A couple of weeks ago, I was invited to attend an event put on by our local major league soccer team, The New England Revolution. The event was a fashion show, held at Royale Night Club in Boston, in which they would be unveiling their new 2014 team uniforms.

Before the fashion show started, there was a cocktail hour with the players, which gave fans a chance to grab some autographs and take pictures with their favorite players.  Here I am with Bobby Shuttleworth, Goalkeeper.

I got to meet a lot of the players, actually.

Around 7 pm, it was time for the fashion show where players and their family modeled some team gear.

The final part of the fashion show was the official unveiling of the new primary kit (uniforms).

The new design features a simple dark navy jersey that is significantly lighter in weight than previous years; a larger, re-designed logo for the team’s official jersey partner, United Healthcare; three red stripes down both shoulders of the jersey; the Flag of New England centered between players’ shoulders on the back; “New England EST 1996” printed on the inside neck of the jersey; a red, white and blue interwoven stripe across the back, above the players’ names; white shorts with three red stripes down the sides; and blue socks with thin horizontal white lines spaced evenly down the leg and foot.

After they left the stage, the players who were wearing the new jerseys came out into the audience so that we could get a closer look at them.  I accosted poor Charlie Davies for a picture as he passed by.

I am hoping to make it to at least one game this year.  After all, they play at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro (that’s also where the New England Patriots play) and that’s only about 15 minutes from my house.

So, what do you think of the new jerseys?

  26. Looks like you had a great time. Love the jerseys!

  27. How interesting that all those talented soccer players are also quite hunky. (Don’t tell the hubs I said that). That looks like a really cool and exciting event!

  28. The jerseys look great! Very fresh and modern looking! I have an athletic son and I know how important the uniform is to their confidence. Cool event! (Kim)

  29. Looks like a great time! I like the new jersey’s because the letters are big and bold and the dark blue is striking too.

  39. Looks like you had an awesome time and who doesn’t love to hang out with soccer players. Also, the uniforms look awesome.

  40. I do like them… not so much the socks though. We make it to at least two games a year, and always have a great time. Fagundez is our favorite, Youngest has his jersey, and I don’t care if I’m old enough to be his mother…. he’s adorable. (In the least salkerish yucky creepy kind of way) :) Seriously, you should go…. it’s a fantastic time. No parking fees, in and out of Gillette quickly, lots of families, and very little OT, so you’re out in 90 minutes. :)

  41. This is the type of even you really should let us (or me) know about ahead of time. I have a TON of MLS trading cards I could have sent you!

  42. I love soccer – used to play! I like the uniforms a lot! Hope they have a great season!

  47. What a great event. I love the fact that you got to enjoy some drinks with the players and take pictures with them. That is a great way for them to connect with their fans.

  48. I love soccer only if our national team plays. :) I did not know that they would have fashion show to showcase their uniform before playing. I am sure that events like these will help players and fans to know each other much better.

  49. I like them – very nice.
    And I think that is a very nice gig to get invited to as a blogger! ;)
    nothing that cool ever happens to me.
