The 2018 Columbus Crew SC Black Kit is here!
On the morning of January 4, 2018, at MAPFRE Stadium, Columbus Crew SC unveiled the 2018 Black Kit, featuring a black jersey, black shorts and black socks. The Black & Gold's kit portfolio for this year includes the 2018 Black Kit as the secondary kit and the 2017 Gold Kit, which was unveiled ahead of the 2017 campaign, as the primary kit.
The 2018 Black Kit features a one-button collar, embossed checkerboard fabric and three dark-on-dark stripes along the kit’s sides. The black is offset by an all-gold Crew SC badge on the front as well as gold-colored names and numbers on the back. A one-of-a-kind jock tag designating “Charter Member #01” rests on the front of the jersey in recognition of being the first MLS club charter awarded. Additionally, a heritage shield commemorating the club’s initial MLS season in 1996 is affixed to the back just above the player names.
Pre-orders for the 2018 Black Kit are available now through the Crew SC Shop at MAPFRE Stadium. Supporters with questions or wanting to reserve their new 2018 jersey can call 614-447-4244 or visit the Crew SC Shop in person. The 2018 Black Kit in authentic sizes, as well as Crew SC’s complete replica jersey line - featuring women’s and youth jerseys - will be available in mid-February at the Crew SC Shop at MAPFRE Stadium as well as participating retail locations.
