The anticipated new Columbus Crew SC jersey appears to have leaked just hours before the official unveiling courtesy of the reliable Footy Headlines. As advertised, it pulls inspiration from the Columbus city flag.
The jersey sports a white base with vertical yellow striping of varying widths in the chest. The sleeve cuffs and neckline are ringed with the red and blue hues of the city flag of Columbus. The arms are white with the Adidas three stripes running up the side panels of the shirt.

It’s a bold design that is certainly a break with tradition. The gradient effect pulls in the traditional yellow while the piping adds a touch of flair. It’s unlike anything the team has used in the past.
Massive Report will have a better look at the official unveiling this afternoon.
