    Don't worry, you aren't the only one. Football is a little too commercialized sometimes. To me, a club's uniform colours should be sacred, especially the home kit.
    Calgary is also regionalized. The mountains are an hour and a half away. It makes the shirt nicer, though, as this city isn't exactly known for it's architecture.

    You are right about them talking about cities then putting Van Isle on the back, that was silly. 
    Absolutely everything else I would say you are fairly unjustified getting in a sweat about.
    Maybe I'll get to take in a match with you all if they show these matches, somehow, at the Yates St Tap House.
    I expect you to be wearing the away shirt!!

    Yup, individually they are not bad. It's the whole, "away teams will wear the same colour" that bothers me.

     
    What fantasy world are you living in?

    Second or "away" kits, and lets not forget the obscenity that are "third" kits are very much designed with marketing in mind. 

     
    Umm...what?!?

    I was complaining about calling this a "city" kit when, as you have clearly described, it is a "regional" identity.  Get your frigging criticism pointed in the right direction buddy.

    I won't lie, I've been a supporter of Herdman despite his goofs, I've been patient and given the man the benefit of the doubt, but if he fails to make El Ocho, specially when for the first time since who knows when the odds are actually in our favour, I will not make any excuses for him. This is why he was hired, to get the CMNT to a world cup. He's had time to learn and tweak things around, but we're no longer competing for Gold Cup qualification or CNL spots, WCQ is the real deal.

    See I am the opposite.  I dont like Herdman but I really would like his moves to pan out and I could start to like him.  Sure he has made some strange goofs but coming through in the next round of games will go a long way to winning over skeptics.  He's had 2.5 years to get settled in and get the players/program lined up his way.  Hes got more young offensive talent than a CDN coach has seen in a long time.  Time to get it done.

    Didn't they learn their lesson from last season? Last year all three of their name players, Haber, Issey and De Jong ended up injured leaving them with a thin squad. Fortunately their young squad replacements performed better than expected.

    While discussions regarding COVID-19 can be on topic in this thread when relating to the logistics of playing qualifying matches, the last 15 or so posts (that I have deleted) devolved into a debate about the illness itself and personal attacks. Please stay on topic in here.

    Wow, some of the reactions. Because the graphic design standard in Canada is a really high level, come on. 
    People put up with pathetic design day in day out, wear cookie cutter clothes from the racks at big box stores, then they do a shirt for a 10 game tournament that is radically different than anything ever seen, at an unnecessary development cost, ensuring it'll be an amazingly specific commemoration shirt for a very unusual season, and people are raging, it's all fire and brimstone.
    You are not even going to get to wear one of these to a game, you dopes.

    ted reacted to Zem in New away kits...   
    I agree that I'd rather see clubs come up with their own unique away kits, but this isn't really out of line with football traditions in the sense that while most clubs put a lot of focus on their home kit, usually the second colours are more to stand out against opposing home kits and aren't designed with marketability in mind. People rarely buy the away kits of European clubs because they're utilitarian while the home kits are the iconic, good-looking ones fans want to buy. Usually the away kit is just a monochrome and there's rarely any standard colour for them; it's just whatever does the job.
    So I think the fact that they're all black, a colour that isn't prominent in any of the home kits, is pretty much in line with how clubs have traditionally approached away kits. Again, I agree that the clubs' away kits all being the same essential design is a bit lame and I wish they could have designed their own, but I think this is totally fine. We probably won't even be seeing these kits every game since teams will likely just wear their home colours whenever they don't clash.

    Pathetic. 

    As I posted to a PFC group:
    PFC Away jersey on it's own: looks really cool, love the lighthouse design.
    As one of the series of cookie-cutter jerseys: this is horrific and betrays a corporate mentality with no respect for football traditions or local autonomy.
    Come across a game on TV or online and you will have to play "guess the opponent" because other than one or maybe two jerseys that are actually distinct at a distance, they all look the same except for the corporate logos.
    Team colours should mean something and be easily identifiable rather than be relegated to accents. There was no need to change both jerseys in only the second year of existence and both our existing kits were fantastic. Sell us new merchandise all you like, but changing both kits is just a cynical, corporate cash-grab.
    The real test will be next year. If they make ANY kits changes for 2021 after the 2020 "season" they will deserve not one red cent of our money.

    I'd be fine with teams keeping their 2020 home kits into 2021 but producing new away kits, with character, for 2021. Or, in the case of Valour, reverting to their excellent 2019 away kit.

    There aren't a ton, but a few have had a decent go at it.   
    - Mozzi Gyori played with a few clubs in NA and Europe.  I used to play with him when he was 12 and joined his dad (Cshaba, a former Yugoslov pro) in a local pick-up game.  Mozzi's older brother Shaul was killed in a car accident at the age of 17 and everyone expected him to turn pro as well.
    - Lewis Page played pro soccer domestically and briefly in England but has established himself as a great coach.  I worked in the office beside Lewis a few years ago.
    - Paul Craig played with FC Edmonton in NASL.  Don't know too much about him.
    - Ibrah Sanoh plays with the HFX Wanderers and before that tore up the Canadian Collegiate soccer scene with the Holland College Hurricanes.  I played indoor against Ibrah and his brother played on my team for a bunch of years (and coached one of my kids).   
    Can't think of a 5th, but watching the talent of kids now coming up through the system and their access to elite training streams, I am confident there will be more in the future
