The Columbus Crew will be sporting a memorial patch on both their primary and secondary jerseys for the remainder of the season to honour the memory of Kirk Urso, the 22-year-old Columbus midfielder who died suddenly earlier this week.
There will be two versions of the patch, one in black for the primary and one in gold for the secondary jersey. Both patches will feature Urso’s number 15 inside a circle and will be affixed to the upper-right of each players jersey front.
Columbus Crew equipment manager Rusty Wummel explained to theCrew.com:
“We kept (the design) within the style and tradition that we have established at the club in honoring those that have passed… We have two styles. The black will be used on the home kits and the gold will be used on the secondary kits, placement is above the Adidas logo.”
