An Early Look at MLS Jersey Week

image

Earlier this week, the MLS announced its first Jersey Week, which will occur from February 25 through February 28. MLS said Jersey Week will be held annually as a kick-off to the season. Jersey Week will have the most value if teams and the league are able to stop leaks of the new shirts.

Stopping the leaks may be easier said than done, as online communities and blogs have become quite successful at leaking jersey designs well before they are introduced. As listed below, more than half of the 2013 MLS jerseys appear to have been leaked prior to Jersey Week:

If the leaks detailed above turn out to be correct, nine of 16 jerseys would be leaked or released prior to Jersey Week. Moving Jersey Week a few weeks earlier could help the league prevent leaks and also generate more sales as fans prepare for the upcoming season.

(Leak information primarily sourced from the incomparable Chris Creamer’s Sports Logos Community.)

UNION OPEN PRACTICE - 2/1/2012
They’re baaaaaaack.
Attended the Union’s first open practice of the 2012 season.
[Halfway through practice, the team requested no photography. I was going to hold back on posting these, but since the team has posted 99 pictures, I’ll go ahead and post a few of mine.]
Check out the rest of my photos for important hair developments.  So far, its Freddy vs. Porfilio Lopez for best hairdo on the team, but its early.
