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.
