Atlanta United officially unveiled their new primary kit for the 2019 season on Friday. The “Stars & Stripes” kit was finally made official in front of several thousands of fans at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
The new kit ditches the “Five Stripes” theme and adds a few more stripes along with the star above the crest that signifies the club’s MLS Cup triumph.
“We’re truly excited about the ‘Star & Stripes’ kit as it blends our iconic stripes alongside a championship star, something we’re proud to have accomplished in just our second season,” Atlanta United Club President Darren Eales said. “While the star represents what we’ve already accomplished, the kit also shows a glimpse of what’s to come. We’re just as eager as our supporters for our third season to begin, starting with our club making its debut in Concacaf Champions League next week.”
On the bottom left you’ll find a unique Georgia shaped logo with the number 17 in the middle. This is a tribute to the supporters.
On the back, below the collar, there is a “United” stamp that features a Golden Spike.
