Major League Soccer is recognizing the contributions of Hispanic people to both soccer and other areas of life in the United States with special pre-match tops released last week.
The tops celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month made their debut prior to MLS matches held last weekend. They have a black base and a multicolored pattern featuring dots, squares and zigzag shapes along with the name of manufacturer Adidas and the Spanish phrase “SABOR Y ESTILO” (“Flavor and style”).
The tops also have a solid black collar and the club crest rendered in black and white. Each club’s usual training jersey sponsor (if they have one) appears in white, either with a black outline or in a black box.
Here are the tops for all 26 MLS teams based in the United States:
Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated in the U.S. between September 15 and October 15 every year.
Since 2018, Canada has proclaimed Latin American Heritage Month every October, so we could see similar tops for MLS’s three Canadian clubs — Toronto FC, CF Montréal and Vancouver Whitecaps — closer to the end of the month.
