Seattle Sounders Halo 5 Guardians Jersey Revealed

Pitch Black is about to get an upgrade. Seattle Sounders will wear a special Halo-themed kit in the MLS match against LA Galaxy to promote the launch of the Halo 5: Guardians video game.

Available for purchase on October 27 for Xbox One, Halo 5: Guardians is the next installment in the blockbuster Halo franchise and features the "most ambitious, robust and epic Halo campaign and multiplayer experience ever created."

Seattle Sounders To Wear Halo 5: Guardians-themed Jerseys

This is the special Seattle Sounders Halo 5 Guardians Shirts.

The Seattle Sounders Halo Shirt boasts the logo of Halo 5 Guardians on the front. Seattle Sounders uses the black and rave green third kit as base for the special shirt.

It's the first time in the history of the MLS that a club has altered its jersey for a mid-season match, and the first time that Seattle Sounders wear another kit than the trademark Rave Green Seattle Sounders Home Shirt in a MLS regular season home fixture.

"Initiatives like this are what make our partnership with Xbox so engaging and innovative," said Sounders FC Owner Adrian Hanauer. "For the first time in league history, our respective organizations are collaborating to alter the primary partner mark on the front of our jerseys during a regular season campaign. We’re thrilled to work with Xbox on this project, and hope that fans of both Sounders FC and the Halo franchise enjoy seeing our partnership come to life in new and creative ways over the next week."

"We are honored to partner with Sounders FC and have Halo 5: Guardians participate in this historic moment," said Bonnie Ross, Corporate Vice President at Microsoft Studios and head of 343 Industries. "We have so many Sounders FC fans at the studio, and we’ll be there in the stands cheering for them alongside the Master Chief and Spartan Locke."
