A new MLS season is on the horizon, which means we have a whole bunch of new threads to check out and weigh in on.

Over the past few weeks, clubs have given us sneak peaks and drops on the new kits and uniforms they’ll be wearing this season.

Here’s a rundown of all the new kits you’ll see this year, and where you can find them online. We’ll update this post as more teams announce and release their new uniforms leading up to kickoff on March 2.

Atlanta United: New primary kit

The defending MLS Cup champs are getting a new primary kit with a tweaked design that features thinner stripes down the jersey, and a jock tag that’s a gold representation of Georgia.

FC Cincinnati: Inaugural MLS kits

A welcome to the MLS also means new primary and secondary kits to start 2019. The FC Cincinnati primary jersey features blue and orange stripes, while the secondary kit is an all-white look with the team patch on the chest.

Chicago Fire: New primary and secondary kits

By teaming up with a new jersey partner, Motorola, the Fire will also debut new primary and secondary kits for the 2019 season. The new kits will go on sale March 1.

D.C. United: New secondary kit

On Thursday, the team announced that they’ll be introducing a new secondary kit with a, “white-and-silver look with a streamlined, minimalist vibe.” Our friends Black and Red United, along with the rest of Twitter, were not particularly fond of the new kit.

Houston Dynamo: New primary kit

Dubbed “The Energy Kit,” the Dynamo’s new primary kit remains bright orange like previous uniforms, but features a new jersey-front partner. Like previous kits, the jock tag features the Texas flag and two MLS Cup championship stars above the crest.

LAFC: New secondary kit

Dubbed the “Street by Street” jersey, LAFC’s new secondary kit is white with gray hoops across the chest. The jock tag features the club’s winged design and signature crest, along with “Street X Street, Block X Block, One X One,” which is the team’s rally cry.

LA Galaxy: New secondary kit

The Galaxy’s new secondary uniform, called “The Navy Kit,” features vertical stripes down the shirt and a jock tag on the bottom that reads, “This is LA.” The stars above the team crest also represent the five MLS Cups the franchise has won.

Minnesota United: New secondary kit

The United will debut a new secondary white kit called the “Drift” jersey, which is an ode to the hella cold Minnesota weather.

Montreal Impact: New primary kit

The Impact will debut a new primary kit in 2019, and the threads will feature the team’s customary blue and black vertical stripes. However, as the shirt goes down, the stripes fade away into an all-black look. The bottom left side of the kit also features the North Star bell, which is rung at Stade Saputo after the Impact score a goal.
