Soon after the Crew's 2014 primary kit was unveiled for Season Ticket Members and media at Bar Louie in the Arena District Tuesday night, club President Mark McCullers shared his excitement for the new jersey. The new kit's homage to the team's identity as "The Yellow Soccer Team" with Crew Gold and a few new features give it a classic, yet modern feel.
"I love the new jersey," McCullers said. "The gradient diamond pattern and our classic Crew Gold with black accents, I think it's just different enough but classic enough also.
"You see the gold you know it's the Crew."
The new primary kit is now available online and at the Crew Gear Store at Crew Stadium.
