For the third consecutive year, all 24 MLS clubs will celebrate the Greener Goals Week of Service by wearing special adidas x Parley eco-friendly kits during Earth Day weekend (April 19-21). These innovative Climalite kits are made from technical yarns comprised of Parley Ocean Plastic, plastic waste collected on beaches and in coastal communities and transformed into high-performance sportswear.
The collaboration between MLS, adidas and Parley for the Oceans encourages fans to decrease their use of single-use plastics and reinforce the importance of changing human attitude and behavior towards plastic pollution through the Parley AIR Strategy: Avoid. Intercept. Redesign.
The message “For the Oceans” is featured in the inside of the neck tape detailing, and each club’s name is featured on the back neck. This year’s jerseys come in bold “Blue Spirit” and “Legend Ink” colors to represent the depth of the oceans.
The Crew will be featured in the new parley jerseys on Saturday, April 20, as the Club hosts the Portland Timbers for a 7:30 p.m. ET kickoff at MAPFRE Stadium.
Supporters can watch the match on FOX Sports Ohio, stream on FOX Sports GO, or listen on 97.1 FM The Fan and www.ColumbusCrewSC.com (English & Spanish).
