club's birthday
“New England EST 1996” printed on the inside neck of the jersey.

The white shorts display three red stripes down the sides and the blue socks have thin horizontal white lines down the leg. The striped socks represent the six separate states that join New England together with a common identity.

“The Flag of New England is also a key icon for our club, one which our supporters have been instrumental in growing," said Revolution president Brian Bilello. "Unlike some teams that have their key icon or identifier on the ‘jock tag’ on the lower seam of the jersey, we were insistent that the flag be very visible and somewhere that everyone could see. And there is no better place than right above the players’ names and numbers – reminding everyone that they’re all part of New England.

'New England EST. 1996' printed into the jersey’s neck is one of the last things the Revolution players see before pulling the jersey over their heads. One of the original MLS clubs, launched in 1996, the Revolution represents the region’s soccer fans and is a reminder that the Revs players play for them as they dress for a match."

The new 2014 jersey is scheduled to debut in competition this Saturday, March 8, when the Revs open the season at Houston.

Authentic jerseys are $120, while replica jerseys are $85. Women’s and children’s versions are also available. All jerseys can be customized with names and numbers for an additional fee of $20 through the Gillette Stadium ProShop.

The team’s secondary uniform – an all-white design with red accents and navy stripes – will be used for the third straight season this year, but the updated UnitedHealthcare logo will adorn this year’s white jerseys. The Revolution is scheduled to debut new secondary jerseys in 2015.

Primary and secondary kits are used in two-year cycles. The Revolution’s primary kit is scheduled to be updated in even years, while the secondary kit is scheduled for odd years.
