This jersey will be worn in conjunction with the gold kits that were debut ahead of the 2017 season.
From the press release:
“The 2018 Black Kit features a one-button collar, embossed checkerboard fabric and three dark-on-dark stripes along the kit’s sides. The black is offset by an all-gold Crew SC badge on the front as well as gold-colored names and numbers on the back. A one-of-a-kind jock tag designating “Charter Member #01” rests on the front of the jersey in recognition of being the first MLS club charter awarded. Additionally, a heritage shield commemorating the club’s initial MLS season in 1996 is affixed to the back just above the player names.”
