MLS Is Poised To Allow A Third Kit In 2021

According to an article of The Athletic, Major League Soccer's "big sellers may get an even larger platform in the future. According to multiple sources familiar with the situation, MLS is poised to allow a third kit next year for a handful of its best-selling clubs, an option clubs haven’t had for years. Those third kits, which briefly appeared in the mid-2010s, were phased out when they simply didn’t sell well enough".

The Athletic also reports that for the the same reason (not enough sales), the league did away with long-sleeved jerseys last year. However, the long-sleeved MLS kits have now reappeared, with long sleeve jerseys available for some of MLS's biggest clubs.
