Kansas City Current, Racing Louisville Break Out New Kits for NWSL Regular Season Opening Weekend

The National Women’s Soccer League opened its 2022 regular season over the weekend, and at least two clubs broke out new kits for their first game action.

First, after unveiling a new away kit in late April, the Kansas City Current debut their new red home kit for 2022 in a 2-0 loss to the Houston Dash on Sunday. Dubbed the “Heartland Kit,” the main feature of the red jersey is a tonal current pattern lifted from their crest and splashed across the front.

Meanwhile, Racing Louisville debuted their new away kits for 2022 when they played to a 2-2 draw with OL Reign at Lumen Field in Seattle.

The kits, which were unveiled in late April, are predominantly white with mint green accents. The mint colour is inspired by the mint juleps that are synonymous with the annual Kentucky Derby horse race, held at the Churchill Downs racetrack in Louisville.

The front of the jersey features a pattern of mint green fleurs-de-lis in the same formation as they’re found in the Racing Louisville crest. The Nike logo on the chest and a lily on the right front of the jersey, near the hem, appear in the club’s signature shade of lavender.

The jersey is paired with mint green shorts and white socks.

The Current’s next game is Saturday, May 14, when they hit the road to take on the Orlando Pride. Racing Louisville play host to the Houston Dash that same day.
