FC Cincinnati unveiled their newest kit – the River Kit – this morning at an event at the TQL Stadium Team Store. The newest uniform replaces the primary navy blue Dynamic Kit from the past two seasons and will be worn in the 2023 season alongside the orange Juncta Juvant Kit from last year.
ABOUT THE RIVER KIT
FC Cincinnati’s 2023 primary kit pays tribute to the Ohio River. Cincinnati was founded on the banks of the ‘Mighty Ohio,’ a symbol of power, evolution and the ever-changing landscape of the dynamic Queen City. It represents the literal and philosophical movement of Cincinnati.
Across the chest, tones of blue work together graphically utilizing organic shaping and variable-width lines to illustrate depth and light reflection of water.
A Cincinnati wordmark is displayed on the back neck and represents the bridges that connect our communities and our region.
Located on the jock tag is an illustration of the Roebling Bridge, which is not only an iconic Cincinnati landmark, but a symbol of FC Cincinnati’s identity as a progressive, forward-thinking club.
Showcasing these famous landmarks throughout Cincinnati, the River Kit embodies FC Cincinnati’s connection to the community, and that the club is All For Cincy.
The full kit includes primarily navy blue shorts and socks. The FC Cincinnati crest is above the left hem, the adidas logo is above the right hem and primary sponsor Mercy Health is in the center of the jersey. The kit features adidas’ iconic 3-Stripes design in white on both shoulders, and orange trims the neck and sleeve cuffs. On player uniforms worn in-game, on the right sleeve, Kroger returns as FC Cincinnati’s sleeve partner, while on the left sleeve is the MLS crest and Apple TV logo which will feature on kits for all 29 MLS clubs for the first time this season.
FC Cincinnati will wear the River Kit on February 25 against Houston Dynamo FC at TQL Stadium, the first season-opener at home in club history.
