FC Cincinnati Will Wear Replica-Quality Kits - Here Is Why

New Major League Soccer franchise FC Cincinnati yesterday released their new kits for their first MLS season. Now it has been revealed that FC Cincinnati will not wear the best jersey quality Adidas has to offer.

FC Cincinnati Kits Feature Replica Kit Technology As They "Didn’t Have Enough Lead Time" For Authentic-Quality Jerseys

The reason for FC Cincinnati's kits to feature only Adidas second-best technology is that they "didn’t have enough lead time to have “authentic” quality jerseys developed. They are “replica” quality, but are the exact same jerseys that the team will wear."

In fact, the FC Cincinnati 2019 home kit is a mi Team jersey, while the away jersey is even just the standard Adidas Condivo 18 in white and black. Both kits come with Climate (second-best, replica technology) instead of Climachill (authentic, Adidas' best kit technology).

FC Cincinnati is only selling "replica-quality" versions of their first-ever MLS home kit. The away kit is not available yet.

The club already announced that "they will have authentic quality and replica quality jerseys starting next season!"
