Chicago Red Stars 2019 Home Kit

Dubbed the 'Elevated' kit, the new Chicago Red Stars home shirt is one of the club's most custom designs ever.

The Chicago Red Stars 2019 Elevated home jersey sports a unique pattern design in-house by Red Stars graphic designer Anthony Guagliardo that contains the entire Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) ‘L’ train. Named the ‘L’ for the elevation of the tracks in Chicago, the jersey was named the “Elevated” jersey in honor of the train system in the city.

“Growing up in Chicago, I wanted to continue the strong tradition of the city’s themed jerseys for the Red Stars,” Guagliardo said. “I wanted to put my own spin to it and make it unique. I thought to incorporate the ‘L’ train pattern would be something unique to the city and stand out on a jersey. No one has really done something like that before so I spent hours trying to customize this pattern to exactly the look we have now. I hope not just Red Stars fans, but Chicago fans will love this and represent their city and their team.”

The pattern continues on the lower back oft he shirt, transforming into the Chicago skyline. The eponymous red stars, inspired by the iconic Chicago flag, sit on the front of the shirt.

“This jersey is absolutely a pivotal moment in Red Stars history,” said Owner Arnim Whisler. “In a year with the Women’s World Cup and the player’s representing their countries, this breaks it down even more as a representation of Chicago. We were able to fully customize this year’s jersey top with the two crucial pieces of Chicago – the skyline and train system. Our team has always been known to have the top jerseys in the league and I think this year we continue to lead the way again. This jersey is more than just a jersey. It truly is a piece of Chicago and art and I am excited for the Chicago locals to finally see it.”
