Sporting KC To Wear Throwback Rainbow Jerseys

When Sporting KC hosts the Colorado Rapids on April 13th, they'll be wearing jerseys that pay homage to the club's original rainbow jerseys. Sporting KC was originally known as the Kansas City Wiz, and the April 13th match marks the 20th anniversary of the team's first match, which also came against the Rapids. The Kansas City Star reports Sporting KC will wear the retro rainbow jerseys of the Wiz for that match. 

For warmups, Sporting KC will wear kits that are similar to the original jersey. Here's a photo of the new warmups.

And here's a photo of the 1996 kits.


Sporting KC's actual game jerseys will be their alternate white kits. But, the numbers will feature a rainbow scheme. An image of the kits are embedded below. 

The warmup kits will be available to buy in the stadium. In addition to the jerseys, the club will recognize the fans who have had season tickets for 20 years and the 20-year club employees.
